Which One Of These Talented Singers Will Represent Australia At Eurovision?
The hunt for Australia's next Eurovision representative is underway, with ten local performers in the running for the prestigious opportunity.
SBS and Blink TV have announced the full lineup of artists who are hoping to follow in the footsteps of Kate Miller-Heidke, Guy Sebastian and Dami Im -- just to name a few.
At this point, we'd usually make a joke about why Australia is still getting invited to Eurovision but it seems like everyone's forgotten we're not actually part of the continent (unless they're assuming someone keeps spelling Austria incorrectly).
Anyway, the final four artists have been revealed as 'The Voice 2019' winner Diana Rouvas, 'Australia's Got Talent 2011' winner Jack Vidgen, Darwin singer-songwriter Jordan-Ravi and Taiwanese-Australian multimedia artist Jaguar Jonze.
They'll be joining another six performers hoping to show Europe what they've got -- Vanessa Amorosi, Casey Donovan, Montaigne, Mitch Tambo, iOTA and Didirri.
The 'Eurovision: Australia Decides' final will take place at the Gold Coast on February 8, 2020 and will be broadcast from 8.30pm (AEDT) on SBS -- with the winner heading to Rotterdam in the Netherlands next May.
SBS revealed that Jack Vidgen will be performing his new single "I Am King I Am Queen' -- a personal ballad that he said is a "real representation of me and everything I stand for".
Last year, Kate Miller-Heidke went up against some very stiff competition including Courtney Act, Ella Hooper, and Mark Vincent, winning with her tune "Zero Gravity" and some seriously impressive stagecraft and choreography -- which is what Eurovision is all about!
Miller-Heidke made it all the way to the Eurovision finals in 2019, propping up Australia's reputation as a serious contender in the singing contest but 2020 just might be the year we kick off a global controversy and win the whole damn thing.
