Dami Im is a 24 year-old contestant from Daisy Hill, Queensland who sang "Hero" by Mariah Carey at her audition. Im was initially eliminated during the super bootcamp stage, but was called back for the home visits to replace Matt Gresham who decided he could not commit to the competition. She was born in South Korea and migrated to Australia at the age of nine, with her mother and younger brother. Im's father stayed in South Korea to send the family money. Her parents now live together, spending part of the year in Australia and part in South Korea. At the age of 11, Im began studying at the Young Conservatorium of Music program at Griffith University. She attended John Paul College in Daisy Hill and graduated in 2005. Im is a member of the Brisbane Full Gospel Church in Eight Mile Plains, Queensland. In 2010, she released an album titled, Dream, which was recorded to raise money for church endeavours. Im met Noah Kim, a former Korean military serviceman, at the church and they were married in Seoul in late 2012.
Aside from singing, Im is also a violin player and pianist. She became the National Finalist of the Yamaha Youth Piano Competition, and won the Nora Baird Scholarship and the Queensland Piano Competition several times. In 2009, Im graduated from the University of Queensland with first class honours for her Bachelor of Music. She cites Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Norah Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae and Chris Tomlin as her musical influences. Prior to entering The X Factor, Im was a music and piano teacher. Following the eliminations of Cat Vas and Barry Southgate, Im became the only remaining contestant in the Over 24s category.
