She married her long-time boyfriend Daniel Johns, lead singer of Silverchair, on December 31, 2003. INXS returned to the news in 2004 when it was announced that a new reality television program titled Rock Star would feature a contest to find a new lead singer for the band. Imbruglia returned to acting in 2002 with a supporting role in British spy spoof Johnny English, playing alongside Rowan Atkinson. However, he left INXS in 2003, only recording a song called I Get Up, released as a single (which charted in the top 100 on the Australian ARIAnet Singles Chart) in the same year, and it was used in the Rugby Union World Cup 2003. In a 1999 cooperation with singer Tom Jones, she appeared on a track of his album Reload. Jon Stevens began singing with INXS in 2000 and was officially named a member of the band in 2002. The follow up came in 2001 with the album White Lilies Island. Since Hutchence's death, INXS has continued, using Jimmy Barnes and Terence Trent D'Arby as temporary lead singers.
Her first single, "Torn" (1997), reached number 2 in the British charts, and her album Left of the Middle became a million seller. On November 22, 1997 Hutchence was found dead in his Sydney hotel room, an apparent victim of suicide (some speculate his death was actually an accident, the result of autoerotic asphyxiation). Like Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue, she also played a role in the soap Neighbours before venturing into a singing career. The band worked closely with several other Australian artists, such as The Models and Jenny Morris, helping to establish their careers. The second of the four daughters of an Italian father and an Australian mother, Natalie grew up on the Central Coast, north of Sydney. Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, INXS was a major force in Australian popular music, leading the way into worldwide popularity for several Australian bands. Natalie Jane Imbruglia (born February 4, 1975) is an Australian singer and actress. 1994 brought the first of many 'Greatest Hits' compilations.
"Cold Air" on Y Tu Mama Tambien (And Your Mother Too) O.S.T. (2001). 1993's Full Moon, Dirty Hearts was their attempt to capitalize on the grunge movement, and while it received mixed reviews, it plunged the band further into obscurity. "Identify" on Stigmata O.S.T (1999). However, the band's belated attempts to follow up on the success of Kick, 1990's X and 1992's Welcome to Wherever You Are found them struggling to stay relevant as alternative rock began to dominate the airwaves and more traditional rockers like INXS (fronted by Hutchence, who lived the rock-star lifestyle by dabbling in film acting and dating several models and public personalities including Kylie Minogue and Paula Yates), fell out of favor. "Never Tear Us Apart" with Tom Jones on Reload (1999). The band's worldwide peak of popularity came with 1987's Kick, a punchy, confident set of pop-rock gems that yielded three top-ten US singles, including the number-one hit "Need You Tonight". "Troubled by the Way We Came Together" on Go O.S.T. (1999). By 1985's breakthrough album Listen Like Thieves the band had perfected a matured sound influenced by The Rolling Stones and U2 but true to the band's original roots in the Aussie pubs; that album spawned several hits, including the top-10 "What You Need".
"Shiver" (21/03/2005). The band, which had started out as a New Wave act featuring more synthesizers than guitar, gradually moved in a more straight-ahead Rock oriented direction through the first half of the 1980s. "Beauty On The Fire" (22/07/2002). INXS and its follow-up, 1981's Underneath the Colours (produced by Richard Clapton) were hits in their native Australia, and their third album, Shabooh Shoobah was released worldwide but it wasn't until their Nick Launay-produced fourth album, The Swing in 1983 that the band received significant attention in the US or UK, as the single "Original Sin" became a minor pop radio hit and the band's charismatic singer Michael Hutchence gained attention for his MTV-ready looks. "Wrong Impression" (11/03/2002). INXS began under the name The Farriss Brothers but the band changed their name to INXS in 1979, just prior to the release of their self-titled debut album in 1980. "That Day" (29/10/2001). The band was formed in 1977 and comprised of Andrew Farriss, Michael Hutchence, Tim Farriss, Jon Farriss, Garry Gary Beers and Kirk Pengilly.
