Guy Sebastian will be joining Iggy Azalea on The X Factor in 2016.
“It’s really an honour to be in this role I just love what this show is about, it’s about prepping an artist for the industry.”
This year will mark Sebastian’s fifth time at the judges’ desk, taking Reece Mastin and Samantha Jade to victory in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
A household name with a recording career spanning over 14 years and a winner of four ARIA awards, Sebastian is also the only Australian male artist to achieve six number one singles.
Channel Seven’s Director of Production Brad Lyons says: “Guy is such a seasoned artist with undisputed chart success; he also knows a star when he sees one. We can’t wait to see what he brings to this new season.”
The X Factor stage has never been so intense. Artists will be developed and nurtured like never before. With live experience in front of our studio audience and expert mentoring from our judges, contestants are transformed into superstars.
