In 2003, Sydney's Shane Jenek tried out for Australian Idol. Not quite making the cut, he returned the next day in drag as COURTNEY ACT. This time, he made it through to the finals. Courtney’s explosive, energetic performing style, coupled with her joyous personality, sent audiences wild and Australia had a new sweetheart. Hot on the high heels of the TV series came the phenomenally successful national arena tour and a record deal with Sony/BMG. Since then, Courtney Act has opened for Lady Gaga's Australian club tour; sung a duet with Idina Menzel; been voted one of FHM’s World’s Top 100 Sexiest Women (despite not actually being a woman) and one of the World’s Most Influential People by Out Magazine; graced the catwalk of LA & Australian Fashion Weeks; played Angel in Rent; Frank’n’Furter in Rocky Horror, served as spokesmodel for Sheer Cover makeup; performed onstage at the Hollywood Bowl, made appearances on TV shows including Candidly Nicole, NBC’s Are You There Chelsea? with Chelsea Handler, Only In America with Larry The Cable Guy, and Australia’s Next Top Model.
