Just randomly googled Australian Idol and found this. shocked.gif

Former Australian Idol judge Jay Dee Springbett found dead

QUOTE
Former Australian Idol judge Jay Dee Springbett has been found dead at his home in Sydney.

The 36-year-old was discovered after paramedics were called to reports of a suspected heart attack.

He was found unconscious in his apartment in eastern Sydney about 3.30pm yesterday, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

His death is not being treated as suspicious by New South Wales police.

Sony boss Denis Handlin told a local radio show that he became concerned for Springbett's welfare when he failed to answer his phone.

He said: 'We thought we better let the police know because it's really not like him and then of course they went to his residence and found him.'

'It's just so difficult coming to terms with it.'

Springbett was the Senior Director of A&R for Sony Records, and was experienced developing talent in the UK and Australia after 2004.

Former Australian idol host Andrew Gunsberg wrote of his shock on Twitter. He said: 'I'm completely sidelined by the news of Jay Dee Springbett's death. 'My deepest thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.'

English-born Springbett shot to fame when he took over from Kyle Sandilands as judge on the talent show in 2009.

On his MySpace page, Springbett describes music as the spirit of life and wrote: 'Surprise me people!! Anyone need not apply, no one who wants to be a popstar or famous should even bother submitting material.'

He has worked with big names including Rogue Traders, Jessica Mauboy, Karnivool, and Cassie Davis among others.

A spokesman for Channel Ten sent their condolences to Springbett's family and said in a statement: 'Jay Dee was an asset to the final season of Australian Idol, we feel honoured to have worked with him.'

Has two children with his partner, fashion publicist Louisa McCole.


I didn't care for him at idol, but that's sad at such a young age! sad.gif Condolences to his family.

I saw this on the news the other night. sad.gif I also read an article today that said he may have had a history of heart problems which may have contributed to his death. Condolences to his family, especially his two young daughters sad.gif
