Bribie Island local, Kiani Smith will face a live elimination round tonight on Australian Idol.

Kiani’s first audition on Australian Idol aired on February 6, where she gracefully entered the next round of the competition.

The singer then earned her golden ticket shortly after and made it through to the Top 12, becoming the youngest contestant on the show at 17 years old.

Making it through to the Top 10 after performing Cheap Thrills by Sia, Kiani will face a live elimination round tonight.

On Monday night, Kiani performed Tainted Love by Soft Cell, which is the performance the public will vote on.

Going from strength to strength

Kiani first started writing music and performing at the age of seven.

The star began gigging two years later up and down the east coast of Australia.

Kiani's musical journey first saw her enter local competitions and perform on stages across Moreton Bay.

When she was 13, she began working with Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism where she took the stage at an Australia Day event at Bribie.

Since then, she has performed at several large scale community events, including Moreton Bay Food and Wine Festival, Redcliffe KiteFest and Wamuran F.A.M Fest, to name a few.

How to vote

You can vote for the young performer to advance to the next round by texting ‘Kiani’ to 0457 500 700. 

Voting is unlimited and standard text message rates apply. Voting closes on March 6 at 7pm.
