You can stop the speculation PopAsians...
It's Australia’s very own Guy Sebastian!
It seems like just yesterday that cute boy with the massive fro and voice of an angel (made of caramel) scampered onto an Australian idol stage. Four ARIA Awards and 6 platinum albums later, Guy Sebastian is more than ready to take on one of the World’s greatest stages – the Eurovision Song Contest stage!
If you missed the sequined telegram sent out in February, the good people at Eurovision have given Australia the official nod to participate in this year’s competition in Vienna. The decision had to have been made in part thanks to Jessica Mauboy’s cube-cracking performance as an honorary Aussie rep last year, in part thanks to SBS' hugely popular broadcast of the event... and in part thanks to our constant nagging.
Regardless, we’re in, and Guy Sebastian’s performance is sure to have miniature Aussie flags waving across the world. After all, Australian’s are EVERYWHERE!
The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast on SBS ONE on the following dates:
- Semi final 1 May 22
- Semi final 2 May 23
- Grand Final May 24
