    Suzie McNeil (born October 15, 1978) is a Toronto-based rock / soul vocalist.

    In 2005 McNeil was a contestant on the CBS reality show Rock Star: INXS, a televised competition to find a new lead singer for the band INXS. McNeil made it to the final four of the competition and was the last female singer to be eliminated.

    During the course of the competition, McNeil gained a great deal of respect from the INXS band members as well as the fans. She was nicknamed 'Sweet Suzie McNeil' by show host Dave Navarro. The band INXS was impressed by her talent as well as her tenacity. Despite her rave reviews, Suzie faced the Bottom Three a total of six times throughout the competition, prompting her to create a hat which read "Queen of the Bottom Three." In the Bottom Three, contestants sang INXS songs. McNeil excelled at singing INXS songs, likely explaining her survival of so many eliminations. Some standout performances throughout the show (excluding her INXS songs) were the The Rolling Stones', "Start Me Up", R.E.M.'s hit "Losing My Religion" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." During the competition, McNeil performed an original song called "Soul Life" which she co-wrote with fellow Rock Star: INXS contestant Ty Taylor. Suzie met her elimination in the Final Four, where there was much speculation that INXS had finally agreed upon a male lead singer. On September 24, 2005, McNeil performed a sold-out show at the Revival Club in Toronto.

    McNeil is featured on a few tracks on INXS' album Switch. Examples are "Us" and "God's Top Ten."

    In January 2006, Suzie moved to Los Angeles, California where she is developing her music career. On January 26, 2006 she announced plans to record her first CD with Executive Producer John Kalodner and Producer Marti Frederiksen. In the summer of 2006, Suzie performed as a backup singer for Pink on Pink's North American tour. She has just joined "King Ben's Injection of Perfection" on a radio station in Sydney, Australia, as King Ben's Rockstar Correspondent.

    Suzie's first single, "Believe", is available to download on iTunes. It has been featured on NBC's promo for "The Biggest Loser" reality weight-loss show as well as throughout season 4 of Beauty and the Geek. The song was exclusively debuted by "King Ben's Injection of Perfection" in Sydney on the 9th September, 2006, to positive reaction.

    Suzie appears on Matt Nathanson's last album Some Mad Hope. She sings background vocals on the songs "Sooner Surrender" and "Bulletproof Weeks." She also appears on Clay Aiken's album A Thousand Different Ways as a guest vocalist on "I Want to Know What Love Is", a cover of the Foreigner song.

    Suzie's single "Hung Up" has gained a lot of radio airplay, especially in Canada, and it is also available on iTunes. The music video was released to MuchMoreMusic on the week of February 19th, 2007 and was uploaded to Youtube on February 10th, 2007.

    Suzie appeared as the character Oz in the Canadian production of "We Will Rock You" at the Canon Theatre in Toronto until August 1, 2007.

    In March of 2008, MTV Cribs in Canada featured a segment on the house Suzie shares with friend and fellow Rock Star: INXS contestant Tara Slone.

    In May 2008, Suzie released her third music video, "Lonely (Are You Coming Home?)".

    Suzie reappeared in the Canadian production of "We Will Rock You" at the Canon Theatre in Toronto, not as a cast member, but as an audience member.

    She serves as one of the three judges on YTV's The Next Star.
