Natalie Imbruglia

Natalie Imbruglia first entered the spotlight when she starred as Beth Brennan on the Australian soap opera Neighbours in the early '90s, but she became an international star in 1997 when her cover of Ednaswap's "Torn" turned into a worldwide smash. Imbruglia's version is a cornerstone of adult alternative rock, a song whose sensibility is somewhat left of center but whose pretty execution is straight down the middle. Although she didn't manage to land a follow-up of equal magnitude in the United States, she continued to have hits into the mid-2000s in Europe and her native Australia and she also pursued work in film and on television, including appearing as a judge for two seasons on the Australian version of The X Factor. After an extended hiatus, she relaunched her musical career in 2015 with Male, a collection of covers of male singer/songwriters.
