We'll continue with a record of Candice and Anthony's journey on It Takes two, 2008

The highly successful singing show It Takes Two returns with ten new celebrities who step outside their comfort zones; test their confidence, vocal chords and battle their nerves as they perform in front of a live audience.
Paired with the cream of Australia?s singers, the celebrities will embark on the experience of a life-time. The couples will compete in a duet-singing showdown, backed by a 19 piece live show band, in a celebration of some of the best songs we know and love. A panel of judges and viewer votes will determine who will be crowned series champion.

The profesional singers performing in the show have achieved the following results between them:
* Over 200 years in the business
* Sold over 27 million records
* Over 50 solo/group albums released
Each celebrity's performance raises funds for the charity of their choice.
It Takes Two is a BBC format, and is a co-production between BBC Worldwide and Seven.




Candice Falzon - Biography

user posted image
Ironwoman
Professional Ironwoman and Surf Life Saver Candice Falzon may have conquered the ocean, but will she make waves with her singing abilities?
?Like a lot of children I grew up dreaming of being a rock star. It Takes Two will allow me to live my dream, at least for a couple of months.?

Candice was literally a beach babe, growing up minutes away from Maroubra Beach in Sydney. Her ensuing love of the water soon saw her parents subsequently enrol her in the local Nippers.

A natural runner, Candice also began swimming training. She combined these two talents by competing in Ironwoman challenges, winning her first state medal as an Under 13.

The same year, she was selected for the Uncle Toby?s Super Series Surf Life Savings Pro Circuit, becoming the youngest ever competitor to turn professional at the age of 14.

Candice went from strength-to-strength and, two years later, was crowned the NSW State Ironwoman Champion after winning four medals in both the board and Ironwoman events.

Candice also competed in the gruelling Coolangatta Gold in 2007 and in 2008 will be competing in the Kelloggs Nutri-grain Ironwoman series.
In her career to date, she has won 60 medals in the Sydney branch titles, over 10 at state titles and six Australian medals.

Candice is also a sought-after model and has been the face of Running Bare sportswear, Rival swimwear and Infiniti Fitness. Profiled in numerous national magazines, Candice appears regularly on television sports programs.

Candice Falzon?s chosen charity is BEYOND BLUE; a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related substance misuse disorders in Australia.

?Beyond Blue raises awareness and assists with identifying the signs of depression. There are so many young people suffering in silence or taking their lives due to depression. It is important that they recognise that there are people who can help and that other people are in a similar situation.?


Anthony Callea - Biography


user posted image
Australia's record-breaking pop star
With Australia?s fastest-selling single of all time under his belt, Anthony Callea has certainly proven he?s more than an Idol.

His extraordinarily precise and emotive performance of The Prayer is still officially the fastest and highest selling Australian single of all time. His ARIA Award winning single shot straight to number one on the official charts where it remained for an amazing five weeks.

Anthony followed his debut single with another multi-platinum number one single and a multi-platinum number one album. He embarked on an international song writing trip for his latest top ten offering - his A New Chapter album - that features two top twenty singles. Anthony also released a Live Concert DVD that later screened as a television music special on Foxtel.

Anthony has embarked on two successful national concert tours and appeared as special guest for touring international superstars including Ms Diana Ross and Westlife.

Anthony has performed for a host of international dignitaries including the late Luciano Pavarotti, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark.

Anthony made his theatre debut in the acclaimed opera production ?Dead Man Walking?, directed by Nigel Jamieson (Sydney 2000 Olympics Opening Ceremony). In November 2007 Anthony played the role of Mark in Perth?s musical production of ?Rent? alongside Tim Campbell and Nikki Webster.

Anthony has accumulated a string of awards including Channel V Artist of the Year, Pop Republic Artist of the Year, an MTV Viewers? Choice Award, Variety?s Young Entertainer of the Year, a MO Award and a Gospel Music Award, just to name a few.

At only 25, Anthony is now one of Australia?s most respected, in-demand and awarded singer/performer.

After guiding radio personality Jo Stanley on an emotional journey that peaked with a final two finish, Anthony will flex his vocal cords again for his return to It Takes Two.
