After last year’s cancellation of the ESC, it has been clear that Montaigne should get another chance this year to represent Australia in Rotterdam. With the new single “Technicolour” Montaigne is able to demonstrate her prowess and adaptability.
The song will presented at the Sydney Mardi Gras, it’s about the universal and personal changes during the pandemic.
SBS Commissioning Editor and Australian Head of Delegation Josh Martin said: “We love this song! SBS has always celebrated the technicolour nature of Australia and the world, and Montaigne has written an anthem that encapsulates all that we stand for as a broadcaster and a country. Where better to premiere it, than one of the world’s most loved Pride events – the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras! The song is positive, purposeful – and let’s face it – fun! It will be right at home at the world’s largest, inclusive technicolour song contest where, to borrow a line from the chorus – ‘if we stand together, we can do whatever’.”
At the moment the song is only available in an audio version, the video clip is going to follow shortly.

About me: My first Eurovision I watched was in 1987, Brussels. Since then I am following the ESC with great enthusiasm. The greatest fascination for me is the fact that the entire Europe is watching the show at that specific night. Since 2010, Oslo I am a member of the eurovisionlive.com team. I had the chance to witness the second German victory with Lena. My biggest wish would be to have the orchestra back, as it used to be until 1998.
