Delta Goodrem is set to headline this year's Carols By Candlelight at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne.
Delta is heading back home to Australia for Christmas from her base in New York and then she and boyfriend, Irish crooner Brian McFadden, will make a permanent move back down under early next year.
Delta says she is keen to make the move back to Australia so she can lay-low a bit and give her fans a break from her.
"I think it is time I came back home. I really felt I needed to give people a bit of space," she said. "Everything happened in such a short space of time. It was very busy and very crazy, all within a space of three years. "I think I was around so much for a little while there, I really felt that people were getting sick of me."
Anthony Callea, Dannii Minogue and Hi-5 will also be performing at this year's carols on Christmas Eve.
