Joining them for the first live auditions on the popular Channel 7 show are Harry Connick Jr., Amy Shark and Kyle Sandilands.
Hines said her style of judgment was based on the type of advice she was given early in her career.
“I’ve always thought constructive criticism was the way to go because that’s how I was taught,” Hines said.
“The contestants are very brave because they’re basically being pulled out of the dark and placed in everyone’s living room.
“I know it’s not easy.”
But she warned contestants to do their homework before going on stage.
“The most important thing in anything you do is to be prepared,” she said.
“Be overly prepared.
“It can not hurt.
“If your nerves get the better of you and you can’t even think when you’re prepared, you’ll make it.”
As the competition approaches to find Australia’s next idol, the pressure of performing in front of a live audience proves too much for one contestant.
Queensland’s Noah Cookson horrified the judges when he passed out and fell to the ground.
The 19-year-old, who gave up a promising rugby career to pursue his passion for music, stunned the audience and crew as he lay motionless on stage.
It’s one of many dramatic moments in an exciting week for Australian Idol fans.
Australian Idol continues this Sunday at 7pm, then Mondays and Tuesdays at 7.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
