James Mathison and Osher Günsberg were two of the country's biggest stars when they joined forces to host Australian Idol in 2003.

And the duo served serious dad energy on Tuesday when they reunited on Studio 10 to discuss the talent show's return to television next year.

Osher said that talent shows these days are all about the contestants' stories.

'I still think someone like Guy [Sebastian] or Shannon [Noll] could win a new series of Idol. But it has got to be about the singer; it can't be about the judges,' he added.

'When you think about the access people have to artists, it's in their hands. So they need to know the [back]story to get involved.'
