>Look at that! I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I’m living So different now from what it seems Now life has killed the dream
>Hey, come back here! Stay, stay, stay! Stay there! All right, thank you very much, Susan. Peirs. Without a doubt that was the biggest surprise I have had in three years on this show When you stood there with that cheeky grin and said I want to be like Elaine Paige everyone was laughing at you No one is laughing now. That was stunning, an incredible performance Ok, moment of truth. Peirs, yes or no? The biggest yes I have ever given anyone
>Thank you. Now I see why your mom and your dad put their differences aside. I came on this show–people are like why do you come on this show and I said I’m looking for an artist to inspire me And that’s exactly what you did today you inspired me, and that’s because you sat on that stage and you bared your soul to us Thank you so much. It means everything to me, means the absolute world to me. Thank you. Okay. Let’s go to a vote. Gary? James, it’s yes from me It is a massive yes from me. James, this is just a beginning. Yes. Thank you James, rightfully so do you have four yes’s. Never auditioned for nothing nothing at all. I’ve been washing cars I’ve watched thousands and thousands of cars. I’ve scrubbed so many Bf Goodrich tires I don’t want to see another piece of rubber again I’ve been up to here in bubbles, and now it’s just time to go somewhere else Let me see you put it down. Why are you laughing at Howie? I love howie. I love you, dude. Oh well, thank you. That’s very Since Little Bobby. My name is Bobby That’s pretty good Alright then. Uh what’s your name? My name is Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.. Landau, are you chewing gum? Yes, I am. I wouldn’t do that when you’re performing on this show seriously Thank you That’s better. Where are you from Landau? I’m from Logan, West Virginia Okay, and what are you going to do for us today? Well, I do all kind of music but tonight I’m just trying to follow my dream What do you do for a living? I was recently washing cars. I’m a new car detailer. All right. Well, good luck. Thank you
>That’s why I’m here. I’m personally, am a huge fan of Frank Sinatra You know what I mean, and you talk about bringing things back What better way to bring it back than with your look and who you are? Yes. Yes. So, Landau, you come out on this stage chewing your gum doing you’re Doing your silly Bobby impressions and your Howie Mandel hero-worship And I’m thinking this is going to be total train wreck if I’m honest, I thought honestly I really did I just thought this guy’s not serious and then he began to sing and I Couldn’t believe quite what I was hearing I really couldn’t And what I like about you What I like about you is I don’t think you really know how good a singer you are have you ever auditioned for anything before? Never in my life This is your first ever audition? First ever audition in front of anybody First audition and he blazed it. You are a very unusual talent. You’re the kind of reason that we like doing the show because you come out of nowhere You’ve never auditioned before in your life, and you have a natural god-given talent Your life is never going to be the same. I’m telling you you just changed your whole life.

>John Legend Girl, I’m in love with you this ain’t the honeymoon passed the infatuation phase Right in the thick of love, at times we get sick of love Seems like we argue every day I know I misbehaved and you made your mistakes and we both still got room left to grow and though love sometimes hurts, I still put you first and I think this will work, but I think we should take it slow We’re just ordinary people We don’t know which way to go Cause we’re ordinary people Maybe we should take it slow. Take it slow, ooh This time we’ll take it slow take it slow This time we’ll take it slow Man you are a must have on the show. Yes for me Without a doubt brilliant. I really did think you’re going to be a crazy I liked it What do you think? You have a beautifully mature voice. It’s very nice, and it’s very beautiful to listen to it resonates This whole room was just captivated by your voice You could heard a penny drop and that’s what to me a great artist is and I like to say welcome to Australian Idol. Welcome. Oh, like in it? Look you are just terrific and the best thing is you’re eighteen you are just gonna get better and better and better absolutely fantastic right big yes Thank you Oh my gosh Unbelievable mate well done see you in sydney. Yeah, no worries So Stan brings our brisbane auditions to an end in sensational style>Hello
>Hi, how are you? I’m fine thanks. How are you? Good nice to meet you. What’s the act called? Charlotte and Jonathan Charlotte and Jonathan okay How old are you both?>I’m 16
>And I’m 17 Okay, and and you thought the combination would work whose idea was it It was our singing teacher’s actually she thought it would be good to try us out together and we both sounded quite good when we sang what we did Okay. You’re not saying much Jonathan Are you shy? Sometimes I’ve always had sort of problems with my size since like I can remember and when I was in sort of primary school It was back then really that I had sort of the mick taken out of me And it kind of damaged my confidence quite a bit when when people would say something to me I just it just take a little piece out of me in a sense I’m quite protective of Jonathan like if someone If I was there and someone stood there and said something to him I wouldn’t sit I couldn’t sit there with my mouth shut Before you make a judgment on someone is that you need to get to know them. It’s not as cliches It’s not judging a book by its cover. You’ve got you’ve got to read what’s inside. Charlotte’s been a really big help for me in terms of confidence and making me a better performer And I really don’t think I’ll be going up on stage today if I didn’t have Charlotte by my side And do you think you could win? Yeah, together All right, good luck. Thank you Here we go
