    Ian "Dicko" Dickson - Judge

    A 20-year record industry veteran, Ian "Dicko" Dickson has taken the Australian television audience by storm as the bawdy judge on "Australian Idol."

    Originally hailing from England, Dickson began his career as a press and promotions manager at the independent label Creation Records, responsible for groups such as the Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and, most famously, Oasis. Dickson moved on to Sony Music UK, where he served as the press officer for artists including LL Cool J, Midnight Oil and Michael Bolton, and later to the Epic Label as a marketing executive for Pearl Jam, Ozzy Osbourne and Celine Dion, among others.

    After stints as director of international for both Sony UK and AM Records, Dickson was appointed vice president of international at BMG UK Group. While in this position, Dickson moved to Australia to tackle the role of marketing general manager for BMG Australia. This move pointed Dickson's already colorful career down a new path, allowing him to emerge from behind the scenes and serve as an on-air judge on the hit series "Australian Idol."

    His other television work includes appearing in the Australian version of "Dancing With the Stars" and hosting "Celebrity Survivor" and "My Restaurant Rules." He has garnered awards such as "Fave Old Fart" and "Fave Meanie" from Nickelodeon in Australia.

    Dickson is a partner of talent management firm Watercooler Talent and lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife, Mel, and their daughters, Esme and Edie.

    What is this compulsive need of Uncle Nigel's to constantly push people from his other international properties on us hapless Americans? Cat Deely was bad enough...
