This morning, the official SBS announcement took place in the iconic Sydney Opera House. After weeks of rumours about who will get the chance to represent Australia in their ‘one-off’ appearance in Europe’s favourite contest, we can finally reveal that it’s Guy Sebastian who will represent Australia!
SBS opted for an internal selection, whereby they approached different record labels in order to find the best option to represent Australia. Both the artist and song have been carefully selected by SBS, who are taking this opportunity seriously – we want to create history! We want to win!
The song that Guy will be singing will most likely be off his latest album, but he hopes it will represent Australia as a nation, and be either super fun, or a huge ballad which showcases his voice.
Guy says he has ideas on how he will perform his entry, even though he hasn’t decided on a song yet. He tested different ideas on his recent national tour, and he hopes to utilise the massive Eurovision stage.
Australia’s participation is a first for Eurovision, but will it be the last? Either way, we are excited to show Europe what we’ve got, and Guy Sebastian is the perfect candidate to present to the Eurovision stage.
