So Dannii Minogue is quitting The X-Factor because it clashes with her role as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent. But realistically, how long can a series of Australia’s Got Talent take to film? Any Aussie who’s got a talent seems to be working over here!

And what sort of novelty acts would you have in Australia – a bloke that only downs soft drinks?

AC/DC front man Brian Johnson has expressed his belief that reality shows often hinder the careers of aspiring musicians. After more than 30 years as the hard rock band’s lead singer, Johnson said that competing on reality series such as American Idol only serves to give artists a false sense of acclaim. Keith Richards has revealed that he is eager to start making a new Rolling Stones record. When asked about the possibility of new Rolling Stones material, he commented: ‘I’m trying to nail them down, but I don’t want to crucify them.’

Pink Floyd legend David Gilmour has ruled out any more band reunions following the three remaining members appearing on stage at Roger Waters’ gig at London’s O2.

A posting on his official blog read: ‘I should also remind you that tonight is most definitely a one-off. David is not repeating his special guest performance at a later occasion, I’m sorry to disappoint those of you with fingers crossed and tickets for later shows.’ Beyonce has reportedly completed 72 tracks for her upcoming album. The singer, who recently announced that the new record will be called 4, is said to have ‘stunned’ staff at her record label Columbia with the volume of finished material. They will now have to decide on a final track listing. Did you watch Jedward dancing on Eurovision?

I’ve never seen a set of twins so out of synch! Catch Steve Power At Breakfast, Monday To Friday 05.30-09.00 on Wave 105.
