    • Natalie: (asked how she prepares herself before a performance) Mentally I need space and quiet time just to chill - and I do some vocal warm ups/sirens and run though my lyrics. I find it a challenge to remember the words - even in my original songs! Ha!

    • Natalie: (on the "Australian Idol" judges) I love all the judges. I have had Marcia dealing with my auditions and she is very positive and keeps me calm and grounded. She rocks.

    • Natalie: (asked what the best thing about competing on "Australian Idol" was) The Maccas! Nah, so far I've loved the sing -a-longs and the group auditions - I got the privilege of singing with the best singers in Australia! It was so much fun!

    • Natalie: (asked which artist - dead or alive - she would most like to perform a duet with) There are so many artist I'd love to sing with, but an Aussie singer I would love to sing with would definitely be GUY SEBASTIAN! I'd be pretty satisfied with that situation!

    • Natalie: (asked which artist - dead or alive - she would most like to perform a duet with) There are so many artist I'd love to sing with, but an Aussie singer I would love to sing with would definitely be GUY SEBASTIAN! I'd be pretty satisfied with that situation!

    • Natalie: (on why "Australian Idol" is important to the local music industry) Australian Idol has introduced new musical genres to a broader audience. More people are starting to appreciate live music of many genres other then mainstream pop. It gives people like me an opportunity to reach a wider audience.

    • Natalie: (on what quality she considers, apart from a strong voice, a star performer should possess) Star quality, I believe happens when you're born and then it grows with you, if you allow it to. There's a time for every star to shine! Whoohoo!!

    • Natalie: (describing her feeling at her first audition) I wasn't nervous until they called my name. As soon as I stood infront of the judges my heart was POUNDING - I could hear it! Marcia calmed me down with some practice of deep breathing.

    • Natalie: (asked which previous "Australian Idol" finalist she finds most inspiring) Guy Sebastian would have to be my absolute favourite. He inspired me to audition this year. To see him still performing and endeavoring to higher heights makes me believe in the Australian Music industry even more.

    • Natalie: (on her favourite genre of music) I have a few favourite genres. I love Soul, Blues, Jazz and Pop. I love it because I can relate to it and it challenges my ears. These genres express emotions that are deep and usually communicate something special - well, to me anyway!

    • Natalie: (on her past love) I was actually engaged when I was 19. He was 29 and he owned a café in my area. He was a real family man and we got along very well. He was Lebanese, so he had a similar upbringing to me. When we got engaged, things got too heavy too quickly. I didn't think the engagement would change anything, but we started talking about children and moving to Lebanon. I just wanted to concentrate on my singing.

    • Natalie: (on when she realised she wanted to be a professional singer) I got my first gig!! I was 17 and my first gig was at DeBiers in the city of Melbourne. We were all underage at the time, not that I'm encouraging under 18s to do the same; that's just how it started It was E.S.P-Jazz band. I had so much fun, I knew at that point I was ready to sing!

    • Natalie: (on the best advice she has even been given) A good friend of mine gave me some advice. He said, 'Be careful and think twice before you talk about your life. Protect yourself.' But I just said I live my life the way I want, I've got nothing to hide. Nothing at all.

    • Natalie: (asked how she stops getting stressed before performing on stage) I meditate before I go to bed and I drink lots of green tea with manuka honey. That's what I'm known for now, my manuka honey.
