Shannon Noll (born 16 September 1975) is an Australian singer who first came to prominence as runner-up of the first series of Australian Idol (2003) which led to him being signed to Sony BMG. Since then he has released five Top 10 albums. That's What I'm Talking About in 2004 and Lift in 2005 were No. 1 multi-platinum sellers, and his third album Turn It Up released in 2007 reached No. 3 and was certified platinum. His two following albums did not gain certification. No Turning Back: The Story So Far containing some of his previous hits and five new songs was released in 2008, peaking at No. 7, and A Million Suns released in October 2011 reached No. 8. Noll's first ten singles released between February 2004 and September 2007 all peaked inside the Aria Top 10. He is the only Australian male artist in Australian chart history to have ten consecutive top 10 singles. Seven of his singles reached the top 5, including three number ones. He has released seven further singles since 2007, with two reaching the top 50, the highest charting one peaking at number 26. John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Guy Sebastian have all achieved more top 10 singles than Noll, but they were nonconsecutive.
