‘Australian Idol’ season two champ Casey Donovan performed at the 2005 Deadly Awards at the Opera House on September 22nd in Sydney, Australia. The Deadly Awards are The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music, Sport, Entertainment and Community awards, honoring Indigenous achievers in sport, the arts, health and education.
The Sunday Times reports that Casey Donovan says she wouldn’t have made it through the first round of ‘Australian Idol’ auditions this year with new judge Kyle Sandilands (of the Kyle and Jackie O. Show) on the show. “The new Idol is good but I just don’t know what is going on with picking all of the hot chicky babes,” Donovan said. As for the comparisons to last year’s runner-up Anthony Callea, who has had more success selling records, the plus-sized singer said, “I am a bit annoyed with it. It takes its toll on me, but it hurts my family even more.” The full story at sundaytimes.news.com.au has since been removed.
