Trivia

Matthew Newton was originally announced as Season 2 host, and had filmed several hours worth of footage during the audition & bootcamp stages. However, due to negative publicity from an alleged altercation with his girlfriend Rachael Taylor, Matthew resigned from his position as host, just one week before the first episode went to air. This caused last minute re-edits to remove all footage of Matthew from the show, as replacement Luke Jacobz was called upon to host. See more »

One of the best seasons yet... totally don't understand the current rating!
24 July 2014 | by vegaskaneSee all my reviews

I never post or review, but seriously the current season is one of the best out of all the similar types of shows.... hands down! Just watch and compare it to Rising Star, or the the Voice! Some of the talent they have this year is Sick! Also some of the most diverse talent gets to shine and be heard when they would never reach a global audience based on to many factors that have nothing to do with there talent. Thank goodness for shows like this that brings exceptional people to the front. And I love Ronan hes honest when he has to be "the voice of reason" but you can tell he is emotionally invested in the talent he believes in. The rest of the judges are awesome as well, the tend to pick some of the riskier talent which balances out extremely well! I cant believe the current IMDb rating, please vote if you love this show!
