Harry Connick Jr goes back to school

Tonight, on Australian Idol, all-star judges continued their nation-wide tour to uncover the nation’s next singing superstar on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Ambitious Perth theatre performer, 24-year-old Bec Voysey, set out to prove she belongs on stage with an acapella version of Skinny Love by Bon Iver, as covered by Birdie. The judges agreed it was a stellar performance and gave her the first Golden Ticket of the night.

Melbourne’s Harry Hayden impressed the judges with his version of I Am Changing by Idol’s own Jennifer Hudson. Meghan and Kyle told Harry he could win the competition, and he was awarded a Golden Ticket too.

Performing Johnny Cash’s Ring Of Fire with flaming pink hair, 19-year-old Anya Hynninen gave Meghan “Adele” vibes and landed herself a place in the Top 50.

Next up, Harry Connick Jnr went back to school in small-town Scone, NSW, to audition 18-year-old Hamish Guiana in his music classroom. Taking on Niall Horan’s This Town, Hamish was thrilled to discover he had secured a spot in the Top 50.

Later, Tully Wishart, the son of X-Factor runner-up Andrew Wishart, was looking to forge his own path in the music industry. Using his raspy voice to give a grungy take on The Black Key’s Lonely Boy, Tully wasted no time in wowing the judges and made it to the next round of the competition.
