Details about Winners of Australian Idol
Season 1: Guy Sebastian
There is no doubting that Guy Sebastian has accomplished tremendous things, regardless of whether you are a staunch supporter of Guy or believe Shannon “Nollsy” Noll was wrongfully denied the championship. He has achieved no fewer than 51 platinum certifications since he was named the inaugural Australian Idol, performed at Eurovision, and won four ARIA awards.
He recently finished judging the most recent season of The X Factor: Next Generation. His most recent smash hit was “Battle Scars” with Lupe Fiasco in 2012. He has two sons and is married to the stunning Jules Sebastian.
Season 2: Casey Donovan
The youngest act to accomplish so was Casey Donovan, who at 16 won the second season of American Idol. She made the decision to go independent and build a solo career after Idol. She was at the time one of Australia’s most promising native performers, but she was unable to match Sebastian’s chart success.
Donovan returned to music in 2010, releasing two singles, “Big, Beautiful And Sexy” and “Last Regret,” which received commercial airplay but little else. Donovan was cast as Cynthia in the 2010 production of The Sapphires.
Season 3: Kate DeAraugo
Unfortunately, Kate DeAraugo is not one of the Idol success stories. Her debut album debuted at number 10 on the ARIA charts and spent eight weeks in the top 50. Despite earning multiple platinum records, the group Young Divas split in 2008 after she joined.
DeAraugo battled her weight in a very public way, which was made worse by tabloids and glitzy publications. She also battled depression and a serious drug addiction. She was detained and accused of driving under the influence last year, and reports suggest that she has been working to turn her life around.
Season 4: Damien Leith
In the 10 years that have passed, Damien Leith has built a very successful career after defeating the lovely Jess Mauboy for the top spot that year.
He is a master of all crafts who has authored two novels, released eight albums, earned seven platinum certifications, and is presently on tour to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his live CD The Winner’s Journey. For those of you who recall the debate around that, he is now a citizen of Australia and a regular on the regional concert circuit.
Season 5: Natalie Gauci
An additional victor who never quite progressed as far as the runner-up. In Season 5, Natalie defeated Matt Corby, and she has been quite quiet since since. In 2009, she parted ways with Sony and co-founded the electro-pop duo Tune In Tokyo with producer Paul Brandoli. Similar to DeAraugo, she engaged in drug use following her 15 minutes of fame.
Gauci also made an attempt at acting, making a brief appearance in the 2011 movie Big Mamma’s Boy. Her most recent CD, a jazz work about her life and divorce, was released in 2012. She has travelled extensively over Europe and now resides in London, where she was known as Nellie Bell up until a year ago.
Season 6: Wes Carr
Since the release of The Way The World Looks, his second album for Sony, in 2009, Wes Carr has mostly disappeared from the public eye. In 2011, he parted ways with the label and became independent. The following year, he went by the alias Buffalo Tales and released an EP titled Blood & Bone.
Carr released the song “Amsterdam” off his debut Buffalo Tales album, but it failed to reach the top 40. However, after Sia commended it on Twitter, his cover of Rihanna’s Diamonds gained some recognition.
Season 7: Stan Walker
At least in New Zealand, Stan Walker is another Idol success story who, like Sebastian, has gone on to release hit singles and serve as a judge on The X Factor. He is a mainstay of the New Zealand music scene and has dabbled in acting, appearing in the Kiwi movies Born To Dance and Mount Zion.
He served as the opening act for Beyoncé’s gigs in Auckland and Perth of her Mrs. Carter Show tour in 2013 as well as Nicki Minaj’s Australian Pink Friday tour in 2012.
