Australia’s Got Talent – Gonski

Channel NINE have chopped Australia’s Got Talent from their schedule. After acquiring the show after SEVEN dropped it, the ratings did not do as well as they hoped.

The network invested in the show with expensive salaries to pay for Dawn French, Kyle Sandilands and Mel B. I am going to presume Rookie judge Timomatic’s salary was not as high. However viewer interest waned during the series.

Mel B will still be seen on NINE with her being signed up to be a judge on The Voice Kids. Hopefully Timomatic will get another chance at a reality show as he was refreshingly entertaining on screen.

Whoever made this overdue decision has real talent.

What! No more Uncle Ted and his trained goanna? Or old Auntie Betty dancing in her petticoat. The cream of Australian TV.
Sarcastic emo.

Agree the aunty bettys and uncle teds aren’t much chop daisy, but it’s the only talent show that gives non-singing entertainers a go. Dance group Justice Crew, guitarist Joe Robinson, dancer Timomatic and illusionist Cosantino used the show to launch their careers. They are all doing a lot better than most contestants from XF and the Voice, winners or not.
