She was the nice judge on Oz Idol. No idea if she's still doing it - I got out of touch after the second series.

When I watched it I found most of the singers too cookie-cutter, but I was super impressed with Guy Sebastian's voice when he sang some soul classics on the show. His raspy voice reminded me a bit of Terence Trent D'arby (I'm a sucker for male singers with a bit of rasp).

Unfortunately, the material he chose - or was chosen for him - after winning the show was disappointing.
