Australian Idol fans may recall one of season three's most memorable contestants Lee Harding.
The pop punk singer wowed TV audiences with energetic renditions of songs like Eye Of The Tiger before his first post-Idol single Wasabi shot to number one on the ARIA charts.
Although he placed third in 2005, Lee was a fan favourite and enjoyed moderate success, going on to tour as a support act for Shannon Noll and INXS before his star power faded.
But fans of the coloured hair aficionado can rejoice – after months of rumours, Lee has officially confirmed he'll be back on our screens.
Taking to his Instagram, Lee announced he's having another crack at a singing show, writing: "Auditioned for The Voice this year.. eek.. haha."
Accompanying the announcement was a photo of a Voice promo which featured a figure with their face obscured.

Lee shared the same snap to his Facebook page as he again announced the news.
"Who has two arms in the air and auditioned for The Voice this year? This guy," he penned.
In yet another post, he added of the promo: "Who's that guy at the end holding up the logo with what appears to be magic??"

Lee, who seems to have given the multi-coloured locks a miss this time around, was first rumoured to be taking part in the new season of The Voice when filming for the Channel Nine show kicked off in February this year.
Lee will be facing off against former reality stars such as Jack Vidgen, Prinnie Stevens and Sheldon Riley, who will be all taking their second shot at fame.
