    5. In 2003, her debut album Innocent Eyes sold 1.2 million copies in Australia ALONE. One in twenty Australians bought her album. It sold 4.5 million copies worldwide.

    6. She was the first ever artist in Australia to have five number-one singles from a debut album. Oh, and btw she was only 18 at the time.

    (Born To Try, Lost Without You, Innocent Eyes, Not Me Not I & Predictable.)

    7. Then, to top it off, she cleared out the 2003 Aria Awards, winning seven pointy silver triangles.

    8. AND all of this was done while she was undergoing treatment for Hodgkins lymphoma.
