London: Singer Natalie Imbruglia has accepted the role of a judge on the Australian version of ‘X Factor.’

Imbruglia shot to fame in the early 1990s with her role on hit Aussie soap opera Neighbours, but later left it to launch a music career, finding global stardom with ‘Torn’, and has since released four albums.

Now she has confirmed that she will be a mentor and judge on Simon Cowell`s hit singing show when its second season launches later this year, reports the Daily Express.

"Finally I can share my good news. I am off to Oz to be a judge on ‘X Factor’!! So excited. I love the show and can’t wait to get started," she wrote on her page.
