Australia’s first entry into the Eurovision Song contest comes from one of our countries most successful recording artists of recent years and former X Factor Australia mentor Guy Sebastian. 'Tonight Again' is an entry Australia should be proud of and makes good use of Guy’s signature brass driven jams. Guy got a massive positive reception in the Wiener Stadthalle and our moment on stage has heralded a new era for the contest. Upbeat and almost annoyingly catchy 'Tonight Again' stands out as a genuine contender when compared to the considerable volume of ballads that will feature across Eurovision week.

I love how the Eurovision Song Contest showcases that diversity and that you never know what you are going to get.
