    • Brianna: (asked which previous "Australian Idol" finalist she found most inspiring) I'd have to say Bobby Flynn. Mostly because he was absolutely unique. His arrangements were fantastic and he achieved everything he set out to achieve from the competition.

    • Brianna: (on the "Australian Idol" judges) think sometimes they say things that aren't really valid, not to me so much but just to some people. I'm sure everyone thinks it, they are just like I don't know what that comment has to do with the song but I think they're quite fair. They judge quite well and they do have great things to say and their criticism is constructive most of the time so they are good.

    • Brianna: (asked when she realised she wanted to become a singer) I was in Year 10 and performing in musicals in Brisbane. I got such a kick from performing in front of an audience, but musical theatre wasn't what I wanted to pursue. I was a songwriter and wanted to perform my own music to audiences.

    • Brianna: I'm very much a space person. I really need time to chill out and I can't write when there are other people around. When you have a bunch of musicians around, they all want to jam all the time and I just want to be left alone to do my own thing.
