Scott Cain (born 2 April 1981) is the winner of the third Australian Popstars competition in 2002.

In his earlier years he was a member of a band named Funkapation, who released the album Peanut Butter Brick in 2000. In the same year Funkapation competed in the Hastings Valley Battle of the Bands earning Scott the award for Best Vocalist. He first entered the charts with his version of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition", which was featured on a Popstars Final 7 compilation single that peaked at #7. His first solo single after winning the competition was "I'm Moving On", which reached #1 and spent some time on the charts afterwards. However Cain's stardom quickly diminished; despite protest from the artist "Crazy People Rock" was released as the follow-up single proving much less successful, peaking only at #36. Cain had intended to release own song "Perfect Day" as the second single but was denied the opportunity by his then record label Warner Music Australia. "Perfect Day" was not heard in its original form until Scott's 2004 Album Roller Coaster. His album release Controlled Folly peaked at #49 before sinking to #123 and disappearing entirely. Both of his initial singles are notable for having been written by Gregg Alexander of New Radicals fame. He also released the non-album single "Oceans in Between", a song based upon the events of 11 September 2001.This was a collaboration with Vents limited to 1,000 copies and released only through his website. Scott also performed this song at various charity events.

In 2003, he began hosting the AMTV show on the Disney Channel,[1][2] and released the song "Step into My World" on a Roadshow compilation. He won Best New Talent at the 2004 ASTRA awards, beating out other finalists including James Mathieson and Andrew G ~ a public vote saw Scott Cain again win the public support for his role on AMTV Disney Channel take him home the award. The following year, Cain signed with ABC Kids and soon released his second album entitled Roller Coaster, which secured him success with the song Hilary Duff and later that year he secured the support act for Hilary Duff on her national Australian tour.

Scott Cain and Danielle Stearman featured in a film clip for Australian Band 'The Millionaires' for a song Danielle co-wrote with lead singer Jordan Cade called 'Wrong Guy'.

Scott Cain and Danielle Stearman started dating during Popstars and in 2011, after almost 10 years together, they became engaged and welcomed a baby boy, Max. This is Cain's second child, he also has a daughter named Zoe who was born when he was 19 years old.
