This Guy’s got talent with “Australiana” and horses

FANS of performer Guy McLean, who appeared at this year's Warwick Rodeo, will have another chance to see his amazing horse-whisperer routine, this time on television.

Mr McLean and his "performance horses" have auditioned for Channel 9's Australia's Got Talent, which will return to television next year after it was axed in 2013.

The popular entertainer said he was excited about the opportunity to showcase some real "Australiana".

"To be on television and to showcase my horses to the Australian public has always been a bit of a dream," he said.

"I had to go in there and really show the judges what I've got.

"To get into the mainstream would be great for the horses and myself."

Mr McLean said he drew inspiration from his performance at this year's Warwick Rodeo.

"It was one of the best weekends I've ever had," he said.

"Getting the respect of the Warwick audience was really special.

"I hope that on the show I can do a good job of representing the Australian stockman."

Australia's Got Talent is set to be broadcast to more than two million people but that won't daunt the entertainer.

"I've probably performed in front of five-to-10 million over the years both here and in America," he said. "If I wasn't prepared to perform live by now I'd be in trouble."

While Mr McLean must remain tight-lipped about his audition, he said he was proud of his team of horses.

"All four horses were incredible, by the end I could walk away knowing I couldn't ask for any more," he said. "There was a tear in my eye by the end."

Kelly Osbourne, Ian "Dicko" Dickson, Sophie Monk and Eddie Perfect make up the new-look panel of judges alongside new host Dave Hughes.
