By David Knox on June 3, 2013 / Filed Under News 13

AGT20217And here’s your first look the the judges and host of Australia’s Got Talent together, (L to R) Julia Morris, Kyle Sandilands, Dawn French, Geri Halliwell and Timomatic.

The new panel was put through their paces at auditions in Melbourne at Her Majesty’s Theatre on the weekend.

Word is host Julia Morris ended up on stage with several of the acts.

Auditions in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney continue across the next three weeks.

    Apart from timomatic the rest of the judges are a bunch of old has beens . Seriously re hashing this show from seven when it clearly past its use by date . The ratings on seven showed that theres no room for yet another crappy realty talent show. . These shows are only ever about the judges, the talent is long forgotten once the show finishes . Anyone name one winner from any of these shows thats gone on to national and international stardom. Its just there to fill the egos of the past stars .

    GM Petrie: There are 4 judges, with 2 Aussies.

    So three of the five judges are foreigners? Great.

    Agree with Mac (great respect for Dawn and Julia) – but I will never watch any show that endorses Sandilands.

    Interesting to read about Julia joining some of the acts on stage… it seems like they’re really pushing her as the host, a contrast to the recent trend of these type of shows hiring milquetoast hosts who won’t get in the way of the judges (Luke Jacobz, Darren McMullen, Sarah Wilson)

    Got great respect for Dawn and Julia but the others are enough to put me off wanting to even give it a shot.

    @JennyW – I’m sure Simon Cowell’s bank manager is more than happy to see AGT and X Factor go head to head though!

    I can’t believe Simon Cowell is letting AGT and X Factor go up against each other.

    Jake: Before you next criticise a personality it does help to read the story properly first? Besides Julia Morris has years in the entertainment industry.

    James: I’ll be having words with the publicist who assured me I had an unpublished photo. I’ve removed the Exclusive word.

    What does Julia Morris know about judging talent?? I won’t be watching anyways…the inclusion of “Sir” Kyle Sandilords as a judge saw to that….Channel 9 have definitely lost the plot and have a monumental flop on their hands with this one!!!

    How is this an exclusive? It was put on the Official AGT Facebook Page yesterday at 9:01am.
