2. Shakaya


The duo released two albums in the '00s and toured with Destiny's Child, Usher, and Kylie Minogue.

Most popular song: It's gotta be that ever-catchy debut single, and a sentence I issue to PR people on the daily – "Stop Calling Me".


6. Operator Please


The catchy five-piece burst on the scene in 2007 and were nominated for two Arias that year.

Most popular song: It's just a song... it's just a song... it's just a song... it's just A SONG ABOUT PING PONG.

7. Shannon Noll


Most Aussie millennials know this dude as the victim of Australia's biggest robbery in 2003, after he was defeated by Guy Sebastian on Australian Idol.

Most popular song: Noll's cover of "What About Me?" should basically be the next national anthem.


8. Selwyn

Sony BMG

Selwyn was a contestant on the second series of Popstars, but didn't make it through to the final groups. He released two albums.

Most popular song: Let's just go with "Boomin'".

10. Nikki Webster


She captured Australia's hearts at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and while she may not be in the public eye as much, she's a name millennials will never forget.

Most popular song: Do you even have to ask? "Strawberry Kisses" of course.

12. Sister2Sister (S2S)

Festival Mushroom

This sister duo had two top 5 singles on the Aria charts, and opened Sister2Sister School of Singing in 2004.

Most popular song: The aptly titled "Sister".


13. Joanne

Universal Music

Joanne's first single "Jackie" was released in late 1998 and became the highest-selling single by an Aussie artist in that year.

Most popular song: Well, duh, "Jackie".

15. Sirens

Remember that time a Big Brother evictee recorded a song with a band that no one really heard from again?

Most popular song: The bum-dance version of The Pointer Sisters classic "I'm So Excited".

17. Cherry


Cherry had a short-lived career in the late '90s, but didn't chart too well so their debut album was never released.

Most popular song: Look, I'm just going to go with "SOS" because I remember it.

19. Bachelor Girl


Their biggest song may be closing in on being 20 years old, but it's STILL played on the radio to this day. That's what I call success.

Most popular song: "Buses and Trains", and I know you still know all the words.
