Australia’s Got Talent – Dawn French Announced As A Judge

Today Dawn French has been announced as a new judge on Australia’s Got Talent. This quite a coup and will be an entertaining addition to the show.  She will join Mel B who was announced yesterday as a judge on the show moving from The X Factor Australia to Australia’s Got Talent.

What is bemusing is that a show with a title of Australia’s Got Talent there is currently no Australians on the judging panel. However there are two spots left, as the Daily Telegraph has revealed the panel will be expanded to four so maybe an Aussie talent will grab the last couple of places.

It is rumoured that Danni Minogue formerly of AGT may be signing on for The X Factor.

Love Dawn – very funny lady. Will be interesting to see how she and Mel B work together.

If the rumour about Danni going to XFactor is true, I guess the other rumour about Sharon Osbourne coming here for it, isn’t.

Me too. I’m currently reading Dear Fatty and she is hilarious. Lovely lady.

I hear she is not a fan of flying, so she’ll be on a cruise ship to get out here.

Interesting choice, didn’t see that one coming.
I only know her from Vicar of Dibley, does she sing as well?

I don’t think she sings A.P but AGT isn’t just for singers, it’s the whole box and dice. I reckon she has enough cred in the entertainment industry to qualify as a judge, given Kyle Sandilands was one on the Ch7 version.

I like Dawn French and am sure she’ll be great. But am just a bit miffed that these kinds of shows don’t support our own. Especially in the case of the title “Australia’s Got Talent”!! Hmm..they obviously don’t think we do.

Would prefer to see an Aussie in the role!

Maybe they can have a competition of how to be a judge for talent shows.

I think you’re onto something littlepetal.

Little Petal – LOL – good one.

Christina – Agree I hope the other two on the panel are Australian. However if Sharon Osbourne is the another one that would mean three women on a talent show judging panel – now that would be unusual.

Girl power! :)

I’m still scratching my head at this. What the hell does she know about singing, apart from being another from the UK. You’d think they could find some Aussies.
