On the eve of the 2010 Grand Final Verdict show, Channel Seven and FremantleMedia Australia today announced a fifth series of Australia’s Got Talent for 2011.
The talent show has enjoyed its most successful season, hitting a ratings high last week for part one of the Grand Final – with 1.831 million viewers, making it the Number One show for Tuesday night.
With Kyle Sandilands and Brian McFadden joining Dannii Minogue on the judging panel, and with Grant Denyer back as host, a whole new audience has been introduced to Australia’s Got Talent.
Seven’s Head of Production, Brad Lyons, said today: “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.”
FremantleMedia Australia (FMA) CEO, Ian Hogg, 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.”
Only one episode remains of the 2010 series – the spectacular Grand Final Verdict. Tomorrow night, we find out which of the eight acts will take home the $250,000 prize money.
Seven has firmly established itself as the home of Australia’s favourite entertainment programs. With Australia’s Got Talent wrapping up this week, there is more to come – with Dancing With the Stars returning this month and this year’s most anticipated new series launch of The X-Factor coming soon.
