Alesha Dixon is going down under and has been confirmed as a judge on the upcoming series of Australia’s Got Talent, which is set to air later this year.
Dixon has been a judge on British’s Got Talent since 2012 and was a judge on the second series of America’s Got Talent: The Champions. She also filled in as a guest judge on The X Factor in 2018.
“I’m super excited to be joining the panel at AGT,” Dixon said in a statement. “I can’t wait to see what talent Australia has to give and I’m really looking forward to working with my fellow judges.”
Dixon will be joined on the panel by How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris, and Australian artists Kate Ritchie and Shane Jacobson.
“To say I’m a fan of the AGT franchise is an understatement,” Patrick-Harris said. “I’ve been watching since the very first season. “Australia has phenomenal talent across so many disciplines, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to join AGT in 2021 to see firsthand what the country’s awesome contestants have to offer.”
Production for the upcoming series will take place at The Star Event Centre in Sydney from June 30 to July 6.
Australia’s Got Talent will air on Channel 7 and 7Plus.
