Chenai has returned to Australian Idol for redemption having auditioned for Season 8 in 2023 but didn’t progress to the next stage because she failed to impress judges Amy Shark, Harry Connick Jr., Meghan Trainor, and Kyle Sandilands with her audition performance.

Drawing inspiration from great storytellers such as Dolly Parton, John Mayer, Jimmy Barnes, Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Christopher Drew, Pink, and Lady Gaga to name a few, Chenai brings soulful rock to the stage in a powerhouse performance.

Her love of performing live really ignites a passion in all who witness her presence on stage.
