'1 800 BONE' hitmaker Iggy Azalea will replace Dannii Minogue on this year's X Factor Australia judging panel, it's been announced.
Here's the tweet that told the world the glorious news:

Iggy also released a statement, which went a lot like this: “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."
These quotes to the Australian Daily Telegraph are a little more interesting.
“I really didn’t picture myself being a judge on any kind of television show but I think that actually this could be a good fit for me so I said yes,” she mused.
Warming to the 'had nothing better to do' theme, she added:
“Initially I didn’t know but then I thought it would be good to come back to Australia and have an opportunity to spend some time there and obviously to see my family, who live in Sydney. So I think it will be a good situation for multiple reasons. I’m really excited and I don’t really know what to expect.”
The series is expected to air at some point after the Olympics.
