Final audition show of the week. We are hitting Brisbane first! "God help you" tells Mel with a diabolic laugh. And the first contestant is up, Antonio Sneddon, an underwear model, which I really don't get. If that guy can be a model, everyone can. Seriously, he's not even cute. He's singing a Ronan song! "You don't wanna do that" says Ronan. Hilarious. His faces are killing me! Haha. He's getiting the song all wrong, Ronan is singing along, helping him. It's a hot mess. He's a major joke. Ronan trying to guide him is the best part of this. Haha - VIDEO

Coming from the Gold Coast, Cleo Howman  (25), is looking like a loner cause her boyfriend missed the train and will be late. She's kinda pissed. Her style lays between indie and pop she tells us. Singing "You've got the Love", she's sounding really shaky and messy. Still, I love her voice, she's got a really unique tone and a cool phrasing. She picks it up at the end. I want more! Mel thinks that she would have nailed it with a more folky, jazzy, bluesy song, I agree. Still, she's sent through, with Mel saying no. I see a lot of potential on her though. I want her as a finalist! Probably my fave Over. - VIDEO

The next contestant, Pete Murphy (45), who's done musical theater, and worked with Nat in Rent 15 years ago, is hoping to impress the judges. Well, he's certainly got Nat's vote even before performing. He was doing a show in London and got an infection and had to quit. Then he was stabbed in the head when robbed. Crazy. "That's a crappy year bro" Guy says. His voice is quite good, not my type but he can sing. He's got this big theatrical  voice and he pulled some crazy notes. Judges loved that. He's through. - VIDEO

The boys are feeling the heat! Bryne Jenke (19), impresses with his good looks and raspy pop voice, followed by afro 17 y/o Rob Baron, whose voice is less than impressive, but we only saw 10 seconds, so who knows? Next is William Singe (18), who has the biggest voice in the montage, but nothing that impressive.

Central Australia uni student, Zaachariaha Fielding (19) is next and he impresses everyone with his amazing rendition of "Talking Bout a Revolution". Great unique tone, I specially like the way he whispers the "like a whisper" line. It's a pretty amazing audition but he needs more stage presence and confidence. He gets emotional. Really good overall. 4 massive yeses. - VIDEO

He's got the guns, she's got the legs, they are Straigh Up. "He's massive" says Luke. Jade is the singer, Nas the entertainer. Oh, what a bad song choice, it implys too little singing. His voice is kinda annoying. I don't really like the guy, but her voice is amazing. Lots of swagger. She's very rap driven. And they make an interesting mix together. She'll be better as a solo, but this group isn't necesarilly bad. Audience loves them. "Your legs, your arms, ahh" Mel tells them. They sail to bootcamp. - VIDEO

Final audition of the day, Paige Phoenix (35). His girlfriend lives in San Fransisco. He's a regular guy, he says. Well, he's not, here comes the shocker. He's a transgender. Right? Who saw that coming?! He's got a really great raspy voice, quite unique and really interesting. I want more from him, this is amazing. Best audition of the night, definitely. They all agree that his voice is amazing, so he's through. And that's the end of the show. - VIDEO
