LMFAO star Redfoo thrilled with The X Factor role

Lmfao frontman Redfoo has become the latest star to embark on a career in reality TV Down Under after signing up as a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor.

The singer, who is the son of music mogul Berry Gordy, is currently on hiatus from LMFAO and is now relaunching himself as a small screen star Down Under.

He has joined the panel of Australia's The X Factor alongside Irish singer Ronan Keating and Aussie stars Dannii Minogue and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

Redfoo says of the appointment, "I'm excited because I love music and I love singing and I've got an opinion."

Production on the series started in Sydney over the weekend (beg20-21Apr13), but singer/actress Bassingthwaighte will have to miss the first few weeks of filming as she prepares to give birth to her second child.

Redfoo has replaced singer Guy Sebastian on the panel, while Minogue has been recruited to fill the slot vacated by British pop star Melanie Brown.
