Australia’s 2017 Eurovision Song Contest artist to be revealed soon

ProgrammingMedia Release

Dami Im

Last May, Australians watched on from across the world for a nail-biting finish in Stockholm, Sweden, as Dami Im soared on the stage with anything but a Sound of Silence, to be crowned Eurovision Song Contest runner-up.

Now comes our chance to do it all again, at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine this May.

The Australian artist chasing Eurovision glory at the world’s biggest song contest is about to be announced, on Tuesday 7 March.  

For the first time ever, Australia’s artist and song will both be revealed at the same time, in an intimate live performance at a secret location in Melbourne, hosted by SBS’s Eurovision commentator, host, expert and enthusiast Julia Zemiro.

The artist reveal will be broadcast LIVE on SBS Facebook from 5.30pm. Stay tuned to the SBS Facebook page for updates and a countdown to the announcement moment!

Who will it be? Will a group, male solo or female solo take the stage?  

Is the song Australians will be belting out in their living rooms an upbeat party anthem, or emotional power ballad? 

All will be revealed, Tuesday 7 March.
