Dawn French Joins Australia's Got Talent Judging Panel 2013

Dawn French Joins Mel B as an Australia's Got Talent Judge

Channel Nine has announced UK comedy star Dawn French as the second judge for the 2013 series of Australia’s Got Talent, joining Mel B on the panel. You’d be forgiven for thinking the show was Britain’s Got Talent, but there are reports that the final two judges — Channel Nine is extending the talent from three to four — will be Australian. Dawn, best known for her work in The Vicar of Dibley and her comedy sketch show French and Saunders with Jennifer Saunders, has been praised as Nine’s head of television Michael Healy as “widely recognised and adored by Australians and her contribution to the show will deliver on our promise for a bigger and better series.”

There has also been buzz about what will happen to the 2013 series of The X Factor. Mel B’s new commitment to AGT and Channel Nine means she won’t be returning to The X Factor, and in a case of reality TV musical chairs, Dannii Minogue, who judged Australia’s Got Talent on Channel Seven for years, is tipped to take her place. Reports also say that Guy Sebastian is considering leaving the show to focus on his own music.
