Dami Im, who was born in South Korea and moved to Australia at a young age, has won the 2013 edition of Australia's 'X Factor'!


She first impressed everyone with Mariah Carey's "Hero" and kept advancing with her strong vocals, but she was eventually sent home after one instance of forgetting the lyrics.  However, with a great stroke of luck, she managed to return to the show for an amazing victory. 


Check out some of the highlights below to hear her sing and see her attention-grabbing outfits. Congratulations!

Dami is amazing.. Hope one day she can be an international star.. No offence to Kpop fans but she can do much better than just a kpop singer..

Amazing voice, but what did they do to her? She looked so different from the time she auditioned...

Watching Dami every week on the X-Factor blows my heart away. Such down to earth and hardworking girl. Loved how she awkwardly traipse in during her first audition - look how far she's come now. So proud of you, Dami! All of Australia are - it showed in the votes ((:
Stay the way you are, Dami - all quirky like that. As much as I love Kpop, I wish you retain your personality and not to have to conform to mainstream KPOP. xx

She tried to forge a music career in Korea, but no one really gave her a chance. Hopefully this will give her the attention and opportunities she deserves.

I don't see why not. Does she not speak Korean well? Did she not spend enough time there?

@yoon-hee-lee Bo? Borago?! She's hot. It's the music that's supposed to matter. She's not trying to become a model.
