Guy Sebastian

Thu 26 October 2017

Guy Sebastian is still everyone’s favourite Australian Idol winner, but he's so modest that when we told him that he said “What about Shannon Noll?”

He tells Barry Divola about growing up in the church, meeting his future wife when he was 12 and she was 14, and what he would tell his teenage self if he could go back in time. Guy plays The Platters, Pearl Jam, Mariah Carey with Boys II Men and more.
