Seven has confirmed Australia's Got Talent will not be going ahead for 2021, due to the COVID-19 restrictions in Sydney. 

This comes after American actor Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother fame was announced as the new Australia's Got Talent judge. 

Seven secured the Hollywood A-lister as a judge, as well as Kate Ritchie, Shane Jacobson and Alesha Dixon from Britain's Got Talent. Ricki-Lee Coulter was to return as host of the show.

A Seven spokesperson has released a statement: 

“Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Sydney, we have decided to postpone production of the new season of AGT to a date to be determined.

A studio audience is a vitally important part of this much-loved show, so we have made the responsible but tough call to not go ahead for now.

A big thank you to our judges – Neil Patrick Harris, Kate Ritchie, Alesha Dixon and Shane Jacobson – and our host Ricki-Lee, and we hope to see you again soon.

“The postponement is disappointing, but there is a lot of great content to come on Seven across the rest of 2021, including Farmer Wants A Wife – which starts this Sunday – The Voice, SAS Australia, Big Brother VIP, more of our high-rating 7NEWS Spotlight specials, a special on William Tyrrell, the AFL Finals Series, Bathurst 1000 and, of course, the Tokyo Olympics.”

Fingers crossed we see it hit our screens soon!
