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. His first two albums were No. 1 multi-platinum sellers, and his third album reached No. 3 and was certified platinum. His two following albums did not gain certification. Noll's first ten singles all peaked inside the Aria Top 10, including three which reached No. 1. He is the only Australian male artist in Australian chart history to have ten consecutive top 10 singles. John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Guy Sebastian have all achieved more top 10 singles than Noll, but they were nonconsecutive. Since 2007 Noll has released seven more singles, with only two reaching the top 50, the highest one peaking at number 26.
Noll has achieved 17 platinum and three gold certifications and his combined album and single sales have reached over 1.3 million, the second highest certification and sales level for an Australian Idol contestant, and the highest for a non-winner. Noll has received five ARIA nominations including Best Pop Release for his second album Lift. He won MTV awards for Best Male Artist three years in succession between 2005 and 2007.
