Australia most successful reality show Got Talent return to screens

CANBERRA (Australia) The most successful reality television show in history, Got Talent, returns to Australian screens.

Contestants from different walks of life will demonstrate their skills in Got Talent in front of a star-studded panel of judges.

New judges Shane Jacobson, Lucy Durack, Manu Fieldel and former Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger had front row seats witnessing some of the most mind-blowing perform-ances in the show’s history.

Host Ricki-Lee Coulter opened up yesterday about how she lost her voice after filming most of the audition episodes.

“I was screaming for most of the auditions, I’m not going to lie,” she told Sunrise.

“Every second act I was saying, ‘Don’t try this at home’. Either that or I was crying.”

Jacobson reflected on his highlight of the premiere episode, which airs tomorrow at 7pm on Seven/GWN7, revealing his portrait was speed-painted by an artist who compensated using a paintbrush for something more daring.

“There was a man who came on stage and painted me using a part of his … anatomy,” he told Sunrise, leaving people guessing at what “appendage” he was talking about.

“He actually did a very good painting and it was very amusing,” he said.

Perth-raised Durack also spoke of another standout performance during the first episode, inspiring 22-year-old blind singer Paul Kapeleris, above right.

“From the moment he walked out, you just knew there was something special about him,” Durack said.

“He just gave this absolutely incredible performance and we were absolutely floored.”
