The second edition of Australia’s Eurovision televised national final “Eurovision – Australia Decides” has only just reached its conclusion with Montaigne taking victory with “Don’t Break Me”. Nevertheless, excitement is already building for a prospective third edition of the selection with the breaking news that Dami Im will be aiming to represent Australia once more.
Two performances and a big announcement!
In today’s show, Dami Im provided two special guest performances whilst the audience were waiting for the votes to be finalised. The Eurovision 2016 runner-up gave an emotional performance of new single “Marching On” as well as a new version of “Walk With Me” with Måns Zelmerlöw. Following the latter, Dami revealed to hosts Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst that she had a secret announcement. Yes, Dami revealed she would be entering Eurovision – Australia Decides in 2021!
Going for the title?
Whilst SBS is yet to confirm that Eurovision – Australia Decides will return for a third edition in 2021, Dami certainly has confirmed that she will be submitting an entry with the aim of representing Australia for a second time.
Back in 2016, Dami was internally selected to represent Australia with power ballad “Sound of Silence”. After a dominant win in the jury vote, Dami ended up placing second once all votes were combined, narrowly missing out to Ukraine’s Jamala.
Montaigne for 2020
This year, Australia will be represented by Montaigne with “Don’t Break Me”. In a close contest, the ARIA award-winning star held off a strong challenge from Casey Donovan’s “Proud” and Vanessa Amorosi’s “Lessons of Love”.
