Seven has announced the total judging line-up for this season of Australia’s Got Talent

Patrick-Harris, who is American, is best known for his television work in How I Met Your Mother, as well as his role in the critically acclaimed film Gone Girl.

He has also hosted a number of awards shows, including the Oscars, Tonys, and Emmys.

Alesha Dixon is an English singer and television personality, who has judged the British version of the show and America’s Got Talent: The Champions, while homegrown star Kate Ritchie is an actress and current host of popular Nova radio show Kate, Tim & Joel. Ritchie last appeared on TV in 2013.

In a statement, she said: “I am not only flattered to be sharing the AGT panel with this season’s line-up but super excited to see the incredible talent Australia has to offer.”

Returning to the judging panel is Shane Jacobson, an Australian actor and writer best known for his work in Kenny. 

Patrick-Harris said, “I’m a performer who has taken many stages throughout the, well, many stages of my career – be it acting, singing, dancing, hosting, juggling, magic-ing, even breathing fire – and I have developed enormous respect for anyone with the courage to pursue their talents and passions at any level, let alone televised on a national stage.”

“Australia has phenomenal talent across so many disciplines, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to join AGT in 2021 to see first-hand what the country’s awesome contestants have to offer.”

2019 judges Manu Fidel, Nicole Scherzinger and Lucy Durack will not be returning.

Angus Ross, Seven’s director of network programming, said, “this is AGT on a scale like never before – to be the best, you have to beat the best. Alongside the judging panel’s world-class talent, AGT promises to deliver world-class acts, with all the spectacular, surprising and must-see moments Australian families absolutely love.”

Fremantle Australia director of unscripted, Jonathon Summerhayes, said, “We’re delighted to welcome this megastar judging panel to AGT.”

“This show is a juggernaut that uncovers acts who resonate around the world and we can’t wait to shine a spotlight on some incredible Australian and international talent.”

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
