    Australian Idol First Look: Amy Reeves blows judges away

    Australian Idol First Look: Amy Reeves blows judges away

    The brand new season of Australian Idol returns on Monday, January 29 on Channel 7 and 7plus, with judges Kyle Sandilands, Amy Shark and Marcia Hines searching for the next generation of singing sensation. 

    Contestant Amy Reeves, 24, got her first taste of performing as a child. The self-described “little diva” grabbed hold of her dream and never let it go.

    Amy said: “I come from a really massive Filipino family. The first time I performed I was four years old, and I just refused to get off the stage.”

    Amy was raised in the small coastal town of Broome, WA, and she says her ambition won’t be contained by borders.

    “Broome is a world away from where I’m going. When it all started that seemed a world away too.

    “I don’t know what will happen after those two minutes. I don’t know which path my future is headed.”

    Her Australian Idol audition leaves Amy Shark speechless before Kyle interjects: “I think the word you’re looking for is f****g amazing. There is no reason you can’t win this competition.”

    The new season promises a slew of new twists and turns, building on the reinvigorated look and feel of last year’s season. 

    Touted as the toughest season of Idol ever by Seven’s head of entertainment, Majella Hay, the new season will feature a tighter format, having only a top 30 rather than a top 50 as seen with last season. 

    Hay explains that even though there will be more episodes in the new season, getting a golden ticket into the top 30 will be harder.

    “The 30 who make it into that group have got to work harder to get there, and have to impress our judges to get that golden ticket,” she said.

    “Because of our new format, we can slightly shorten the audition run of getting the people through the door to see who has the potential to be an idol.

    “There will be people who viewers will love from the get-go in the top 30, and they will follow just those 30 voices as they start their journey to become an Australian Idol.”

    Australian Idol returns on Monday, January 29 2024 on Channel 7 and 7plus.
