Will Dylan Wright Become the “Australian Idol” Dark Horse? The Facts

Meet the Australian Idol finalist Dylan Wright
Channel 7

The “Australian Idol” finale is upon us. Three exciting finalists have put everything on the line to make it here. In the lead-up to this finale, everyone is talking about the country singer Denvah Baker-Moller and the booming voice of Amy Reeves. This has left the third  “Australian Idol” finalist, Dylan Wright, as a bit of an underdog. 

But Dylan has been consistently proving that he shouldn’t be underestimated throughout the competition. In fact, on the first night of the season, he blew the judges away with his acoustic cover of Crowded House’s “Better Be Home”. 

“I think you are a freaking superstar,” the judge Amy Shark said. “That was such a great performance. You’ve got everything: A kind heart, a great performer, and you’ve got a look.”

After winning a Golden Ticket, Dylan has sung his way to the top. In the Top 21, he did Marc Cohn’s “Walking in Memphis” proud. In the Top 10, he scored a Fast Pass for his bopping cover of The Proclaimers’ “500 Miles”. With each performance, Dylan has proved that he deserves to be in this competition.

But while Dylan has made it to the finale, he’s not won the title yet. Does he have what it takes to escape Denvah and Amy’s shadow? Or will he be regulated to being a runner-up in the history books? Here’s everything we know about the “Australian Idol” singer Dylan.

Who Is the “Australian Idol” Finalist Dylan Wright?

Before signing up for “Australian Idol”, Dylan Wright was a painter and decorator. This job took him up and down the NSW’s Northern Rivers. 

According to Dylan, he wants to leave this job behind. He wants to show his two little girls, Piper, aged four, and Rivi, aged one, that they can follow their dreams.

“I auditioned for ‘Australian Idol’ because I grew up loving the show,” Dylan said in a statement. “It never felt like the right time, but all of a sudden, the stars have aligned.” 

“I hope to be one of the most successful ‘Australian Idol’ contestants and to make my family proud. My dream is to write and perform music full time.”

With his dreams on the line, we know that Dylan will try his darndest to win 2024’s “Australian Idol” finale. If he loses, it won’t be due to a lack of trying.
