With the new season of Australia’s Got Talent just about to kick off, Aussie’s have all been wondering who the judges for this season will be.

Well, after much anticipation, they have announced (and surprised us) that Neil Patrick Harris will be making a trip down under to star as one of the judges for this season!

You may know him for his role as Barney on ‘How I Met Your Mother’, but what you might not know is that Harris is an award-winning star of the stage, which means he will be bringing invaluable advice to the people of Australia (how exciting)!

“I’m a performer who has taken many stages through the, well, many stages of my career – be it acting, singing, dancing, hosting, juggling, magic-ing, even breathing fire – and I have developed enormous respect for anyone with the courage to pursue their talents and passions at any level, let alone televised on a national stage,” he said in a statement.

The announcement also included “a world-first twist to the popular series in which Aussie acts will take on some of the best Got Talent champions from around the globe.”


Neil Patrick Harris will be joining three other judges, including Britain & America’s Got Talent Royalty Alesha Dixon and our very own Shane Jacobson, Kate Ritchie, & hosted by the stunning Ricky Lee.

While we don’t know the premiere date just yet, we do know they are looking for people to join the live audience for FREE, so if you want your chance to be as close to Neil Patrick Harris, here’s your shot!
