This week, we’ve received a good indication that our beloved X Factor Australia may be no more.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Sebastian revealed that he will no longer be a judge on the show, he also admitted that he ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if the show got axed.

“I think the speculation is probably fairly accurate. It was a disappointing year.”

“X factor was always going to be a very short thing for me. I wasn’t going to do last year, and it came back that it was only a very short run, so I did it.”

Our four judges (and lovely host, of course) have finally been united! Are you loving the first live show so far? #xfactorau

Last year, 751,000 tuned it to see Isaiah Firebrace take out the top gong, compared to the 1.045 million viewers who saw the winner crowned in 2015.


No word whether Iggy Azalea’s potential return, should the show come back for another season, influenced Guy’s decision.
