Free-to-air television’s newest singing show sports a couple of familiar faces with two judges hailing from the Illawarra.
Tullimbar music teacher Glenn Whitehall and Albion Park vocal teacher Dylan Wright both appear on All Together Now, airing on Prime7.
Both are part of the panel of 100 which each singing contestant needs to impress to get a spot in the grand final.
Whitehall said it wasn’t like the usual talent shows across the networks but more like a “karaoke party”.
“We’re not looking for a technically perfect singer I think we’re looking for really enthusiastic performers, people who are just comfortable enough to get out on stage and shed their skin,” he said.
At the conclusion of each episode, the act with the highest votes will join other heat winners in the Grand Final line-up – their eyes on the $100,000 cash prize.
Other judges on the panel include Ronan Keating, Choirboys frontman Mark Gable, music icon Rhonda Burchmore, X Factor 2015 stars Jess & Matt plus Kylie impersonator Lucy Holmes.
The program was filmed earlier in the year and is expected to run over a number of weeks.
“I’ve loved every minute of it,” Wright said. “Not only have I learnt so much from the other panelists on the show, but I learnt about myself as an artist and as an industry professional.”
