Conchita Wurst to reveal Australian 2016 hopeful on March 3rd!

During the past few days, Eurovision fans have been wondering when Down Under would reveal their Eurovision entrant. Today, Australian public broadcaster SBS has announced that the name will see the light on the 3rd of March.

Due to ORF’s invitation to participate at last year’s contest in Vienna, the Aussies have decided that it should be no other than Austrian Eurovision queen Conchita Wurst to do it.

Conchita herself will unveil Australia’s artist during her one-off concert event with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Conchita: From Vienna with Love, followed by a special performance by our brand new Aussie Eurovision star on the iconic Sydney Opera House stage.

Will it be Delta Goodrem after also being involved on Bella’s My Girls for the Junior contest in 2015? Will the country repeat Guy Sebastian’s success? One thing is clear, this year they are allocated in the second semi-final as well as the other 36 countries in competition which are not part of the BIG 5 + Host country.

Stay tuned!

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year with hundreds of songs from all over Europe. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest three times, in Malmö, Copenhagen and Vienna; Stockholm will be my 4th. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experienced thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
