Kyiv 2017

Isaiah represents Australia with “Don’t Come Easy”

Australia has selected Isaiah Firebrace, who will perform under just his first name, to represent them at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “Don’t Come Easy”. This is the third consecutive year that Australia have chosen a champion of a televised singing reality competition to represent them.

Isaiah shot to fame on The X Factor Australia 2016 by winningย the show in Adam Lambert’s Under 22s category. Performing songs such as “Lay It All on Me” by Rudimental and Ed Sheeran as well as “FourFiveSeconds” by Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney, Isaiah demonstrated his capable vocal ability.

In a similar way to Dami Im last year, Isaiah will be performing a modern pop ballad. In Isaiah’s case, the song is similar to the kind of song that Sam Smith released from his first album In the Lonely Heart.ย Expect vocal acrobatics again from Australia as “Don’t Come Easy” is likely to impress further in a live setting, as a vocalist of Isaiah’s capablility is likely to beย able to out-perform the studio version of his entry.

Going for a hat trick of Top 5 finishes

By selecting yet another talent show winner, Australia is demonstrating its depth of vocal talent yet again. With Guy Sebastian, a former Idols champion, having also been a mentor on The X Factor Australia during Isaiah’s season, one could predict that some words of advice will be offered from Sebastian.

It is yet to be seen if Australia will be doing a European tour prior to their participation at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine.
