The fans of X-Factor Australia watched in awe as one of the contestants, wowed the judges week after week, to the most standing ovations, in a row, on record, for the show.
Who is this princess of pop, none other than DAMI IM, 24 year old, piano teacher, from Brisbane, Australia.
The moment she walked on stage, and started interacting with the judges, she was a new star- born.
Her audition song was ” Hero ” and not only did the judges give her a standing ovation, the full audience of over four thousand people did as well.
She maintained her brilliance for the next five songs, leading to standing ovations.
The next two, two of the judges didn’t like, but the audience loved them, so the audience spoke and she went into the grand finals.
The back lighting for the songs, were perfect.
Danni Monigue was chosen for Dami’s mentor, and she did an outstanding job, getting her girl through to win the X-Factor 2013.
Songs sung by Dami- Hero, Purple Rain, Bridge over Troubled Waters, Clarity, Roar, Wrecking Ball and others.
The real funny part about all of this is at bootcamp Dami was sent home, but one of the six chosen, couldn’t do the amount of time necessary to do X-Factor, so they brought Dami back, and she went on to win the whole bit.
She is Australia new international pop star; Roar for Dami, and be one of Damisarmy!
