So many years have gone by and was so excited at the opportunity to meet her again... It was even BETTER when I won the competition to sit in the front and be the first to meet her... It was amazing and it was awesome that I got to introduce Delta to the two most important people in my life... My little boy goes crazy when Delta (and Seal) are on the voice (seriously! Lol)... Had a fantastic night and needless to say, I was ecstatic I FINALLY got my photo :-D

After all these years Delta is exactly the same person at her instores - TOTALLY ABOUT THE FANS!!
I was just on time, finishing work at 5pm and then getting the Westfield Garden City like crazy in peak hour traffic was a NIGHTMARE! However, i arrive just at 6pm and they announced she was minutes away! PHEW!
The crowd was INSANE! It really takes me back to the old days when thousands would turn up and it amazed me still how many people love our girl and was there to see her! Unfortunately getting there so late meant being quite far away and im pretty short so at times it was hard to see, but regardless i wouldn't have missed it!
She apologised at the beginning as her throat was still sore but she sang so beautifully! All her performances of 'Sitting on Top of The World', 'Born To Try', 'In The Life' where stunning! And a special surprise medley of 'Predictable' (Haha and she said she ran into the guy she wrote it about recently), 'Not Me, Not I' & 'Out Of The Blue' then finishing with THE BIGGEST SURPRISE EVER... 'UNCOVERED!!!'
It was just breathtaking!
The signing began about 6.40ish and it was CRAZY! The trooper Delta is, as always, promised to stay there until everyone was seen! Amazing!
A boy about the age of 16/17 went up to see her, handed her a rose and they were speaking for a while. Delta then announced over the microphone that he had just asked her to his formal! Sooo sweet! Delta said' And i told him, if im in Australia I WILL GO!'
Delta's mum Lea was also around, hanging in the back and talking to some fans. It was awesome to see her again, she had disappeared by the end so i didn't get a chance to have a quick chat but she looked beautiful as always!
After about 2.5 nearly 3 hours i finally had made my way to the beginning of the line and got my time with Delta. Still so happy & her gorgeous smile glowing. We had an awesome chat, she remembered me from the old days and we talked about it and a few other things. Even shared a joke about becoming on of her 'Gay Husbands' Haha. Time was of the essence so i didn't want to take up too much of her time. She was so grateful for everyone still waiting.
There was still quite a big group of people still waiting when i left shortly after, so i'd imagine she would have been there for atleast another hour or 2.
I do have a few videos from the performance which ill try and get up ASAP, as i said though from the back its a bit far away however you can hear everything beautifully!

My favourite part of Uncovered is the end of the chorus where she sings "Here I am discover(ed?) ....Here I am uncovered (powerful dragged out note) then the following Here I Am uncovered (in a softer, quieter tone). It's one of my favourite vocal things she does when she plays around with the notes like that.
