Sandilands joins Seven’s Australia’s Got Talent

Seven has confirmed Kyle Sandilands will join the network as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent, less than a year after he was booted off Ten’s Australian Idol.  

Australia’s Got Talent is hosted by Grant Denyer and has featured Dannii Minogue, Tom Burlinson and Red Symons as judges.

It has not been confirmed at this stage who Sandilands will replace, but there is speculation that Burlinson will not return to the show.

Minogue, who recently announced her pregnancy is said to have already signed for another series.

Sandilands, a co-host of Austereo’s 2Day FM breakfast show, was dropped from Australian Idol last year following the controversy over the lie detector incident on his radio show which saw a 14 year old girl reveal that she had been raped.

Meanwhile, speculation that Australian Idol will not be returning to Ten this year is yet to be confirmed.
