Austria: The representative to be announced tomorrow!

Austria’s national broadcaster, ORF, confirmed just a bit ago via its website that the announcement of the artist who will represent the country in Turin will be made tomorrow during the Ö3-Wecker radio show on Hitradio Ö3, which will be broadcast from 5am to 9am (CET).

Ö3-Wecker has been presenting the country’s representative or entry in the Eurovision Song Contest every year since 2017. Because of this, many suspect that the announcement of the representative will be made around 7:40 (CET) as this has been the scheduled flow of the show in previous years, although this is not officially confirmed.

As we have already informed you, there are now only 2 contenders in the chase for the Austrian ticket to Turin.

DJ Lumix, who became famous with his smash hit “Monster” and is gradually becoming one of the most successful artists in terms of online downloads and has more than a billion streams. And the duo Anger, consisting of Julian Angerer and Nora Pider, who are based in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

2021 was the second consecutive year that Austria failed to qualify for the Grand Final. Will one of the two candidates manage to make Austria a contendable force again?

Austria: Four candidates to represent the country in Eurovision 2022?

Firstly the Austrian broadcaster, ORF, was planning to reveal the country’s representer in December, however they decided to make the announcement at the end of January.

There are, yet, four possible candidate acts that seem really possible to get Austria‘s ticket to Turin.

These are the four acts:


DELADAP seem to be pretty known among eurofans. They tried to represent Austria again back in 2012 with the song “Crazy Swing” but due to it being performed earlier the song got banned so they ended up participating with “Don’t Turn Around“.

2. Candlelight Ficus

Candlelight Ficus are a quartet of boys from Styria. They have already released a few singles and EPs, some of which are “What’s Coming“, “Two Blond B******” and “Open The Door“.

3. LUM!X

LUM!X is an Austrian DJ who has collaborated with pretty big names. His biggest hit, “Monster” – a collaboration with the Italian DJ Gabry Ponte -, counts over 70 million views on Youtube and over 206 million streams on Spotify.


ANGER are a duet from South Tyrol, based in Vienna, which has lately received many awards for their music. They have also recently released some songs in German. Their music is described as a combination of auto-tune, electric guitar and technoid beats.

What do you think about these 4 candidates? Who is your favourite? Do you think Austria might actually pick someone else?
