As the big weekend approaches, things are heating up!

Eurovision royalty, Norwegian supergroup KEiiNO, has been revealed as the first special guest to perform on the Gold Coast at Eurovision – Australia Decides in February.

The trio who represented Norway at Eurovision in 2019 are excited:

"We can't wait to perform during Eurovision - Australia Decides, as the first stop of our Australian tour! To be guest-starring in this impressive line-up of artists is a true honour, and we promise to put on a show that will bring back memories of 2019 and turn them into an epic moment of 2022. The Australian audience is amazing, so there's no other place in the world we'd rather be than on Gold Coast the last weekend of February!"

KEiiNO won a lot of fans at Eurovision 2019 with Spirit in the Sky. KEiiNO’s mix of uplifting pop, dance, and Nordic folk melodies and joik - the traditional form of song of the Sami people - reached a broad audience beyond their Nordic beginnings. Their Eurovision entry, written and released by the band themselves, charted in many European countries, made it to #1 on the Norway sales charts and #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart.

As KEiiNO embarks on their first international tour after the pandemic, Australia will be their first stop. The group feel very much at home Down Under, and lead singer Alexandra Rotan even chose to sing John Farnham's You're the Voice in the finals of the major TV singing competition "Stjernekamp" (battle of the stars) a few months back.

Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst will once again be at the helm of SBS’s Eurovision – Australia Decides coverage.

The winner will be revealed during the Live TV Final which will be broadcast exclusively on SBS and SBS On Demand on Saturday 26 February.
