"At home, we’ve started this ritual of cracking open a fortune cookie daily and reading our fortunes to each other and I got one that read, 'You will be sharing great news with all the people you love'. I’m so glad it came true!”
Australia joins Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Israel, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine in a growing list of countries who’ve also given their chosen 2020 artists another chance to compete next year.
But Eurovision rules stipulate all of this year's 41 songs, which have already been released as singles, can't be performed in 2021.
It means Cerro will not be able to perform Don’t Break Me, the song that saw her take out Eurovision – Australia Decides.
"I'm very keen to make new music, to produce a new song and figure out a new performance for next year," she said in a video posted to social media.
"I'm sad that I couldn't do this year's (song) though, because I thought that was going to be really cool, but I'm really happy to get another chance at it."
In a post to Twitter, Cerro asked fans to "keep streaming Don’t Break Me so it gets its dues before it’s superseded by a new banger".
SBS Commissioning Editor and Australian Head of Delegation Josh Martin said Cerro was "an incredibly talented, exciting and original artist".
Australian Eurovision contestant Montaigne opens up about postponed competition
"Our focus will now shift to a new song for 2021 and Montaigne is not wasting a moment of this period of isolation with many new ideas already on the table," he said.
The 2020 Eurovision Song Contest is one of many high-profile musical events to be cancelled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Britain's Glastonbury music festival.
