Seven has announced a fifth series of Australia’s Got Talent for 2011.
The revamped series concludes tonight following its most successful season so far. Last week’s first half of the 2-part Grand Final topped 1.83 million viewers.
But the announcement doesn’t indicate if any of the judges, Kyle Sandilands, Brian McFadden, Dannii Minogue or host Grant Denyer are returning. McFadden has previously indicated he will relocate to the US and expressed little interest in a TV career.
Seven’s Head of Production, Brad Lyons, said: “We are thrilled to have grown Got Talent even further this year and it’s a credit to the whole team. The new judging line-up has worked a treat, and the calibre of this year’s acts and their stories have really struck a chord with audiences. We look forward to building on that even further in 2011.”
Ian Hogg, CEO of producers FremantleMedia Australia added: “What a sensational series 2010 has been. Seven and ourselves have worked very hard to lift the program to a new level. We couldn’t be happier with the results.”
