    Season 5 

Dami Im

  • Arc Words: "Awesome singing."
  • Adorkable
  • Asian Airhead: Subverted. While she might seem a little spacey at times, she is very skilled at the piano and taught it as a living. She also practiced her singing for years.
  • Character Development: Gradually gains a lot of stage presence and confidence from her first audition by the time she makes the final.
  • Christmas Cake: As a woman in the Overs category, she qualifies. Interestingly, she came in on the borderline at 24 while it was an Over 25s category (which is usually the cutoff for many female singers making their debut), but was bumped into the category when it changed to Over 24s. She actually did turn 25 right near the end of the season.
  • The Chanteuse: The staging and atmosphere for "Saving All My Love For You" was definitely meant to evoke this.
  • Competence Zone: A rare zigzagged example. While she is older than many of the contestants in her season, she is the youngest of the Overs, and even then is only in that category because it was changed from Over 25s to 24s at super Super bootcamp. But then the other two Overs are eliminated within the first three weeks so she becomes the oldest for the last seven weeks . . . however, it is widely agreed she was at the very least one of the best in her season, regardless of age.
  • Fandom Nickname: The Dami Army.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: The dress for "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
  • Flawless Victory: Unlike Reece Mastin and especially Samantha Jade before her, she was never in the Bottom 2 in her entire run.
  • Foreshadowing: During Week 1, she was the first contestant to be declared safe. Later on she go on to place first.
  • Funny Foreigner
  • Genki Girl
  • Guttural Growler: At times.
  • Irony: Was initially not selected for Home Visits, only come back as a replacement when one of the original six dropped out. She is then selected and proceeds to win the whole thing.
  • Happily Married: She and her husband Noah love to bring this up.
  • Korean Pop Music: Initially aspired to go into this type of music. However, she decides on more of a powerhouse style of singing after training, which she performed during the show.
  • Melismatic Vocals
  • No Damage Run: Made it to the Final 3 while never being in the Bottom 2.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Several. Received a Lampshade Hanging one week where, after her performance of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," a hash tag for the performance, #That Dress, appeared onscreen.
  • Shrinking Violet: At first.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She is very tall even without heels, which she usually wears.
  • The Cast Showoff: She plays the piano during Week 1 for her performance of "One". Interestingly, this was the only time she did so, a rarity since contestants on these shows who can play instruments will usually play theirs just about every other performance.
  • The Piano Player: She taught piano for a living prior to show.

Taylor Henderson

Jai Waetford

Third D3gree

  • Aerith and Bob: The members are Kelebek, Jacinta and Jordan.
  • Four Is Death
  • Hope Spot: Even moreso than Jiordan the week before; as it was their third time in the bottom two and they were against Taylor Henderson, a front runner who was on his first time. Instead of the judges voting them out straight away, the vote was two to one in their favor . . . until Red Foo took it to deadlock. Even then, it was still a better chance as many thought Taylor would automatically be saved, although it didn't make much of a difference in the end.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: Kelebek's real name is Vanessa.
  • My Nayme Is: A rare intended example. Justified in that they're a group.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Although their rapping is considered legitimately good.
  • Two Girls and a Guy
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: "Jacinta" is pretty out there as far as names are concerned, and yes, it is her birth name.

Jiordan Tolli

  • Break Up Song: Although many contestants do these, she's notable for doing several: "Smile", "Torn", "Don't Speak," and "Somebody That I Used To Know."
  • The Cutie
  • Darker and Edgier: Her cover of Michael Jackson's "Thriller".
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: From blonde to pink.
  • Flower in Her Hair
  • Genki Girl
  • Hope Spot: Despite being on her third trip to the bottom two and being considered the likeliest to leave that week, the judges let the vote between her and Third D3gree go to deadlock . . . only for her to have the lowest votes anyway.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Many noted that her Save Me songs were really good and although she worked well with the songs given to her, she seemed more adept ant song choice than her mentor Red Foo.
  • Go Out with a Smile
  • Graceful Loser: Mouths along the lyrics to Third D3gree's performance of Thrift Shop during their "Save Me" performance against her.
  • Irony: Two hours before her performance in Week 4, she started having symptoms of a heart attack, but decides to perform anyway. The song she was singing that week? Ellie Goulding's Burn.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • My Nayme Is: Her name is Jiordan. It's pronounced the way "Jordan" usually is and is almost never seen anywhere else as a variation.
  • One Steve Limit: Subverted. While there are no other soloists named Jordan among the finalists, one of the members of Third D3gree is. He is a guy though.
    • Played straight, however, in that no one of note on the show or not has the particular spelling of "Jiordan".
  • Pink Means Feminine: the fake bedroom she starts out in for her cover of "Smile" is almost completely pink.
  • Sad Clown: The theme of her costume for "Don't Speak."
  • Scenery Porn: The entire set design for "Smile", full stop.
  • The Cover Changes The Gender: Averted with "With Or Without You" and "Dancing With Myself".
  • Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Averted, the platform for "With Or Without You" was supposed to rotate, but it doesn't. She covers this by turning herself around as she stands up.
  • Vocal Range Exceeded: During her cover of "Burn", the judges noted she sounded like she was straining for the high notes.
  • Walking Disaster Area: During Week 3, the platform she was sitting on had a malfunction and didn't rotate. The following week, she sings despite having symptoms of a heart attack just two hours prior. Then, during Week 8, there's a little malfuncion for her band's platform. And yet, she carried it all with dignity.
