Kelly Cavuoto (born May 21, 1981) is an Australian singer and television presenter, finishing seventh in the first series of Australian Idol.
Kelly had many years singing experience with rock bands throughout South Australia, before auditioning for Australian Idol in 2003. Dubbed "The Rock Chick" by judge Ian "Dicko" Dickson, she covered a selection of harder edged rock songs throughout the series, at odds with most other contestants who chose to cover pop songs.
During the 2003 Australian Idol series finals, Cavuoto sang:
Top 12 Heat: Evanescence - "Bring Me to Life" The '70's: Led Zeppelin - "Whole Lotta Love" Australian Number Ones: Silverchair - "Tomorrow" Aussie Made: Killing Heidi - "Mascara" In January 2004, Cavuoto appeared as a co-host for Channel Ten's Video Hits music program. Her contract however came to a premature end in November after she was accused of excessive alcohol consumption and using inappropriate language while watching a Guy Sebastian video during the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, in Sydney, New South Wales.
