With Guy Sebastian and Mel B pulling out, speculation has been rife as to who will sit on the X Factor judging panel. Seven has all but signed on the dotted line with former LMFAO frontman, Redfoo.
Stefan Kendal Gordy, aka Redfoo, certainly has the DNA to pick a star.
He is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy Jnr, who discovered worldwide acts such as the Supremes, Marvin Gaye as well as the Jackson Five.
Meanwhile, Dannii Minogue has firmed as the other seat on the judging panel next to Ronan Keating and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.
A sweetheart of network executives, the station was adamant to have Minogue remain at the “Seven family” following Australia’s Got Talent moving to Channel 9.
Having worked on The X Factor UK for four years, Minogue knows the format.
And with her work commitments in the UK as a judge on Britain and Ireland’s Text Top Model soon to be finished, Minogue would be free to start work on the reality singing series back in Australia.
