  1. It’s good to hear Jack will be back. What I’m finding with these Champions shows now is that they’re all the same almost with a few different acts thrown in there. From what I can see there are at least 6 acts from BGT The Champions on this version just gone. Will be good to watch though.

  2. Next Year it’s Australia’s Got Talent Champions right? If that’s the case why is 7 running ads asking for people to audition for Australia’s Got Talent next season?
