Got Talent Australia

At the turn of the century, reality shows have started proliferating in TV stations all over the world. And Australia is one of those nations that adopted the fad that crazed millions of TV audiences of all ages. Originating from the UK, Australia’s Got Talent is a spin-off of the reality TV show Britain’s Got Talent.

Same with its predecessor, Australia’s Got Talent showcases the different talents of the Australian people. The show does not limit the contestants to a particular kind of talent.

If anything, it even encourages any and all talents outside of the usual sing and dance numbers. So here, one will see a wide variety of production numbers ranging from the usual sing and dance, to theatrical,



to operatic, to magic, and even to eccentric and peculiar abilities that have never been seen before.The contestants that are actually shown on television have first undergone a series of rigid auditions and screening before finally performing on air.

But even then, they are not assured to get the approval of the stern judges. The mechanics is that the contestants perform on stage under the scrutiny of meticulous judges.

The judges can fail them right on the spot even in the middle of the performance by clicking or buzzing a cross mark if they don’t like what they see.

And should they get a cross mark from all three judges, they have to stop right there and then.


But even if they were able to finish their act without being interrupted by the buzzers of the judges, they are still not sure to win or get in the next round as they have to get approvals from at least two of the three judges. Should they get only one, they wouldn’t qualify for the next round. Australia Got Talent was first seen on television through Seven Network on the 18th of February 2007. Grant Denver hosted the show while three prominent celebrities passed strict judgment on the contestants.


The judges of the first season were Tom Burlinson, Dannii Minogue and Red Symons.The show proved to be a hit with audiences that it was moved from a conservative timeslot at Sunday early evening to a more competitive Tuesday prime timeslot at night. Followed religiously by the Australian people, the reality show was given another season, which started on the 29th of April 2008.

Still proving to be a success, it was given yet another season of airing, which began on the 4th of February 2009, this time on Wednesday nights. Its fourth season started in April 2010.
