The song “Tonight Again” is a modern R’n’B composition. Even if Guy Sebastian’s voice is more suitable for ballads, as he says, this song will definitely be a song of special attention in Vienna. This is not a typical Eurovision song, but has some instant appeal elements with a catchy chorus.
Guy Theodore Sebastian was born in Klang, Malaysia in 1981 (close to Kuala Lumpur). Until he was six, he lived in Malaysia, then the family immigrated to Australia. Guy has been living in Melbourne and Adelaide. In the age of 14 he has joined a youth choir at church. He was chosen as solo singer. After school he became a singing teacher and tone technician.

His first song “Brought Me Here” immediately went number one in Australia and topped the charts in New Zealand and some Asian countries. This song has been the most sold single in Australia ever. The first album “Just As I Am” did also very well and received six times platinum which means a half million records. Until now Guy has released 8 albums and several singles.

Australia is automatically set in the Grand Final with the Big 5 countries and the host country Austria. As previous mentioned, this Australian entry is a one-off experiment. If this will be successful a possible continuation would be possible.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
