We first fell in love with Jes Hudak when we heard her song "National Holiday" which won a local talent search which got her a spot to play in 2010's Lilith Fair. Her resume is impressive. She's been on tour and opened for acts such as Maroon 5, Tonic and Five for Fighting. Jes was also named ISSA's Singer/Songwriter of the Year (2009) and won Pop Single of the Year (2009) at the LA Music Awards for her original song "Another Day." After that, she was a contestant on the singer/songwriter reality competition show "Platinum Hit" hosted by Jewel on Bravo where she placed in the top 3.

Jes was recently based in Los Angeles but moved back to her hometown in New York. But we still love her and apparently Australia LOOOOVES her a lot also!!! One of the songs she sings "Different Worlds" has risen in the iTunes Australia chart, currently resting at #11, after it was used in a commercial for "The Voice: Australia." Woo-hoo. I thought The Voice U.S. had really cool judges. Check out the judges they have in Australia - Joel Madden, Seal, Keith Urban and Delta Goodrem. Listen the song and commercial below!!
