Denis Handlin AM, Chairman & CEO Australia & New Zealand and President, Asia, Sony Music Entertainment, commented: 'The X Factor 2013 has uncovered an exceptional array of talent. Congratulations to Ian Hogg and his team at Fremantle Media Australia and to the Seven Network as well as to all the contestants for an incredible season. Throughout the series, Dami has proven what an extremely talented performer she is and has been a consistently strong contender to win the series throughout the live shows. I am really excited that we will be releasing an album of Dami's incredible X Factor journey in November for all her fans to enjoy."
Ian Hogg, CEO Fremantle Media Australia & Asia Pacific, says, "We are thrilled that not only has this series of The X Factor resonated so strongly with audiences but also unearthed a number of recording stars for Sony Music. Our winner, Dami Im, is a unique talent and much-loved by the public. She is now working with the best in the business with Denis and his team at Sony."
24 year old Queenslander Dami Im shocked the judges in her audition for The X Factor, performing a beautiful rendition of Mariah Carey's -Hero.' However, her journey abruptly ended after 'Super Boot Camp" when she was told she had not made it in to the Top 24. Fortunately, Dami was brought back into the competition in time for 'Home Visits," and was consequently handpicked by her mentor Dannii Minogue as part of her Top 3 and the Final 12. Dami went on to deliver some of the greatest performances of the season, with every one of them charting on iTunes, including her rendition of -Bridge Over Troubled Water' by Simon & Garfunkel which took the number #1 position ahead of Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.
You can catch the amazing Top 5 contestants on The X Factor Live Tour this November. Dami Im, Taylor Henderson, Jai Waetford, Third D3gree and Jiordan Tolli will perform a selection of their most loved songs from their time on the show and get up close and personal with their fans.
