Channel Nine was just as interested in hiring Kyle Sandilands as Seven, the new Australia’s Got Talent judge has said.
Both networks were on the phone on January 1st -his first day out of contract with TEN after being dumped from Australian Idol.
“I couldn’t do anything after I got sacked because I was still contracted to TEN,” he told the Sunday Herald Sun.
“But then Seven rang and had this (AGT) on offer while Nine said they wanted me to do something, but they had nothing, and I didn’t want to do Burke’s Backyard.
“Seven was the only one that was real and had something that I was interested in doing.”
Sandilands has been recording audition episodes with Dannii Minogue and Brian McFadden.
