Eurovision in Concert have announced another Eurovision 2022 act to perform in Amsterdam on April 9th. Austria’s LUM!X feat. Pia Maria will be bringing “Halo” to AFAS Live.

The 19-year-old DJ LUM!X has gained success with hits such as “The Passenger (LaLaLa)” and “Thunder“. In 2019, he released the song “Monster” with Gabry Ponte, who he also worked on “Halo” with. The song has reached over 219 million streams on Spotify. Overall, LUM!X has over one billion streams, over 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify and multiple platinum and gold certifications. 

At the Eurovision Song Contest, LUM!X is will compete together with 18-year-old Pia Maria. Pia Maria is a trained make-up artist at the Tyrolean State Theatre and began writing songs at the age of 15. The singer still has little stage experience, but an extraordinary voice. Their entry “Halo” was released last week with the music video.

Austria will compete in the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. LUM!X feat. Pia Maria will perform on the second half of the show on May 10th. Last year Austria was represented by Vincent Bueno. He represented the country with “Amen” but failed to qualify to the final. Last time we saw Austria in the final was in 2018, when César Sampson finished third with “Nobody but You”.
