Australia: Listen to Dami Im’s song for Australia Decides 2021 | “Paper Dragon” is out!

During this year’s Australia Decides, Dami Im, who appeared as a guest, revealed that in 2021 she would also participate as a contestant, claiming for the second time the representation of Australia in Eurovision.

Dami Im’s plan was later overturned, as the cancellation of the competition and the decision of the country’s public broadcaster to give Montaigne, the winner of Australia Decides 2020, another chance, resulted in the non-realization of the national final for Australia in 2021. So, if Dami Im really wants to return to Eurovision she will have to wait until 2022.

Dami Im, who signed with a new record label, ABC Music, has revealed that her new single, Paper Dragon, which has been officially released on all digital platforms, is the song with which she would participate in Australia Decides 2021 .

Below you can listen the song:

Could Dami Im with this song achieve a better result than the second place of 2016, with Sound of Silence?

Australia: Montaigne’s song for Eurovision 2021 is ready!

On the 1st of April, SBS has confirmed that Montaigne will have another chance to sing on the Eurovision stage. In fact, the news was not an April Fool’s joke.

Yesterday, Montaigne revealed that she has already written the song with which she will compete in Eurovision 2021.

The news came to light through the singer’s personal Twitter account and you can see it below:

Australia Decides does not stop, as stated by the Australian head of delegation, Josh Martin, in 2022 will return as a method for selecting the song with whom Australia will compete in the contest.

The above news of course means that we will have to wait a year (and something) for the possible return of Dami Im to the Eurovision stage. As she had stated at Australia Decides 2020, where she appeared as a guest, she revealed that would participate in next year’s national final. But the direct assignment to Montaigne means that this will be possible in 2022.

The song with which Australia would be represented at Eurovision 2020 was Don’t Break Me:

Australia: New candidates for Eurovision: Australia Decides

Australia’s public broadcaster, SBS has announced two more candidates for its national final, “Eurovision: Australia Decides”, to be held in Gold Coast on 8 February. These are two more candidates announced, Montaigne and Didirri.

Montaigne

At just 24 years old, Sydney-based Montaigne has become a major name in Australian indie music. In recent years, she has been recognized for her work with several songs on the charts, an ARIA Award and one more nomination for Best Female Artist on her Glorious Heights debut album. COMPLEX’s second album was released in August.

“I am excited about participating in Eurovision: Australia Decides for the opportunity to release myself which is dramatic and extreme. I will be able to do this without a massive international music event as a boost, but in Europe’s big stage in front of millions of viewers it will be all the results of the drama I have inside me. It is an honor to represent my country, of course! I didn’t do that well in football, so it would be cool to do it in music. It’s like the World Cup for pop”

Didirri

Didirri’s debut “EP Measurements” has garnered more than 30 million views and led Didirri to perform at renowned festivals such as “The Great Escape” and “Latitude Festival” in the UK, “Splendor In The Grass” in Australia and the “Sound Primavera” in Barcelona. Within a few months, he had traveled twice to America and the United Kingdom and shared the stage with well-known artists.

“I’ve always been interested in creators. Although the world of Eurovision is new to me, from the outside it seems to respect a well-written song above all. People seem to be free to express their art any way they want. I’m an ABBA fan, they wrote unfiltered, virtual hymns. My sister and I were singing their songs together in the bathroom. The personal experience inspires most of my writing – all I hope to do is help people express some of them. I’m also happy to the moon for competing with my girlfriend Montaigne who I respect very much”

“I am excited to be part of Eurovision: Australia Decides and to be able to find myself on the biggest stage in the world. Eurovision songs often combine elements of traditional and contemporary sounds, something that I do with my own music. Most importantly it brings different cultures all under the banner of music, which is a beautiful thing”

Mitch Tambo’s participation did not surprise anyone because, through the “Australian’s Got Talent” that participated in the previous months, reaching the final, there were few who urged him to compete in the country’s national Eurovision final.

iOTA

IOTA is a multi-talented artist, as he is both an actor, a singer and a composer! He has participated in many films and series, and has been nominated for various acting and music awards.

“I’m not the typical type of contestant, but I’m interested in the Eurovision Song Contest on color and motion, music and performance, light and shadow, creativity and self-expression, singing and performing in front of so many big audience”

Six more candidates for Eurovision: Australia Decides!

The other six candidates will be announced in the near future with Paul Clarke, executive producer Eurovision: Australia Decides promising us more surprises:

“We are thrilled to welcome Mitch and iOTA to this truly exciting line-up. Together with Casey Donovan and Vanessa Amorosi, these four artists are beginning to give fans an indication of the scale, diversity and raw creativity that will be at the heart of Eurovision – Australia Decides 2020.
