I’ve been having the time of my life hosting this show you guys!

When I was approached to be part of the show I was hesitant in the beginning because I was unsure if it was the right role for me and also to be honest if I really wanted to do it. But when I met with the team at Fremantle (who are also the people who produced Australian Idol & kickstarted my career) - and they showed me their vision and what the hosting role on this particular show entailed…I WAS IN! It is SO me! They really just wanted me to be myself and that is all I’ve done!

Through auditions I laughed, I cried, I danced like an idiot side stage, I dressed up like a kangaroo and twerked on stage, I held up parents who were crying their faces off while their kid was up there killing it, I tried to help those who were nervous and gave advice when people wanted it….all in all I have been having SO MUCH FUN!

Not only have I enjoyed witnessing some mind-blowing talent - I have also LOVED working with the amazing team that makes this show happen, and have made some great friends in the production team as well as the judges! This show has been a huge undertaking for everyone involved and I really want to shout out to my entire team for helping me feel AMAZING every time I walk out on that stage - my Stylist Lara Lupish who I have worked with for so long and she knows me so well and dresses my body so well - and my long time friend and Hair & Make Up artist Dale Dorning who is an absolute GUN and makes me feel like a million dollars every time I step on to that stage! Also my producers, Joe, Bethan and Gemma and also Digby & Jono from Fremantle who have all made me feel SO confident and comfortable in this crazy chaotic world!

I hope you guys are enjoying the show as much as I have been loving being part of it!!! Keep watching and sharing the love for the show!

Love, Ricki-Lee xxx
