It was last on our TV screens more than a decade ago but finally, aspiring Australian singers will get a chance to join the likes of Guy Sebastian and Stan Walker as the next Australian Idol - including one young hopeful from Kununurra. Normally the home of AFL, Optus Stadium became the home of Idol auditions with WA hopefuls lining up on October 6 for their chance to make it to the next round. Among the crowds hoping to impress superstar judges Kyle Sandilands, Amy Shark, Meghan Trainor and Harry Connick Jr. was Kununurra local Georgia Miller. The proud First Nations’ artist hopes she can do well in the competition like her idol Jessica Mauboy, and become the first West Australian ever to win the competition. “I’ve always watched the other shows like The Voice and X Factor, and my friends would say, ‘oh you should go on’ and I said, if Australian Idol comes back I will. And then fair enough it did,” Miller said. The 23-year-old diamond miner was supported by her friend Peter Griffiths at the auditions. “I’m proud of her, I’ve seen her grown up. I’m over the moon, she’s my little lamington and now she’s stepping up into the game,” Griffiths said. Australian Idol is set to return to Channel Seven in 2023, a premiere date has not been revealed.
