Channel 7 wins bid to block Mel B from judging on Australia's Got Talent

Australias Got TalentAcross the ditch, a battle between Channel 7 and Channel 9 has resulted in former Spice Girl Melanie Brown (Mel B) being left without a job after Seven won its bid to block her from being a judge on Nine’s Australia’s Got Talent.

Brown, who was previously an X Factor Australia judge with Seven, defected to Nine to take up a role on Australia’s Got Talent.

However, Seven went to the Supreme Court to deny her from appearing on a rival network, citing the fact that she had agreed that Seven would be the only network she appeared on until 2014.

The three other judges on Australia’s Got Talent are Kyle Sandilands, Dawn French and Tim Omaji. Fellow Spice Girl Geri Halliwell is rumoured to be a possible replacement.
