Iggy Azalea has been picked to take on the next group of Australian talent as X Factor's newest judge.
“I understand what it’s like to have giant dreams and intend to help other young Australians achieve theirs by sharing my knowledge and developing their talent in collaboration with The X Factor” says Azalea.
The rapper who hails from Mullumbimby, NSW shot to fame in 2014 with her global smash Fancy (featuring Charli XCX) reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Since then Iggy has gone on to collaborate with some of the world’s biggest artists including Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Hudson.
“The X Factor is bringing Iggy home to Australia.” says Brad Lyons, Channel Seven’s Director of Production “Nobody knows what it takes to break through in today’s industry better than her."
The judges joining Iggy on The X Factor in 2016 are set to be revealed very soon.
