DJ LUM!X (Luca Michlmayr) has gained success with hits such as โ€œThe Passenger (LaLaLa)โ€ and โ€œThunderโ€œ. In 2019, he released the song โ€œMonsterโ€ with Gabry Ponte, who is known from the group Eiffel 65. The song has been reached over 200 million streams on Spotify and it has sold more than 400,000 copies in Germany, given the artists a platinum record.

In 2019, ORF announced that Vincent Bueno would represent Austria in the 2020 contest in Rotterdam with โ€œAliveโ€. Despite the cancellation, ORF later announced that he had been internally-selected once again to represent Austria at the 2021 contest.

Vincent finally got his shot on the Eurovision stage back in May with โ€œAmenโ€. Performing 5th in semi-final two, โ€œAmenโ€ ultimately placed 12th with a total of 66 points. This marked Austriaโ€™s second consecutive non-qualification.
