Three new acts have been revealed as contenders to represent Australia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, including an actual Act.
Drag superstar Courtney Act, young pop gun Aydan, and even younger singer Leea Nanos have joined the roster of musicians who will compete for your votes in next year’s live decider.
Act, who shot to mainstream prominence back on Australian Idol in 2003, is aiming to be the third Australian Idol alum to perform on the Eurovision stage.
“I’ve sat at home every year since Guy Sebastian competed in 2015 and have been so keen to be a part of it,” the RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up said.
“Now, this might be my chance!”
Fight For Love, the song she’ll be belting out in front of the nation, is also available for your early perusal:
Meanwhile, ex-The Voice challenger Aydan is set to compete against 16-year-old Nanos, who judges praised for her compelling song entry.
All three will join Electric Fields, Kate Miller-Heidke, Mark Vincent and Sheppard at the preliminary contest, which SBS will host on Saturday 9 February.Image: Karwai Tang / Getty Images
