Australia: Electric Fields will represent the country in Malmö with “One Milkali (One Blood)”!

We finally have an announcement from the “Land Down Under”. SBS, the Australian public television, has revealed that Electric Fields will represent Australia in Malmö with their song “One Milkali (One Blood)”.

You can listen to “One Milkali (One Blood)”, below:

The entry’s reveal was scheduled for today, while a few days ago The Voyager, last year’s representatives, teased us with the announcement of their successors.

How we got to Electric Fields?

For the second consecutive year, SBS opted for an internal selection in order to decide its Eurovision 2024 act. No information was given regarding the procedure, while the rumors were excessive. Names like Delta Goodrem, Dannii Minogue and Dami Im were circulating as the potential Australian representatives with all of the aforementioned denying these rumors later.

It appears that Electric Fields were SBS pick for Eurovision 2024 and everyone else was just fans’ wishful thinking.

Who are Electric Fields?

Electric Fields is an Australian electronic music duo made up of vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and keyboard player and producer Michael Ross. Electric Fields combine modern electric-soul music with Aboriginal culture.

They are no strangers to the Eurovision community. Electric Fields took part in the country’s first national final, Australia Decides – Eurovision 2019, where they placed second behind Kate Miller-Heidke with their song “2000 and Whatever“.

Australia: With Voyager and ”Promise” in Liverpool!

A short while ago, Australian public television (SBS) announced that the band Voyager will be representing the country on Eurovision 2023.

Voyager will be competing with the song Promise, which you can listen to below:

Who are Voyager?

Voyager is a progressive metal band from Perth, Western Australia , formed in 1999. The band has released seven full-length albums to date.

In 2020 they had submitted a song to represent Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 called “Runaway”, but were eventually not selected as one of the 10 artists competing in the country’s national final.

Last year, the band was selected to take part in Eurovision – Australia Decides and came second with “Dreamer”. In fact, it came in the first place of the televoting.

Australia: Internal selection announcement attracts famous artists, who’d wish to compete at Eurovision 2023!

This week, SBS announced that they will be ditching Eurovision – Australia Decides in favour of an internal selection procedure for their representative that will have to travel to Liverpool next May, in the hopes of winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

This will be the first time in four years that Australia would choose an entry internally, since the selection of Jessica Mauboy back in 2018.

It looks like the announcement of the internal selection by SBS made the prospect of representing Australia in 2023 in Liverpool quite appealing for many popular artists, who have already started showing their interest in representing Australia in next year’s contest publicly!

Dami Im

The first artist that showed her interest is Dami Im.

“Was looking forward to competing at Aus decides but in this case I’m super keen”

She would be keen on competing at Australia decides, as she notes, but would be glad if she was given the opportunity to represent Australia in 2023.

“I’m so keen if I get offered the opportunity to return”

Her song “Sound of Silence” is the best known Australia’s entry at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden back in 2016, when it finished 2nd receiving a total of 511 points.

Later in 2021 she had announced that she would compete at Australia Decides, if SBS hadn’t decided to select Montaigne, after being chosen at Australia Decides back in 2020 for the cancelled contest.

Jaguar Jonze

The fan-favourite Jaguar Jonze was urged by many of her fans on Twitter to grab the opportunity of the internal selection! She later on tweeted:

“Just saying @SBSEurovision I’d happily cancel my hair appointment in May to represent Australia on a world stage”

Jaguar Jonze competed in this year’s Australia Decides placing 3nd with the song “Little Fires“!


The band who already got the taste but lost over Kate Miller-Heidke back in 2019, expressed their interest as well, by commenting:

“Consider our hat thrown in the ring! What an honour we’re sure whoever heads to Liverpool will do us all proud x”

Sheppard competed in the very first Australia Decides contest placing 3rd with the song “On My Way


The band, who just got back from an international tour, commented on the Aussievision Facebook page:

“Oooooohhhh, consider us interested. We’d be honoured to make the voyage….”

VOYAGER competed in this year’s Australia Decides placing 2nd with the song “Dreamer” and had previously attempted to enter the competition, back in 2020!

Time will tell who will eventually represent Australia at Eurovision Song Contest 2023, after the internal selection procedure of SBS is complete.

This year, Australia was represented by Sheldon Riley with the song “Not The Same”, having previously won Australia Decides. Sheldon placed 15th in the final with 125 points, almost all from the juries.

Australia: SBS confirms internal selection for 2023 and Dami Im declares her interest!

A few moments ago, the Australian Public Broadcaster SBS confirmed that the show “Australia Decides” will not return for Eurovision 2023, shifting to an internal selection for the artist and the song that will represent Australia at the Eurovision 2023 which will take place in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine.

We have previously wrote about the change of the selection process, since the show was not included in the schedule of the broadcaster for 2023 as well as the submission period last year opened in August. Some people online rushed to discredit our article but we are happy that once again, Eurovisionfun is proven to be a reliable source for Eurovision news not only for Greece but beyond.

SBS mentions in the statement:

“We are thrilled to confirm that Australia will once again compete in the 67th Eurovision Song Contest next year, with hosts Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey at the helm. However, after three years of celebrating and working with local music artists through our Eurovision selection show, Eurovision – Australia Decides, we’ve made the difficult decision not to go ahead with the program in 2023.”

Over the past few months, we have been exploring ways we could deliver the event to Australian audiences next year however, a variety of factors contributed to us coming to this decision.

We are proud to continue to be the home of the Eurovision Song Contest and we look forward to celebrating 40 years of broadcasting Eurovision to all Australians in the coming year.”

Dami Im, the artist that brought Australia its best result, coming 2nd in Eurovision 2016, was quick to react to the news, stating that she is interested to represent the country one more time:

Australia was represented in Eurovision 2022 by Sheldon Riley and the song “Not the Same”, coming 15th with 125 points, the vast majority of which came from the juries (123) and 2 points came from the televote.

Australia: Internal selection for Eurovision 2023!

It looks like Australia Decides, Australia’s national final for the Eurovision Song Contest, will not be returning next year.

SBS has unveiled its schedule for the new TV season and Australia Decides is nowhere to be found. In fact, in the list he published, it is mentioned at the end under the sign “absent”, along with two more television projects.

So far, Australian public television has not officially announced how Australia’s representative in Eurovision 2023 will be selected, although everything now indicates that we are heading for an internal selection.

Last year, SBS opened the deadline for submissions on August 26, closing a month later on September 26. Having already entered November and knowing that at least a month is required for the submission of entries, it seems that Australia will choose internally for Eurovision 2023.

Of course, this won’t be the first time this has happened, since from 2015 to 2018, as well as 2021, SBS selected its representatives for the competition internally.

This year, Australia was represented by Sheldon Riley with the song Not The Same, having previously won Australia Decides. Sheldon placed 15th in the final with 125 points, almost all from the juries.

Andrew Lambrou: With which country is the singer in discussions for Eurovision 2023?

We promised you last night, through our social media, some really interesting news! And we aspire to always deliver! So, here it is: Andrew Lambrou, an Australian singer of Cypriot origin, is in discussions with a country for Eurovision 2023.

“Until we know what’s happening with Eurovision”

Due to the summer idleness and lack of news, we decided to get in touch with artists who were candidates for this year’s national finals, to see where they are now, what they are up to or if they would be interested in participating again in ESC.

One of the artists we interviewed was Andrew Lambrou, who attempted to represent Australia at Eurovision 2022, taking part in the national final Australia Decides with the song Electrify – eventually coming seventh out of eleven candidates.

So, we contacted him and he agreed to do the interview, referring us to his manager to arrange the details of the interview. After having agreed on day and time with his manager, Timothy Youngson, we were waiting for the final “ok”.

However, on Sunday evening, we received an e-mail in which it was essentially confirmed that the artist is in discussions for Eurovision 2023, and that his team decided to wait for the final outcome of these discussions, before giving an interview!

Which country is Andrew Lambrou in discussions with?

Of course, the question that arises now is which country is Andrew Lambrou in discussions with. There are, we believe, two possible scenarios.


The first possible scenario is that the young expatriate artist is discussing a return to Australia Decides, the country’s national final for the ESC.

He might not have managed to get the ticket for the Competition this year, but Andrew Lambrou left a positive impression upon the eurofans, and not a few of them would like to see him try again.


The second possible scenario is of course Cyprus. CYBC very recently signed a new agreement with PANIK, according to which their cooperation in Eurovision is extended for at least two more years. In fact, it was announced that for 2023 they will once again select the artist internally, while for 2024 they will hold ,together with Nikos Kokloni’s production company, “All Together Now”, for the selection of the country’s representative.

So, it would not come as a surprise if the Cypriot delegation and PANIK are already in discussion with the artist’s team, in order for the latter to represent the country in the next competition. Andrew Lambrou may not be part of PANIK’s team (after all he lives and works in Australia), but this is not a problem since something similar happened back in 2020, with PANIK records taking over Sandro merely for the Eurovision project.

Who is Andrew Lambrou

Andrew Lambrou is 24 years old, who lives and works in Sydney. He performs and writes his own songs since the age of five.

At the age of just 17, he impressed all four X Factor judges, who easily got him through to the next stage. Having received great feedback from the four big names sitting in the judges’ seats  (Danii Minogue, James Blunt, Chris Isaak, Guy Sebastian). Andrew got through the first round with four ‘YES’, performing his rendition of Nick Jonas’ song “Chains”.

In the second phase, the 5 seat challenge, the coach of the Boys under 25 team, Chris Isaak, was asked to choose only five out of the boys to go through. Andrew sang “Ain’t nobody” by Chaka Khan and achieved a Top 5 spot.

It is worth noting that Andrew Lambrou became known well before his participation on X-Factor, due to his YouTube Channel, where he uploads various covers of popular (mostly pop) songs.

Unfortunately, Andrew was not as lucky in the next phase, the Super Home Visits phase, as he did not manage to make it to the top 3 and enter the live shows. This is attributed mostly to his musical inexperience at the time. However, experts in the field, like Simon Cowell, remarked upon Andrew’s promising career in the industry.

It now remains to be seen if Andrew Lambrou will try again for the Australian national final despite his recent disappointing results or whether CYBC, after this year’s non-qualification, will follow on the ERT’s footsteps and send an expatriate artist to the ESC.

Check out his performance at Australia Decides 2022 below:
