Conchita Wurst, former ESC winner has given a concert “From Austria With Love” in the Sydney Opera House, which was sold out. Together with the first Australian ESC performer Guy Sebastian, the secret of who is going to represent Australia in the 2016 ESC has been revealed, it’s Dami. The Korean born singer, is living in Brisbane, Australia, she has won the X-Factor Australia and is very famous right now. She has several #1 hits in Down Under. The song for Stockholm has not been announced yet.
It will be the second time for Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest as an active competitor. With the Australian debut entry “Tonight Again”, a wonderful 5th place could be achieved.
It’s great to see, that a country, which is following the ESC over 30 years is now able to join the competition, even if it’s not Europe. The Australians love the ESC and former ESC singers and winners have been taking part like Johnny Logan, Gina G and Olivia Newton John.
