Delta Goodrem’s Best Moments

Delta Goodrem has been a part of our lives for close to two decades. If you can stretch your mind back far enough, you may remember the precocious Delta in television commercials for Nesquik and other brands - but it was her role as the fresh-faced, secret songstress Nina Tucker on Neighbours that allowed her to become a household name. With six albums and a slew of on-screen work under her belt, Delta has never quite left the limelight, and the 33-year old isn’t retreating any time soon. Ahead of her appearance at Watergardens Town CentrE TOMORROW, we take a look back at Delta’s most memorable moments.

Back when she was still a wee one, Delta appeared on A Country Practice as Georgina Bailey, the girl bitten by a dog. A short while later, there she was on our screens again, this time with a guest role as a school girl on the popular sitcom, Hey Dad

Australia witnessed the birth of a star when Nina Tucker finally overcame her shyness and performed 'Born to Try' at Erinsborough’s talent contest. Within weeks, the song became the number one single in Australia. Delta had only just turned 18.

Delta’s debut album 'Innocent Eyes' hit number one on the ARIA Albums Charts on March 31st 2003. Delta snagged six ARIA Awards in total that year, including Highest Selling Album and Best Female Artist.

A year later, Delta debuted her dark new look and grown up sound in her sophomore album Mistaken Identity. Twenty-year-old Delta had been undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer since late 2003, when 'Innocent Eyes' was climbing the charts, and Mistaken Identity was her emotionally brave documentation of her journey.

In 2005, Delta played the infuriatingly perfect Alison Ashley in the 2005 teen comedy Hating Alison Ashley, landing the cover of teen magazines and cementing her place as a teenage hero.

In 2012, Delta was honoured with her own wax figurine at Sydney’s Madame Tussauds, which if we’re being honest, doesn’t do her justice.

When she became a judge on The Voice in 2012, she sparked national conversation with her jumpsuits, each one more shimmery than the next. True to style, Delta ignored the haters and continued rocking the pantsuits and jumpsuits.

Earlier this year, she donned a sequinned number while performing at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Flanked by some very ripped drummers, Delta was a vision in blue.

Delta’s most recent jumpsuit moment hit our television screens on Mother’s Day. On Sunday, we were treated to scenes of Delta in the famous cat suit from Grease, as part of her role as Olivia Newtown John in Seven’s television biopic Olivia: Hopelessly Devoted to You.
