Shannon Noll (born 16 September 1975) first came to prominence as runner-up of the first series of Australian Idol (2003) which led to him being signed to Sony BMG. Since then he has released four Top 10 albums and ten Top 10 singles. His first two albums That's What I'm Talking About in 2004 and Lift in 2005 debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA charts and both reached multi platinum accreditation. His third album Turn It Up released in 2007, debuted at No. 3 and was accredited platinum. His most recent album No Turning Back: The Story So Far containing some of his previous hits and five new songs was released in 2008, debuting at No. 7. Noll's first ten singles released between February 2004 and September 2007 all peaked inside the Aria Top 10. He is the only Australian artist in Australian chart history to have ten consecutive Top 10 singles. Seven of these singles were Top 5 with three of those debuting at No. 1.

Noll has 17 platinum and two gold accreditations for albums and singles according to Australian Recording Industry Association records, which is the second highest accreditation level for an Australian Idol contestant, and the highest for a non winner. His 2008 biography on his official website states he has sold over 1 million units in Australia, but the figure would actually be over 1.3 million. Noll received Aria nominations for highest seller for his debut album and single in 2004, and for the single "Shine" in 2006. His second album Lift was also nominated for Best Pop release in that year. He won MTV awards for Best Male Artist three years in succession between 2005 and 2007.
