Danni Minogue replaces Mel B on Australian X Factor. Gerri Halliwell has been named as a possible replacement judge on AGT since Mel B has been legally barred from working on this show.

Mel B will not be appearing on Australia's Got Talent on the rival network. Channel 7 won their injunction against Mel B appearing on the other channel. Even though she must abide by her contract with Channel 7, they will not be using her as a judge on X Factor this year, although they may give her a limited role on the program. There has been no word on Australia's Dancing with the Stars, a program she has cohosted for the last 2 years on Channel 7. We don't even know if there will be DWTS this year.

Mel might not make it to Australia to work in 2013 (well not with her whole family) as Eddie Murphy, the father of her second child will not sign paperwork for his child to apply for an Australian visa (according to testimony given by Mel's husband). I don't think Mel would leave part of her family behind in the US for several months for work.

A bit of controversy at the moment. The network Mel B worked for in 2012 has placed a court injunction on her preventing her from appearing on AGT on the other network until 2014. They are saying she will be in breach of contract if she appears on any other network for the duration of 2013. The legal arguements are continuing.

Mel B will be returning to Australia this year, but not to X Factor. She has signed to another TV network and will be a judge on Australia's Got Talent. This show used to be on the same TV network as X Factor with Danni Minogue as one of the judges, but the show was dumped and picked up by another station so they didn't want any of the former judges. Apparently she has also been signed up for America's Got Talent so she is keeping to the same franchise.

The Collective have been knocked out of the grand final, so its between Jason Owen and the favourite, Samantha Jade (who looks a little like Kylie Minogue)

The grand final show was great. Each of the mentors aligned with their grand finalists went to their home towns for a visit and concert. Mel B went back with her singer Jason Owen to his home town of Albert, which only has 12 residents; however the population was boosted with fans who turned up to greet Jason and Mel from surrounding districts. Mel was like a proud mother hen. They went to the local police station and thye police handcuffed her for fun, but realised that the keys were not in town; they were in Parkes, which is about 70-80km away. She had to wait, but she was a good sport about it.

The Collective have made it into the grand final for next week.
Elton John sang 2 songs.
Mel B has not shown any signs of rudeness to any contestant to date, but Mel and the other female judge, Natalie, are still irritating to each other.
I suppose its due to the show being so near to the end and only having the best of the contestants left has meant that Mel hasn't seen anything really bad performance wise. She has really been encouraging to all the remaining contestants the last few weeks.

The Aussie boy band 'The Collective" is in the final 4. That's the group that my niece's school friend is in. Elton John will be in Australia next week and guest star on the result show.

Mel has been really nice and encouraging in the last few weeks. Last night the 14 year old contestant, Shiane, was eliminated. It was really sad, but all the judges were very supportive of her. The producers dropped the minimum age limit from 16 to 14 for 2012 and Shiane got as far as the top 5.
Here is Shiane's audition. It was kind of like a "Susan Boyle moment".

Mel has been a little irritating since her rising star was given the boot for his bad behaviour on Twitter. He was replaced by one of the contestants who just missed out on a place for Mel's final 3 after the home visits. Mel's been a little frustrated by trying to get the replacement up to speed for tbe live performances, having only 1-2 days to prepare for his first live performance. Mel seems to be not getting on with the other female judge, so there was some on air tension

One of the contestants Mel was mentoring got through to the first live performance and was safe, but then did something really stupid and was sacked for inappropriate behaviour while using social media. I am glad the producers took a stand and sent a clear message about the expected behaviour of contestants.

My niece's friend was given the thumbs down at the end of boot camp , but as a twist, was selected to be part of an X Factor Australian made boy band in the footsteps of One Direction. The band has been named the Collective. They went to the UK and were mentored by One Direction and Ronan Keating who is another judge here.

He has got his final high school exams starting in just over 2 weeks, so he us going to be busy combining rehearsals, the live performances, study and exams. I believe he is quite a good student and my niece has said that he has been helping another contestant who is 14 with her home work.
