Australian Idol begins on a ‘Top’ note 


The Australian Idol audition tour is about to begin and to kick things off on a high note the TV program is starting in the Top End.

Auditions will be held on Sunday 22 March between 10am – 5pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 32 Mitchell Street, Darwin.

Executive Producer for the show, Greg Beness said he believed there was a “strong creative music community in the Territory” and judging by past successes, including Darwin’s Jessica Mauboy who was runner-up in the fourth Australian Idol competition in 2006, Mr Beness said he couldn’t wait to see what treasures the Territory would treat the team to this year.

“It would be terrific if we had someone representing the Northern Territory in the finals this year, so come on all you singer/musicians out there, step up and give it a go,” Mr Beness said.
