Australian Idol on Channel 7 – Broome star cleans up. Search for Australian Idol sweeps the nation.

Judges Kyle Sandilands, Amy Shark and Marcia Hines are looking for the next generation of singing sensationwhen Australia’s biggest star-making competition, Australian Idol, returns Monday, 29 January on Channel 7 and 7plus

For some contestants, Australian Idol is bigger than a dream, it’s a calling.

Amy Reeves, 24, got her first taste of performing as a child. The self-described “little diva” grabbed hold of her dream and never let go.

Amy shares: “I come from a really massive Filipino family. The first time I performed I was four years old, and I just refused to get off the stage.”

Raised in the small coastal town of Broome, WA, Amy’s ambition can’t be contained by borders: “Broome is a world away from where I’m going. When it all started that seemed a world away too.

“I don’t know what will happen after those two minutes. I don’t know which path my future is headed.”

Amy’s Australian Idol audition leaves Amy speechless before Kyle interjects: “I think the word you’re looking for is f*****g amazing. There is no reason you can’t win this competition.”

A global success since 2001, the Idol franchise has launched the careers of many multi-award-winning artists, including Aussies Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Matt Corby, Shannon Noll, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Anthony Callea, Stan Walker, Casey Donovan and Courtney Act. International music icons Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lambert also launched their brilliant careers on the Idol stage.
