2013-04-12_1156It’s official.

Dannii Minogue is joining The X Factor Australia judging panel.

The former Australia’s Got Talent host has posted via Facebook:

“I’m so excited to be the show from the other side of the cameras and joining Ronan, Nat and the amazing team of people behind the scenes who create this ‘Light Entertainment’ Logie Award-winning entertainment.

“Can’t wait to find out who the fourth judge is this year! Stay tuned.”

Minogue, who was still on contract to Seven, was always the hot tip to join the Seven show, following the exit of Mel B. and Guy Sebastian.

She has previously been a judge on The X Factor UK.

“My acts won the show twice in the UK and I can’t wait to help Australia’s next big singing sensation win this year’s competition. I have a real passion for nurturing and fighting for the artists I believe in and I think I learnt a thing or two from my years sitting in the judges chair alongside Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole.”

The X Factor just won Most Outstanding Light Entertainment Award at the Logies.

  1. @SaxyBre84 Because they are considered talent shows and not reality shows by TV Week, which makes perfect sense to me. The Apprentice or The Block should not be in the same category as a song and dance show, really.
