Do you remember the popular song “All About That Bass”? The hit track’s singer will be a part of the celebrity judge panel on this season of Australian Idol. Before the show begins, let’s test your Meghan Trainor knowledge, how much do you already know about the star?
This quiz isn’t about getting the answers right or wrong, rather learning where Trainor came from and what else she’s been on. Without further delay, let’s meet Meghan Trainor!
Australian Idol is definitely not a new show, but Trainor is one of the newest judges. Although she’s new to the series, she’s no stranger to the world of talent shows. She has also been apart of The Four: Battle for Stardom in 2018 and The Voice UK in 2020, and Clash Of The Cover Bands in 2021. It will be great to see her as a judge again in this upcoming show!
Meghan Trainor’s Music Career
Some people might’ve thought that Trainor would become a one hit wonder after “All About That Bass,” but she actually did the opposite. As soon as that track gained popularity, she began sharing other songs like “Lips Are Moving” and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” which features John Legend. I promise, you’ve definitely heard at least one Meghan Trainor song.
On top of her experience in talent competition shows, she’s also had quite the career. After rising to fame in 2014, she had multiple other hit tracks and even received the first GRAMMY of her career in 2016. At the 58th GRAMMY awards, Trainor won the title of “Best New Artist.” She was also received nominations for “Record and Song Of The Year.”
Following her GRAMMY, she released an R&B album, Thank You. This album was inspired by the music of Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, and Bruno Mars. Even though it got mixed reviews, the album debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart. This album was extremely different than her previous album, Title. Title contained thick bubblegum-pop, 2014 vibe. In my opinion, it was very similar to Ariana Grande‘s music at the beginning of her career.
Since Thank You‘s release, Trainor has gone on to release Treat Myself and A Very Trainor Christmas in 2020. On top of her singing she’s also dipped her toes into the world of voice acting. She’s been characters in, the 2017 film Smurfs: The Lost Village and the 2019 film Playmobil: The Movie.
In 2022, Trainor released her newest album, Takin’ It Back. This album features the new TikTok hit “Made You Look.”
