Judges for New Zealand's Got Talent have been named.
On the panel will be founding member and lead singer of UB40 Ali Campbell, supermodel Rachel Hunter and OpShop front man Jason Kerrison.
Ali Campbell said he’s been coming to New Zealand for years and has many friends here.
“I can’t wait to see some really great talent, somebody really exciting,” he said.
Our own international supermodel said she can't wait to return to New Zealand.
“I love New Zealand and I love coming home, and now I'm super-excited to get a chance to discover just how talented Kiwis are," she said.
The mother-of-two will be relocating from Los Angeles for the filming of the show, which will commence in July.
Invercargill-born Kerrison said there was an enormous amount of talent in New Zealand and he was looking forward to getting ‘stuck in’ to his judging duties.
More than 5000 acts have auditioned to take part in the New Zealand’s Got Talent heats, which will be filmed in Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland in front of live audiences and the judging panel.
New Zealand’s Got Talent will screen on TV ONE.
