Our very own Courtney Act was recognised as one of the World’s 100 Most Influential People by New York’s OUT magazine on the weekend.

Act (pictured with fellow influential person Rosie O’Donnell) was the only Australian in a star-studded list of honourees, which included Susan Sarandon, Tom Ford and George Michael.

Courtney flies back to Australia this week in time to revisit the show that made her famous outside of Oxford Street, Australian Idol‘s Sunday night grand final.
