|| Idol's new judge
Kyle Sandilands

THE sparks are set to fly on Australian Idol, with outspoken and unrepentant radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands joining the judging panel.

Sandilands was a vocal critic of the second series of the show. He landed the coveted role after a four-month search by producers to find a replacement for Ian 'Dicko' Dickson, who quit Idol last year.

Music entrepreneur Glenn Wheatley was understood to have been sounded out for the role but declined.

That left the door open for Channel Ten to sign Sandilands to a three-year-deal.

Australian Idol winner | IDOL: CASEY DONOVAN |

Sydney's Casey Donovan was named Australia's next Idol in an extraordinary live television event. Over three hours Australia learned who would be the nations next singing Superstar.

The show began with live performances by selected Top 30 finalists performing on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, the arrival of Anthony and Casey and included performances by the Top 12, climaxing to a nail-biting conclusion when the hosts announced that Casey Donovan is Australia's next Australian Idol.
