VOICEOVER: Celebrating
great performances with Swisse.

Think you're gonna dance well?
Yes.

GERI: I really believe
in Australia's Got Talent. I love it when a show
gives an ordinary person an opportunity
they wouldn't necessarily have. Big day today, hey? WOMAN: Potentially
the biggest of days. You never know what can come
from these things.

When I decided
I wanted to pursue my career, I would go to loads of auditions. This is...what we've been working...
The final part of the journey. The struggle will be always there.

A lot of doors open for you
when you're famous, and I'm not.

MAN: The lead singer of this group is a backing singer
for someone quite famous. MAN: It's now or never. What makes a star is about
what shines through. 'Cause otherwise you just end up
being the backing singer.

MAN: Alright, Uncle Jed.
Yes? Are you guys ready
to come with me down...? Yeah!
Fantastic. We're Uncle Jed
and we're from Sydney. How long have you guys
been playing together? Oh, like, since we were little. We're all related, so we've been playing together
since we were, like, 16. Uncle Jed is...a family project. We've been working in the industry
for quite a while now, and not, you know,
bring out the violin or anything, but it's a struggle. Like, the industry's tough.
Mmm. To make ends meet, we've all
had to work with different artists, and I've been doing some
backing vocals with Jess Mauboy.

Much as I love working with her, our dream is always gonna be working
just as the three of us and to be able to do that full-time. It is your time. The stage is yours. Enjoy. Break a leg.
Thank you. Thank you very much. I don't know, I think we're excited
to step out of the shadows, and maybe even one day,
I'll get my own backing vocalists. (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)

Hey, guys.
Hi. Welcome to Australia's Got Talent.
Thank you very much. Tell us your name. Danny. I'm Laura. This is Shannon. And where does the name come from? Well, we're a family kind of trio. Jed's my dad,
these boys' uncle, so... Number one fan. Had to name the band
after him! (LAUGHS) Yeah. Awesome. Uncle Jed, take it away. Thank you.

These brave women break their silence.I couldn't believe what had happened. Against Australia's worst sexual predator. He was chuckling, he was giggling He almost got away with it.He absconded. But for one cop He's just an evil man And these courageous women.I hate him, I want him to rot in hell.Welcome to the program.

the program. The ad in the newspaper promised so much - the chance to work as a nanny aboard a luxury yacht. And many young women in their late teens and early twenties took the bait. The ads were actually a brazen trap by Australia's worst serial rapist. Twelve women have come forward after being raped by John Collins. Police believe there could be many more. Over decades, this monster used his wealth and power to lure victims onto his yacht, and then intimidation and fear to silence them. But the survivors of John Collins' depravity wouldn't stay quiet forever, and tonight, for the first time, they're speaking out.

These women share a terrible connection, but are united by their incredible strength.

They're just five victims of John Collins - Australia's worst serial rapist.I couldn't believe what had happened. I was drugged and raped. Flaunting his wealth, with a luxury yacht and flashy convertible, the confident Collins would cruise the coast of south-east Queensland.He just left a lot of misery in his wake. You know, he tore lives apart.A devious and dangerous sexual predator, he portrayed himself as a trustworthy single dad.How much do you yell when you've got an 8-year-old boy there, you know? How much do you inflict on him?

But now these women are fighting back.He needs to be more afraid of me than I am of him, because the power has shifted now.It's hard to imagine anything more brazen than advertising for unwitting victims, but that's exactly what Collins did. In 1987, he ran an enticing newspaper ad wanting a nanny to live aboard his luxury yacht to look after his 8-year-old son, Robbie. As a 19-year-old, Karren Wade innocently answered the ad.It was a serious job as far as I was concerned. So we had the interview. Everything went really well. Mum and dad were there for a couple of hours. Mum and dad asked questions, I asked questions. He asked questions. Everything seemed really good. We had no reason to distrust him.No wonder it seemed like the dream job - on board a yacht, sailing through the Whitsundays. A promised adventure on the water. For John Collins it was the perfect lure, and once he had the young women on board, the perfect trap. Some he raped while still moored at marinas like this, others he waited until he was out at sea where they had absolutely nowhere to go.He threatened my family, said that he would have people go and bash up my parents and my family if I didn't do what he wanted to do. I didn't doubt for a minute that he would follow through. And so, in tears, um... He raped me.Karren was trapped aboard Collins' yacht, the 'Pan Pacific', in a remote stretch of islands.There weren't houses, there weren't yachts, there weren't people. They were deserted beaches. And the second night we'd moored up again - an isolated area, and John then started raping me again and dragged me down to his room and continued the rape down there. And then the third night the same thing happened. And during the day I'd keep Robbie near me, so to keep him away. But it was really difficult, because how much do you yell when you've got an 8-year-old boy there, you know? How much do you inflict on him?It was only when the yacht reached Hamilton Island that Karren saw a chance to escape, boarding a ferry with the help of a sympathetic stranger. By the time she spoke to her mother, Collins had already given his version of events.She said that John had phoned her and that he'd told her I'd jumped ship. So I didn't feel I could go to the police. I never reported anything. My parents didn't believe me - so if they didn't believe me, who was going to believe me?He was a 46-year-old successful, rich businessman, and I was a 17-year-old kid.

For the young Michelle Box, it was the mid 80's, she'd just moved out of home and, like Karren, was just trying to find work.It wasn't like he plucked me off the street and dragged me off into his car. It was so open, and there were people around, and I was just - I just let him get past. I just didn't see it, I didn't pick up on it.So you went to the yacht for your job interview, what happened?I took a seat on the settee and he asked me a few questions and I turned to look at him, and he leaned in, and I thought - in that split second I thought, "Oh dear god, he's going to try and kiss me." And I leaned back, and he just threw his body weight across me and pinned me to the back of the settee, and um... Raped me.Once the rape was over, Michelle grabbed her belongings and fled to her car.I didn't know what to do, I didn't know where to go. I wasn't entirely... I couldn't get my head around what had just happened. I couldn't get it straight in my head. I was, you know... And then I just went home. I didn't tell anybody, never reported it. I didn't think anybody would believe me.Really? Not a soul?Not a single soul, no. Never. And so these young women were silenced, and John Collins kept raping. 13 years later, Collins' son was too old for a nanny, so instead he used the daughter of a girlfriend for his cover and as bait. 24-year-old Natalie Davies was a young mum looking for nannying work. As difficult as it is, can you take me through what happened?We sat down and chatted about the job, and he said that he wanted me to be looking after his friend's daughter, and he was going to be writing a book about his life.Natalie's shocking experience is strikingly similar to Michelle and Karren's. This time Collins proposes champagne and spikes Natalie's drink, rendering her completely helpless, unable to escape.Straight away, like within half an hour, "Congratulations you've got the job," I started feeling really weird. My legs were heavy. Just instantly drunk - like that.And was it at that point that he raped you?It was later. He's just pushed me down, and um, I was keeping - cause I had long pants on, and zips, and I'm holding my - my pants up. I'm kicking him off. I had my knees all the way up to the chest, and um, yeah. And I don't really remember what happened after that.And so you you've woken up on the boat the next day.Yeah.And what have you - what's happened then?My head was still blurry. I was in disbelief. I couldn't believe what had happened, and then it happened again.Waiting for Collins to fall asleep after he attacked her for the second time, Natalie fled the yacht and went to a rape crisis centre. As a precaution she took the morning after pill, but even so, seven weeks later the distress of what happened was compounded when Natalie found she was pregnant to Collins. How - how horrified were you when you discovered you were pregnant?It was my worst nightmare. It just made it so much worse for me, because I had to have a needle three times a day every day until I had the termination - because I was just so physically sick. I couldn't wait to get rid of it.Despite the trauma of what she was going through, Natalie was determined to use her pregnancy as proof against Collins.I was at the clinic and waiting all day to have the termination, I was sitting there, and I'm watching two armoured guards with guns with an eski, and I knew what they were there for, so...To get the DNA evidence?Yes. Yep.Natalie wasn't the only victim fighting back. At the same time, another young woman who'd also been raped, and who was also pregnant to Collins, went to the media, sparking an avalanche of similar claims.I happened to sit down that morning and open up the newspaper and read the first few lines and saw his name, and realised that there were so many others. And by me not reporting it, I had potentially put all of these other girls in harm's way, and changed their lives in some way forever because I didn't come forward.

forward.Coming up - the net closes in on John Collins.He had to - he had to be in jail.Only for Australia's worst serial rapist to completely disappear.He absconded. The case goes cold.We don't know where.But one cop, and these women, just won't give up. Are you ok?Yeah.That's next on 60 Minutes. This program is not captioned.

Welcome back to 60 Minutes, and the story of a brave group of women who won't give up their fight for justice. John Collins was a sexual predator who lured them into a brazen trap. He promised a glamorous life at sea, only to drug and rape his victims. For decades he somehow got away with it, until several women found the courage to come forward. But then Collins disappeared, slipping the net. What he didn't count on was the determination of his victims - and one tenacious copper. After one of his victims went public in 2000, another 11 women came forward to accuse John Collins of sexual assault, making him Australia's worst serial rapist. But before he could be questioned, Collins gave police the slip, fleeing Queensland aboard his yacht the 'Pan Pacific'. His yacht got sailed out of the Gold Coast and he was reunited with it, we don't know where. First thing I believe it was in Melbourne.So he got somebody to sail it for him?Or he walked in himself and sailed it off. I'd say more likely he got somebody to sail it for him.And so, visiting various marinas and using a number of aliases, Collins managed to disappear. Years passed, but in 2006 Senior Constable Tony Heptinstall was assigned what was by then a cold case file. He immediately set out to build a profile of the predator he was investigating by speaking to many of the women who'd made complaints to police. Can you imagine the terror of being on this boat and being, you know, this plaything of this predator with no way of escaping? I mean, must have been horrifying.He was just an evil man who we literally had to stop - stop him doing what he was doing. 'Cause he just left a lot of misery in his wake. You know, he tore lives apart.Since he disappeared in 2000, John Collins may have changed his name, but he hadn't changed his behaviour. And this was exactly how Tony tracked him down to Port Lincoln in South Australia. Unbelievably, Collins was up to his old tricks, advertising for and attacking women. Six years after he'd fled, and 20 years since his first known attack, Collins was finally arrested and extradited to Queensland to face court. Collins may have been in custody, but the pain was not over. His arrest was just the beginning of a legal and emotional battle that would test the strongest of his victims. He tried his best to avoid justice by employing every possible tactic to delay the legal process. He claimed he was mentally unfit to stand trial and when that failed he sacked his legal counsel. While this monster manipulated the justice system for the next six long years, the women he attacked went on suffering, dreading every court appearance and fearing that Collins might even get away with it.You know, it's embarrassing. It's humiliating to have to lay that sort of personal thing open for strangers to scrutinise and make judgements about.So why did you do it? Why did you go through with it?I couldn't not. When I knew that there were so many other girls - look, it would've been so easy to just go, "Oh, I'm just going to let somebody else deal with this, it's too hard." I'm just not that sort of person to walk away from something like that, when I knew that there was a chance I could make right what I didn't do in the first place.What was it like for you to come face to face with him in court?My first time was at the committal hearing, and I did think I'd be OK, but I wasn't. It was very, very difficult because he was there, he was chuckling, he was giggling, he was manoeuvring, making faces and things like that. He was free on bail, so he was allowed to sit in the public gallery while we were questioned at the committal hearing.Yeah.As a member of the public.And it was - it was very daunting and very hard. Yeah.We're talking about girls who've had to bat up literally year after year, with the delays we had in their committal process, the delays in the trial. Every time I ring them, it'd put shockwaves through them.For Tony and his boss, Superintendent Cameron Harsley, another frightening concern is there are countless other victims who are reluctant to come forward. What was it about this man, about his psyche, that made him think that he could get away with it?I think a very confident person, who set up a very credible story, who has gone about controlling and selecting victims. And there's certainly no question in my mind there'll be other instances that we aren't aware of. The rapes police know about were committed by Collins when he was between the ages of 47 and 61, but there are many years when Collins dropped off the grid, and authorities simply can't account for him. Do you believe that he committed his first rape as a 47-year-old?I think, doing this job as long as I have, I realise that sex offenders don't just become sex offenders. They usually become sex offenders young, and a sex offender traditionally only gets worse in their life. They never get better.But after nearly three decades of attacking women, Collins has now lost all opportunity to rape again. In April, a jury delivered justice for Michelle, Natalie, Karren, and the other brave women who'd suffered so terribly. Collins was sentenced to 20 years in jail, to serve a minimum of 16 years. By the time he gets out he'll be 90. He quite seriously chose the wrong women to attack?He really did, he so did. Definitely.It's been a long and arduous journey for these women, who survived not only John Collins, but also a lengthy fight for justice with the help of Senior Constable Tony Heptinstall. So when you see these women gathered here today, what do you see? I mean, obviously beautiful faces, but... Friends, great survivors, very strong women. With my absolute admiration, yeah.You're getting teary on us.Oh, I'm just - oh, I'm so grateful. I'm so grateful that, you know, this case fell on the right person's desk and that he took this journey with us. I feel very fortunate, I think to have - to have come across a man like Tony Heptinstall. Made a big difference to us.Despite all the obstacles, it's a fight all these women say they would go through again to see Collins finally behind bars. Do you hate him?I hate him. I want him to rot in hell, so... But very happy now, you know? Very happy. Now I feel free. I feel free of him. It felt like the judge gave us back what he stole from us. I would hope that anybody who's been in the same predicament as ours, I really hope that they will come forward.If they don't come forward, at least they know we've got justice for them.I think, I know when I walked into the courtroom that day, that I felt like I was carrying every single one of those other ladies. That I was trying to be their voice, because they couldn't be there. It was the least I could do. And I hope that, you know, they see this and I hope that they feel the same relief, and satisfaction, I guess, that we do - that he's where he belongs.

And as if these women haven't suffered enough, their ordeal looks set to continue - with the news that John Collins will appeal his conviction. The appeal date is set for the 27th of September.

It's an extraordinary career path - one day a dashing pop star, the next day a fair-dinkum physicist. But, as you'll see, Brian Cox - or Professor Brian Cox - is an extraordinary man. In Britain, he's become hot by making science cool.

And as proof, a new generation of geeks is buying microscopes and telescopes like there's no tomorrow, even though Brian reckons that we've probably got five billion more years of tomorrows. Now, the mop-topped Professor has arrived here - a celebrity tour to convince young Australians that it's hip to be square. 200 years ago, when Sydney was just a tent-town, Albemarle in London became the first one-way street in the world. They did it to ease the horse-and-carriage gridlock caused by the enormous popularity of this place - the home of science, the Royal Institution.This is what should happen. All traffic should stop when scientists speak.Back in Georgian England, scientists were celebrated like rock stars.You have to wash. I don't want to be responsible for you never washing. Today, it's a rock star turned scientist who's being mobbed. Professor Brian Cox, particle physicist and much more.He's a genius.A genius, is he?Thank you very much.You think that scientists should be celebrities? As much as sportsmen, or...Yes. Yes. Why would I want the only celebrities to be sportspeople and actors and pop stars, if I think science is more important than sports and film and pop stars?So you're happy to be up there with Ronaldo, or up there with- I want more of them. -Beckham and- Not just me, I want more.I mean, there's Sir David Attenborough, of course, there's Stephen Hawking. But you need these people.What's your favourite planet in the universe, except Earth?It's good that you said except Earth, because I would have said Earth.This is where Britain's legendary scientists have long hung out.I think, at the moment, Mars.And today, Brian Cox rightly takes his place amongst them. Is science tricky? We have the image it's hard, we have the image it's old men and it's geekish and it's nerdish.Yeah. And that's a very... It's not true for a start, that image of science being dominated by old men. It comes, I think, from Einstein, this iconic figure with grey hair and no socks. And that's - I think it's really a destructive picture, actually, because who wants to be in a field that's dominated by old men? Truth is, it isn't.

In order to understand where we came from, we have to understand events that happened in the first few seconds of the life of the universe.Brian Cox is more than just a celebrity, he's a serious science heavyweight and he wants to make his own big bang.In this single instant, Betelgeuse will release more energy than our sun will produce in its entire lifetime.And what better way than these epic BBC documentaries, explaining the last 13 billion years of existence.10,000 trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion years.Believe it or not, Brian Cox is 45 years young, but with his mop-top and his lean boy-band-looks- Apparently we've got 5 million years before the end of the world. -this physics professor can still pass as a keyboard-playing pop-star - which is exactly what he used to be.I discovered music really not because I liked playing it. I was never taught an instrument, but I wanted to be a pop star basically, so I discovered bands, rock 'n' roll based- Because of girls? Yeah, partly. And then the whole thing that goes around rock 'n' roll, I liked. And so I learned to play keyboards to be in a band.

The science textbooks were cast aside and the touring began. The band was called D'Ream, best remembered for their number one hit, 'Things Can Only Get Better'. But just when things couldn't get any better musically, Brian found himself missing science and, oddly enough, Australia played a part in getting him back into it.The band went to Australia to do a big tour, and it was that choice to make. "Do you want to carry on doing a physics degree, or do you want to go and be a pop star in Australia?" And I chose the physics degree, and I'm glad I did.But you could've been with the Beatles?The band didn't become the Beatles though. The band split up shortly afterwards, so it would have been a complete disaster.Wandering through the British Science Museum, crowded with young enthusiasts, Cox is like a kid in a toy shop himself.That's the great thing about these places - that you wander through knowledge. You wander through the history of ideas.He finds the space junk - like the old men on the moon, the astronauts - simply irresistible. Actually, I met Armstrong before he died, and he's the one person I'm absolutely star struck - and I've never been star struck before. As a physicist, I'm fascinated by how the laws of nature that shaped all this also shape the worlds beyond our home planet.In his spectacular television series, Cox has done something which TV doesn't normally do.In about the same amount of time it takes this prison block to crumble, the entire star falls in on itself.

He challenges us to think about things, even when there are no clear-cut answers. Do you know what happens deep inside a black hole? No.Could an asteroid blow us up tomorrow?Absolutely. I think actually asteroid strike and comet strikes are the biggest threat to civilisation.Does the universe have a conscience?Well, that's a more difficult question because - it's an important question because people, we, are physical structures in the universe, and we have a conscience, right? So in that sense, in the sense that I am a physical part of the universe, then yes.And the biggest questions of all - where did we come from? And are we alone? You say that - that we arose from star dust. We are from just dust?Well we did, I mean, we are - the elements out of which we are made, other than hydrogen, had to be cooked in stars.Is that still- So you need to be- -that blows me away, when you say that.It's beautiful, it's very beautiful, but then you look at how those, those - that star stuff assembled itself into complex living things, and it took - it took over 3 billion years on earth. Those stars will burn for billions of years, until their voracious hunger for fuel forces them to blow up, to become giants.That's amazing, isn't it? It's absolutely amazing.I often think actually that there's - there's a question, are we alone in the universe? And let's say in terms of civilisations, are we the only one? Well if we are, then it makes us unbelievably valuable. But the flipside is also true - if there are other civilisations out there, then our behaviour looks rather idiotic. We're like a little village fighting amongst ourselves, what are we doing? Why are we not one earth in this sea of civilisations? The only way you can behave as we do, which is myopically, is not to ask the question, "Are we alone?" Just not care about the question, because the moment you ask it, you find out we're either on our own in this possibly infinite universe, in which case we'd better take our responsibilities seriously, or we're not, in which case we'd better take our responsibilities seriously.Brian Cox has doubled the BBC's science audience and he's directly responsible for what's now called the "Cox factor".Yeah, I just thought I'd pop in and say hello, really.

hello, really.From primary school kids to Uni students, there's a new passion for physics.How many of you think you might be scientists? But forget the fame and the fortune, this professor is driven by a pure, unadulterated love of science. What is this?This is one of the most iconic rooms in the history of science, because it's - it's real. It looks like a film set, but it isn't. It's Faraday's laboratory.Michael Faraday?So this is where Michael Faraday arguably invented the modern world. Cox is in awe of Dr Michael Faraday, a humble chemist, who, in this room, helped produce the electric motor, the generator, and discovered the world of electro-magnetic fields.It shows you what science and engineering are about. And if you have a vision and you passionately believe that progress comes from investigating nature, it's embodied in this building.For two centuries the venerable Royal Institution has been the symbol of what Brian Cox likes to call simple science. But what makes this mild-mannered physicist angry is when politics dirties the truth. Are we changing the climate of our planet?Yes. Yes. No question?There's no question because it is very, very simple physics. It's not even degree-level physics, it's- Why is there debate? Well, the debate - the debate is about how much we're changing it. But for someone who is not involved in climate science, which is very difficult, to start saying, "Well, I don't believe that," - that's a nonsensical position. It's, it's ridiculous, you've got, - there's got to be a basis for your objection. What worries me is that the science is under attack for political reasons, and that's nonsensical.Alright, your other great anti-science issue are the creationists, those who say that this Earth was made 6,000 years ago.Yeah, well, that's just drivel. I mean, there's nothing that- So this is just dopey? It's nonsense - it's literally nonsense. I mean, we have a huge shortage of scientists and engineers in Britain.With all his brutal honesty, Brian Cox warns we have to drastically change our attitude towards science because, he insists, science is the only way forward.I've a very explicit agenda. Everybody knows I have an agenda. I want more investment in science. I want more people to do science. I want more people to appreciate science and engineering. I want more girls to go into science and engineering. I want more - the public to support it because I think our country, and in general the civilisation that we have here, will be better if it's more scientific.Brian Cox is clearly a man on a mission. Being a television supernova is an essential part of his science crusade. Do you love what you do? Yes.With a passion?Yes, absolutely.Do you accept credit for making geeks cool and nerds acceptable?Yeah, I - you know, the - parts of it, I suppose. Geek is now a badge of honour, as it should be.

This program is not captioned. Welcome back to 60 Minutes. In case you hadn't noticed, Australia is tickled Pink. Once again the enigmatic singer has taken up residence, and during this current national tour she'll perform to more than half a million Aussies. It's hard to imagine her trumping her 2009 tour, when she hung from ropes and performed death-defying stunts, but that's exactly what she's done. As they say in the music industry, Pink broke here before anywhere else. She's practically an honorary Australian. So, perhaps it's not surprising that an Aussie has been instrumental in guiding her career from the earliest days.Here we go! Show one.

(SONG) Blow me one last kiss.

It's two hours of hair-raising, death-defying light and noise. Pink is back. The circus is in town.

I'm very proud of all the touring that we're able to do, and people always ask me, "Why do people in Australia like you?" I'm like, "I don't know." But the way I put it is it's usually an energy in the crowd and, I'd say, and I'm not bullshitting you, Australia has that energy.

I'm very proud of all the touring that we're able to do, and people always ask me, "Why do people in Australia like you?" I'm like, "I don't know." But the way I put it is it's usually an energy in the crowd and, I'd say, and I'm not bullshitting you, Australia has that energy. It's like group therapy. It's like group therapy. Group therapy with 20,000 people. Totally. We're all going through, it's awesome.But before Pink goes anywhere near a stage, there are the days, weeks and months of rehearsals. The only audience here is Pink's most inner circle - the road crew, her manager, Australian Roger Davies, and husband Carey Hart.

We're a very self-contained unit and a well-oiled machine and we take it very seriously. We have a lot of fun, there's a lot a love, and it's all good. It's working.

Unbending commitment, combined with her signature chutzpah, has made Pink's live shows legendary - swinging and singing from the rafters.

I didn't even care if anyone liked it.

I was like, "This is awesome!" I like being scared. It will get me through a tour when I'm bored and I have something to be scared of. And it's beautiful and I can sing upside down.And you do sing upside down, don't you?I sing upside - I sing better upside down than I do right side!

It's all a long way from the young Alecia Moore, before the aspiring star morphed into Pink. And from those earliest days, she's been managed by music veteran, Australian Roger Davies.

Roger, what was it about Pink, the diamond in her, that you said, "I can do something with you?" She just had an energy and something unique about her, and a charisma, a presence. You took her on. Did you expect it to be where it is today? Well, it took a while before we got there. After meeting her, you know, she said, "I've got some songs," and she gave me a vision of what she wanted to do, which was very exciting. And then we - she said, "I want to do a different album than the last one I did with my record company, and you've got to tell them I'm not doing another album like that." And we did 'Missundaztood' and it sort of sort of exploded. And, no, I didn't, none of us knew it was going to be that big.Roger's no stranger to big acts - he's managed everyone from Tina Turner to Janet Jackson. But the one-time roadie has made a career out of keeping out of the spotlight and letting his stars grab all the attention.If you look at his roster and what he's done - Tina Turner, Cher, Sade, Janet Jackson, Joe Cocker, I mean it's quite a stall of legends. And then I come in, this little obnoxious brat. Like, "Tour? Does that mean I have to work hard?" And you know, he's put a team together for me, I've inherited so many incredible people through him and he's just groomed me to be a champion.Now, as this champion tours Australia with her family, she's cementing her standing as a stellar performer, and one who'll be here for years to come.

for years to come.She's a great live performer. I say this because I managed Tina for so long - Tina Turner. But she has that stage presence. She's like a young Tina from that point of view.Does she have that longevity in her as well? Oh, absolutely, and she's got, she's the real deal.

And the adoring fans agree that Pink is all real.I did a show somewhere small, a small, small venue, and a girl in the front row was like, "I can't hear you. Tell them to turn your (BLEEP) vocals up." I was like, "That's why I love Australia." And that's why Australia... That's why we get each other, because we're just honest.
