Catfish And The Bottlemen Twice

As far as success stories go, any situation where you're sleeping in your car one day and topping iTines charts the next is a pretty big deal.

Meet Aussie singer Roshani Priddis. 

She moonlights as a singing teacher and lives in her car with her partner in Sydney, Australia. 

She auditioned for Australian X-Factor this past weekend and the bended the rules in her favour. 

We are actually living in our car at the moment. We’re living in a rooftop tent and we literally got up at 4am to go to the bathroom and my partner checked his phone and was like, ‘Oh my God, you’re at the top of the iTunes Blues Chart!

Roshani went against X-Factor rules by performing an original song. Initially she was told that she could not appear on the show if she didn't do a cover but then the producers took a risk which totally paid off for the singer. They allowed her to perform a song she had written on her own and the next day she was number 1 on the iTunes Australia Blues chart. 

So, let's recap. A music teacher living in her car went on one audition and went straight to the top of her country's Blues chart in less than a day. Truly wild. 

Watch her incredible audition below.
