Three more artists have been announced for Eurovision: Australia Decides in February 2022.
Former The Voice artists Sheldon Riley and girl group G-Nat!on, plus pop performer Andrew Lambrou will perform original songs in their chance to represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy.
They join three previously announced artists Paulini, Jaguar Jonze, and returning act Isaiah Firebrace (who will be singing a duet with a yet to be revealed performer).
Sheldon Riley said, “It has always been the highlight, waking up at 5am every year to watch from Australia. Growing up on the Gold Coast, watching Conchita for the first time was proof to me that the world will choose different if given the chance to see it. I am different but I have found my place on mainstream television where I never fit the mould, on radio that has never played music like mine, festivals you’d never think I’d fit the bill for because I always dare to dream… in my fashion and my music always bringing that little bit of Eurovision magic with me every time. I’m so proud of the artist I am today, wearing my crystal mask in so many parts of the world. It would be an honour to represent Australia and bring my sparkle to Europe! After all these years of dreaming and creating the artist I am today. It’s all coming to life in epic fashion, Live on stage!”
Emma from G-Nat!on said, “We are beyond honoured to be the first ever girl-group to perform at Eurovision: Australia Decides! It is so exciting to be a part of the creativity, inspiration, and diversity that Eurovision brings every year, and we cannot wait to bring our song to life on the national stage. Full of strong harmonies and edgy choreography, our song is a dance-pop explosion set to provide the ultimate live show experience. We hope our performance inspires other young people to be strong, powerful, and confident in themselves – see you on the Gold Coast!”
Andrew Lambrou said, “I’m so thrilled to be a part of Eurovision: Australia Decides 2022! I’ve grown up watching Eurovision with my family, admiring all that goes into it and seeing artists show their craft to the world, and to be a part of this show is like a dream come true. I’m so excited to show Australia my artistry, and to potentially represent my country in this amazing song contest is the most encouraging thought for me.”
More artists are yet to be revealed.
Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey return to host Eurovision: Australia Decides on the Gold Coast on Saturday 26 February, produced for SBS by Blink TV.
