One of the judges, Kyle, was absolutely delighted with her performance and exclaimed,” You’re exactly what I’m looking for!”

He went on to praise Kiana for her confidence, strong vocal range, and her ability to select the perfect songs which perfectly suits her style as well.

Meanwhile Marcia, another judge, was equally impressed with Kiana’s voice but suggested that she needs to work on her skills a bit. Despite this, Marcia considered Kiana’s performance to be one of the best performances she had seen on the show so far.

Overall it was a “Yes” from all the three judges. She has made it to the top 30 of Australian Idol Contestants. We’ll see more from her in the coming episodes.

Here are some glimpses of her Australian Idol Audition :

My music career started at the age of seven, (where I) picked up my first guitar, which was the age I wrote my first song

Kiani says to judges as Intro & Bio

I started writing many more songs, gigging two years later, and since then I have performed gigs up and down the east coast of Australia. Competing in competitions and working with Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism. All of this has led me to where I am today, competing on Australian idol

Kiani says auditioning for Australian Idol was an “unreal experience.”

All the amazing people I’ve met along the way, performing in front of the judges. Idol has made me a more confident and professional musician

I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am today, so being able to say I’m on Australian Idol makes me beyond proud of myself and proves that anything is possible no matter the age.

Kiani’s journey into musical stardom has been supported by her parents every step of the way.

My mum and dad are definitely my biggest supporters, being known as the Mumager and Dadager of Kiani. Pretty much my parents are my roadies and have got me to all my performances. Biggest thanks to them, as I wouldn’t be where I am today without them

If music is something you are truly passionate about, don’t let anyone or anything stop you from going for it. Everyone is capable of achieving their dreams, just give it your all, get out there, and enjoy every minute,
