Natalie Jane Imbruglia ( ) (born February 4, 1975) is an Australian singer-songwriter, model and actress.

In the early 1990s, Imbruglia was known to audiences as Beth Brennan Willis in the popular Australian soap Neighbours. Three years after leaving the program, Imbruglia launched a singing career with the international hit, "Torn". The subsequent debut album Left of the Middle (1997) sold over 6 million copies worldwide. While following releases, White Lilies Island (2001) and Counting Down the Days (2005), have been unable to match the commercial success of her debut, the latter became her first UK #1. Her fourth studio album Come to Life, was released on October 2, 2009, but failed to impact any chart positively.

She co-starred in the 2003 film Johnny English and made her leading actress debut in the 2009 film Closed for Winter.

She was recently announced as a judge and mentor on the Australian version of the The X Factor.
