An Idol favourite returns as the Top 12 are decided

Australia’s Top 12 will be decided during an unmissable week of Australian Idol on Channel 7 and 7plus as an iconic Idol competition moment makes a welcome return. 

The legendary “touchdown” returns to the Idol stage for the first time in over a decade. Epic performances earning a touchdown from a judge will immediately place the performer in the Top 12.   

The best performers will sing for their lives in front of the biggest live audience Idol has ever seen as the competition inches closer to Australia choosing their next Idol. 

“This is when the competition really starts,” says judge Harry Connick Jr. Fellow judge Kyle Sandilands has labelled the upcoming performances “sensational”. 

The Top 12 will feature in the live performance round of the competition, with Australian audiences voting each week to decide who will be crowned the next Australian Idol. The winner will receive a recording contract with industry giant Sony Music and $100,000 in prize money.

Australian Idol is hosted by multi-platinum selling, ARIA Award-nominated singer-songwriter Ricki-Lee – discovered on Australian Idol in 2004 – and internationally renowned entertainment presenter and former E! host Scott Tweedie.
