Holly: (asked who her favorite 'Australian Idol' judge was) Mark, 'cause he has tact. Marcia is lovely too.
Holly: (asked which singer - dead or alive - she would most like to perform a duet with) Billie Holiday - in her early days. She's an icon! Not properly trained, but has a voice like chocolate. Love her!

Holly: (on the day of her "Australian Idol" audition) I was so nervous and when they let me in I was like a stunned mullet!
Holly: (asked when she first realised she wanted to become a professional singer ) I was about six years old, I just decided it'd be the best thing. My first concert was George from Play School! I bought an "I Saw George" shirt and wore it EVERYWHERE.
Holly: (on her family's reaction to her reaching the finals in "Australian Idol") Dad actually bought me a bunch of flowers, which was really lovely. They were all really, really excited and they wouldn't stop talking about it, I think they were actually more excited than I was about the whole thing.
Holly: (on the best bit of advice someone has given her) I shouldn't really write this, but my sister's advice, "Stuff 'em!" helped me get though some hairy moments.
