American Idol was resurrected by ABC after a two-year hiatus with new judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, while Ryan Seacrest returned as host.

Irvine has been pursuing a singing career in Los Angeles after having performed with kids group Hi-5 from 2009 to 2011 and appeared on The Voice Australia, on Ricky Martin's team, in 2014.
