Australia's Got Talent is an Australian reality television show, based on the original UK series, to find new talent. The sixth series aired on the Seven Network from 16 April 2012 until 25 July 2012. Dannii Minogue, Brian McFadden and Kyle Sandilands returned as judges, as well as Grant Denyer as host.[1] The auditions took place from October–December 2011, and the filming of the show took place from February–March 2012.[2] Todd McKenney was a guest judge at the Melbourne auditions, in the absence of Sandilands, and the second show of the finals showdown, in the absence of McFadden. This was Minogue and McFadden's final series as judges, as they were replaced by Dawn French, Geri Halliwell and series 5 contestant Timomatic in series 7.
