Prepare to feel approximately a thousand years old.
It’s been 11 whole years since Nathan Foley appeared on Hi-5, strumming his guitar in insanely bright coordinated outfits.
On Monday night, the former children’s musical group member is set to return to our screens as a contestant on The Voice Australia 2019, and we can’t imagine he’ll be singing about happy monsters or remembering to wash your hands after you’ve been to the toilet.
Watch his audition for The Voice below. Post continues after video.
So what has Nathan, now 39, been up to over the past decade?
A member of the original Hi-5 lineup from 1999 to 2008, Nathan recently discussed his departure from the popular children’s program with New Idea.
“It was a beautiful, beautiful job,” he told the publication, revealing he was just 18 when he first signed on.
“I left Hi-5 because I just felt like it was my time. Ten years I put in – I put in all the hard yards.
“I got to the point where I was just like, you know what, I kind of missed doing my solo shows and having control of my own destiny.”

Throwback .. Meeting Hugh Jackman. I was filming my last series of Hi-5 at fox studios in Sydney while he was filming the movie “Australia” next door. I was outside our studio learning my lines when he came past on his electric scooter to say hello. He said “Hi Nathan, how are you? im a big fan, “what are you reading there”. I gave him my script and he said it was a lot to learn. I stood there in disbelief for a moment but he was such a down to earth cool bloke. He asked if he, his wife and Baz Luhrmann could come by to watch us film. Ofcoarse I said yes! 1 week later they all came by to watch us film. It’s a great thing to meet such a superstar that is grounded and humble. A great memory. #hughjackman #nathanfoley #instapic #instagood #love #passion #instagram #instalike #instadaily #travel #travelphotography #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #singer #musician #photographer #photography #gopro #insta #instagramers #hollywood #hi-5
