Will.i.am has recently admitted that he had no idea The Voice Australia would have such awesome talent on show.

”I thought they were going to have good singers but I didn’t think they were gonna have ‘What the f—, did you hear that?’ I didn’t think that was gonna happen. If I had to judge The Voice UK versus The Voice Australia, Australia has better singers. That was surprising. Surprisingly awesome.”

Well hello Will.i.am – we all knew that. Here are the top five Aussie ladies killing it both here on their home turf and overseas.

Tina Arena

NET WORTH: $245 Million


Beginning her career on Young Talent Time (how bloody ace was that show?), Tina is arguably the most talented Aussie female singer. Ever. The woman can sing in four different languages, has sold over eight million records world wide and has been awarded the Knighthood of Order of National Merit in France. Splitting her time between Australia, France and the UK, Arena dropped her first English album in eleven years, Reset, late last year.

Kylie Minogue

NET WORTH: $75 Million


As IF we could not mention Kylie.  Neighbours. 70 million records sold worldwide. The gold hot pants. With so many ARIAs, Brit Awards and Grammys under her belt, Kylie truly is the definition of music royalty.  Her single Can’t Get You Out of My Head was number one in 40 countries; she has been inducted into the ARIA hall of fame, has received an OBE from the Queen and has been knighted by the French Government. Her latest album Kiss Me Once came out in March, and she is continuing to inspire us as an amazing coach in the third series of The Voice Australia. 


NET WORTH: $20 Million


Sia has had multiple number one hits, both as a singer and as a songwriter for artists such as Rihanna, Katie Perry and Madonna. Her video clips are quirky and incredible (if you haven’t checked them out yet, do!)  and her new solo album comes out in July, we totally can’t wait to hear it!

Iggy Azalea

NET WORTH: $3 Million


Hailing from N.S.W, Iggy Azalea moved to the States at age 16. Since then she has been making a name for herself, both as a model and rapper. Iggy is the face of Levis, and has topped the charts in both the UK and the US with her single Fancy. At just 23, there are huge things ahead for this Aussie superstar.

Jess Mauboy

NET WORTH: $3 Million


Jess Mauboy has been dominating the Australian music (and film!) industry ever since she was runner-up on Australian Idol in 2006. The 24 year old has appeared on Ellen, Sesame Street and boosted her international profile most recently starring as an Aussie representative at Eurovision, we love Jess!
