Ronan Keating to lead judging panel on All Together Now

The singing show is bringing big talent back to screens.

By TV Week team
Former The X-Factor judge Ronan Keating is back! And he's doing what he does best – acting as a voice coach and judge on Aussie screens.
The Irish singer will lead the 100-strong panel of judges on Channel Seven's upcoming talent show, All Together Now. And he predicts the show will captivate the country.
"I can't want to get back to Sydney and get back on TV down there," Ronan, 41, tells The Daily Telegraph.
"I love the way people all across Australia get involved in shows like this and I think All Together Now has the ability to captivate the nation."
Ronan Keating will lead the judging panel.
All Together Now takes its format and name from Geri Halliwell-fronted UK iteration. It's a refreshing revamp of the traditional talent competition.
"Forget what you think you know about talent shows, because if the crowd's not singing, you're not winning!" the casting call reads.
One hundred entertainment industry figures, including singers and agents, make up the judging panel.
They are encouraged to sing along to the contestants' performances, whose scores are then based on the amount of engagement they receive from the panel.
"[It's] a family entertainment show packed full of great music with 100 people singing and dancing along to some amazing live performances — it just sounds epic and I want to be part of it," Ronan enthuses.
"As any great captain would, I'll be there to support, encourage, motivate, advise, laugh and cry, as long as the 100 see if they have what it takes to come out on top."
Julia Zemiro will host the show.
Ronan joins ex-SBS Eurovision host, Julia Zemiro. The comedy queen will host All Together Now and says we can expect some drama-free fun.
"This is the singing show we've all been waiting for," Julia, 50, declares.
"No journeys. No long stories. Just great singing."
All Together Now is produced by Endemol Shine and is predicted to screen later this year. The winner will take home a $100,000 cash prize.
