Notes

  • ^ The Bee Gees were born on the Isle of Man, a Crown dependency that is not part of the United Kingdom, and moved to the UK in their early childhood. In 1958, when oldest brother Barry was 12 and twins Robin and Maurice were 9, they moved to Australia and resided there for about ten years before moving back to the UK. This makes the Bee Gees Australian, English and Manx.
  • ^ Olivia Newton-John was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Australia at the age of five. This makes her Australian and British. John Travolta is American and ELO are British.
  • ^ Peter Andre was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Australia at a young age before moving back to the UK after success in the British charts. He is now a British citizen and is of Greek heritage but has also stated he regards himself as British and Australian.
  • ^ Robbie Williams is British and Nicole Kidman is Australian.
  • ^ David Guetta is French and Sia is Australian.
  • ^ Gotye is Belgian/Australian and Kimbra is from New Zealand.
