The Australian Idol 2023 Top 8 contestants have been revealed today during episode 16 of Season 8 on Monday 6 March 2023.
Towards the end of yesterday’s live show, 27-year-old Noora H was saved by the judges’ vote and automatically progressed to the Top 8. Noora H performed “The Voice Within” by Christina Aguilera.
At the end of the Top 10 performance live show, a visibly happy Noora H stated that;
I just sang the voice within and it was one of the most special performances I’ve ever done, and I just hope that everybody else loved it as much as I did and I chose that song not only for me and my younger self, but for you guys as well.
Therefore all the other 9 singers in the Top 10 were left to the mercy of Australia as voting for the Top kicked off.
