8.30PM: Former Hervey Bay mum of three Kristy Sellars has hit the stage with a dazzling performance in the Australia's Got Talent Grand Final.

The incredible performer showed off her pole dancing skills and talent for storytelling during the unique presentation.

The judges were effusive in their praise for the mum, who delivered her third baby and lost 20 kilos just six months before her Australia's Got Talent journey began.

"Never stop what you are doing," judge Shane Jacobson said.

"You do it with such power and yet you are happy to show us your emotions."

She has created her routines with the help of visual artist Ryan Talbot, who is from Los Angeles.

7PM: It's official! Australia's Got Talent's grand finale is underway and PhysiPole founder Kristy Sellars is flying the flag for Hervey Bay.

She may have moved to Ballarat but she still very much considers the Fraser Coast a second home.
