Remember when Australian Idol was a new and innovative show that took over your lounge room to give you that one inspiring message:
‘Out there, somewhere, somebody sings worse than you.’
Ok, there was a lot of legit talent on that show.
Most of us have forgotten about our old Idol pals, so seeing Shannon Noll pop up in memes or Guy Sebastian at Eurovision comes as a wild walk down memory lane.
Let’s revisit the good ol’ days of having one talent show on television and see where our heroes are now.
Noll, Nollsy, Nollo-mate. Shannon became an icon of the Aussie everyman with the worst facial hair to see the screen since Dame Edna forgot to pluck. Noll continues to tour Australia and belt out the hits. What about me, indeed.
There are few faces as synonymous with Aus Idol than Guy Sebastian.
Sebastian was the first winner of the show and brought us bangers such as: Angels Brought Me Here and all the other songs that you belt out at 2am in the bar but can't remember in the light of day.
Sebastian recently killed it at Eurovision in 2015 and brought home 5th place for a country that technically doesn't deserve to compete. On ya, mate.
Watch a cracking clip of Guy singing Climb Every Mountain from the original season.
Paulini or Pauline Curuenavuli graced our screens in season 1 and set our hearts on fire with her fiery attitude and smooth vocals. Paulini continues to chase her singing dreams with the release of her third studio album in May 2015.
