Ricki-Lee Coulter has been named as the new presenter for Seven’s Australia’s Got Talent.
Coulter commented: “I’m so excited to be hosting the show.
“It’s gonna be so much fun! I’m a big fan and knew it was something I’d really enjoy.
“Not only do I get a front row seat to watch the best talent Australia has to offer, but I also know what it feels like to stand side of stage waiting to step out and do a performance that potentially could change your life.”
The news follows the announcement earlier this week of the star-studded judging panel:
Nicole Scherzinger – Grammy-nominated singer, dancer and TV personality.
Manu Feildel – Acclaimed chef, author and My Kitchen Rules judge.
Shane Jacobson – AFI winning actor, director, writer and comedian.
Lucy Durack – Award-winning stage and screen star.
The Got Talent format has had more than 900 million global viewers since it began in 2006 and has aired in 194 territories worldwide.
It holds the Guinness World Record title as the Most Successful Reality Television Format in history with 72 local versions around the world.
Coulter continued: “It’s a show that families and people of all ages can sit down and watch together.
“It’s feel-good TV and there’s no other show like it.
“You get to watch these incredible acts that will have you hanging on the edge of your seat, gasping with shock and screaming with excitement.
“What I love about AGT is that there is so much variety; it’s not just confined to singers or dancers.
“It’s every type of weird and wonderful coming together on stage.
“It’s always surprising too. Just when you thought you’d seen it all…you’ll see something that makes your jaw drop! And that’s the beauty of AGT.”
