It's the show that made household names out of Bonnie Anderson, Justice Crew and Jack Vidgen, and now Australia's Got Talent is back for 2022.
The 10th season of the popular reality TV show comes after production was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While it's been a long wait for dedicated AGT fans, it can only mean there'll be no shortage of fresh Aussie talent ready to blow our minds when it hits screens.
This year's version of the show features a world-first twist, as Aussie acts will go up against some of the best Got Talent favourites from around the world in order to win AGT.
