In 2009, Fely Irvine took over from Sun Park as a key member of the five-person strong children’s phenomenon that was Hi-5.
She was there for two years, a fixture on children’s television and a core component of a group that outlasted generations of kids easily entertained by their catchy tunes.
But some eight years later, the former children’s group star is across the world, dabbling in a very different kind of television.
Posting on Instagram this week, Irvine posted an image of herself in the audition process for American Idol.
“Cant wait to see how dorky I get in front of @lionelrichie #fangirl,” she wrote.
American Idol returned to American screens overnight after a two year hiatus with new judges and a new network.
