Nicole, who has sold 60 million albums as the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls and 16 million records as a solo artist, arrives in Australia to start filming this month. The beloved singer has appeared as a judge on several television shows, including an American acapella competition known as, The Sing Off, along with the British and U.S. versions of The X Factor. With lots of experience under her belt, Nicole says she's excited to meet Australia's hidden talents.
“It’s really wonderful to see every day people come on a stage and show their talent,” Nicole said.
“These contestants can be your next-door neighbour or your grade school teacher – it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from. The show reminds everyone they too can follow their dreams and honour their gifts – even if they’ve kept them hidden."
The winner of the 2019 season of Australia’s Got Talent will take home $100,000 in prize money.
