REVEALED: The Judging panel for Longford's Next Superstar

Janice Gibney, Jimmy Connell and Jessica Thompson

As the public polls prepare to close at midnight tomorrow and we move one step closer to finding out which of our five finalists will be named Longford's Next Superstar, it's time to reveal our expert judging panel who will combine their scores with the public votes to select our big winner.

The three judges who will help to decide the overall winner of Longford's Next Superstar are:

  • Backstage Theatre's Janice Gibney
  • Jimmy's Jests' Jimmy Connell
  • Longford Leader Reporter, Jessica Thompson

The public polls count for 50% of the overall score for each finalist, with the other 50% coming from the judges' scores.

Once the polls close tomorrow at midnight, our three judges will set about scoring the five contestants and the winner will be announced next week.
