    The judges on this panel look terrible…Delta Goodrem and Seal, wtf. Joel Madden was decent in his brief appearances on The X Factor but Keith Urban is a tool, won’t watch him in anything.

    The US judging panel is way better, Adam Levine, Cee Lo, Xtina and Blake Shelton…you can’t even compare the two

    Wonder if his wardrobe will be more extensive than on MTWI.

    He’s not doing a very good job hosting The Magicians however ….

    Maybe he won’t be so bad when he doesn’t have to commentate people spinning around in toilet paper.

    How does someone get hosting duties on television in multiple continents??

    I don’t see myself watching this, plus Joel is the only judge I would be interested in listening to, unless he just has a few catch phrases like Mark Holden and no actual substance to his commentary.

    Well thankfully it’s not Jules Lund or Shelly Craft.

    I find it hard to understand his accent but anyway, it could be a good choice.
