The X Factor Judging Panel for 2015’s Australian show has finally been announced, and it sees some new faces replacing Redfoo, Natalie Bassingthwaite, and Ronan Keating. Joining Dannii Minogue on the judging panel will be US rocker Chris Isaak, UK singer James Blunt with Guy Sebastian making his return after a two year absence.

Chris Isaak is excited to be heading down under from the USA. “I’m excited to join THE X FACTOR, it is going to be surreal to be on the show as a judge after having watched so many episodes as a fan. I know it’s a show with a history of articulate intelligent judges, and I know they wanted to change that up so they called me. I have watched the show at home and rooted for my favourites, now I will be doing pretty much the same thing…only I will comb my hair and put on a clean shirt. I’m ready!”

James Blunt too is excited about the new role and said, “The most fun job I can imagine, in the best country in the world”.

And Guy Sebastian, who mentored two winners previously, Reece Mastin and Samantha Jade, said, “I loved my time as a judge on THE X FACTOR so I’m really excited to be coming back. I can’t wait to get to work on finding incredible new Australian talent and looking forward to working with this new panel of judges. I’ve won twice so they better be ready because I’m back and ready to go for my third win!”

Dannii Minogue too is excited to be back. “I’m thrilled to be back on THE X FACTOR this year and to work with Chris, Guy and James. With this new line up of judges, I’m sure it will keep me on my toes but those boys better be ready because I’m in this to win it. I’m very excited to see what amazing contestants we’ll find in 2015″.

Auditions have trailblazed through the country for the Channel Seven series but if you know someone that missed out, they can still audition online here.
