Lankan born Priddis 'no regrets' after Idol booting

Sri Lankan born singer Roshani Priddis has no regrets after being evicted from Australian Idol and says she's looking forward to "working hard" in Sydney and making a name for herself as a soul-funk artist after being booted from the Network Ten TV show on Monday night.

"I'm looking forward to really working hard, and kind of riding the wave," Priddis said. And now that I've got this chance ... I'm not going to let it slip and sit on my bum".

It's the best chance for young artists to get exposure, and I never thought I'd make it this far. The pint-sized Priddis, born in Sri Lanka and raised in Tamworth in northern NSW, said she was planning to hit the ground running as she bases herself in Sydney.

She said the Idol experience provided a great chance for her to launch her career. Working with some of the best people in the industry as well as meeting established pop stars was a highlight. "I mean singing on national television every Sunday night was my job, and I really enjoyed it."

"It was really good to meet with Darren (Hayes) and Cindi (Lauper) and the INXS boys," she said. AAP
