Television and Theatre

2020 saw Dannii return to Australian screens for Season 2 of the worldwide phenomenon and mystery singing show, The Masked Singer Australia. The show features celebrity contestants who perform behind bizarre disguises, with the panel and audience trying to determine, from the singing performance and clues provided to them, who is behind the mask. A ‘bonkers’ entertainment show, The Masked Singer Australia premiered on Network Ten reaching a national audience of more than 3 million viewers over its first two nights on air in 2019. Season 2 also rated exceptionally, often being the #1 entertainment show of the night.  ‘Inspector’ Minogue, as she has been dubbed, topped the panel again for the most amount of correct celebrity guesses.

Dannii can also be currently seen co-hosting the Australian version of Netflix’s major reality competition series, ‘Ultimate Beastmaster’, alongside former rugby player Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins. The series launched globally on Netflix in August 2018 and is the first competition show greenlit by Netflix where hosts from each of the participating countries commentate alongside one another so that each territory sees a localized version of the show. The series follows competitors along a difficult obstacle course; the winners from each episode compete in a grand final each season. Dannii describes the show as a sporty version of The Eurovision Song Contest, which, of course, she can relate to. Netflix announced Dannii’s involvement in ‘Ultimate Beastmaster’, in true Minogue style, as part of the Netflix Mardi Gras Float in the 2018 Mardi Gras Parade, alongside Hollywood stars from ‘Orange is the New Black’, ‘13 Reasons Why’ and ‘Mindhunter’.

In 2018, Dannii hosted Network Seven’s brand new series, ‘Dance Boss’. The new format saw teams of workers from the same workplace or profession dance-off to win a cash prize of $100,000. Dance has been a constant force in Dannii’s life from her Young Talent Time days to her chart topping music career. Strutting her stuff is in Dannii’s DNA! Dannii is also executive producer on Dance Boss, this exciting new role is a culmination of her many years experience – in front of and behind the camera – since her childhood.

Dannii’s television judging and hosting roles on Australian and UK television have taken up much of her career space for the last decade, and audiences wholeheartedly embrace her. She has starred in international formats including ‘The X Factor UK’, ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, ‘Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model’ and ‘The X Factor Australia’.  Dannii first stepped into the television judge’s chair in 2007, launching Australia’s Got Talent. She completed six series (2007-2012) of AGT and held the title as the only original judge while the show was on Seven Network. Dannii’s long-standing relationship with the Seven Network continued when she was offered the role of judge on The X Factor Australia where she completed three seasons (2013-2015). This was Dannii’s seventh series as a judge on The X Factor, having also been a judge for four years in the UK (2007-2010). The same year as her debut on Australia’s Got Talent, her popularity and natural ability in the judge’s seat saw Dannii take on the role of judge and mentor on The X Factor UK, Britain’s highest rating television show. During these years, Dannii worked in both territories across the world in these major format shows. After completing four consecutive series with ITV in the UK, alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole, Dannii decided 2010 was to be her final series.
