Growing up in Burpengary, Natasha Rose has always found comfort in music, which lead her to audition for Australian Idol.
Not only did Natasha blow the judges away during her audition, but she was one of 30 contestants to receive a golden ticket and progress to the next stage of the competition, alongside fellow Moreton Bay resident, Kiani Smith.
“My family all sing together each night, a tradition that has happened ever since I was born,” Natasha says.
“I started writing poems and songs when I was 10 and it’s been my outlet ever since. I always sought a stage, as I loved entertaining people and making them smile.
“As I grew older, this came in the form of theatre performances, local competitions and now, regular gigs. I truly love everything about being an artist, the creativity, performing, learning new songs and most of all the amazing people I meet.”
Natasha says that auditioning for Australian Idol was one of the most memorable experiences.
“Auditioning for Australian Idol was one of the most nerve wracking, but exciting and incredible experiences I’ve ever had,” Natasha says.
“Everyone has been super nice though, especially the hosts and the producers which made it feel a lot easier. I had so much fun, singing in front of the judges and it is really nice to think they see something special in me.
“There’s so much talent this year and to have been chosen as one of the 30 golden ticket recipients is honestly such an honour. I can’t wait to keep working and learning, so I can continue to grow as an artist.”
This week, the Australian Idol Top 30 will become 21, as the contestants enter the next phase of the competition.
Judges Marcia Hines, Kyle Sandilands and Amy Shark will task the remaining contestants with a series of epic challenges to see who comes out on top.
Contestants will be asked to perform in front of a live audience – some for the very first time.
You can watch Natasha’s audition here.
