Guy Sebastian to Represent Australia for Eurovision 2015

Guy Sebastian, known for winning the first Australian Idol back in 2003, has been announced as our representative at the 2015 Eurovision Grand Final in Vienna!

This is the first time Australia has been able to compete – other Australians have previously only performed as a representative of the UK. Will Guy be able to do better than Olivia Newton-John in 1974?

Guy Sebastian says he is “…pumped. I mean it’s Eurovision. It’s such a huge audience and such a huge production.”

“The song that we end up choosing will definitely be something that I want to move people with. Whatever I do I want to make it cut through. So if I do a big up-temp (song) I want it to be super fun., Or if I do a ballad I want to try to make people cry,” he said.

See Guy Sebastian’s latest song, titled “Linger” ft. Lupe Fiasco, in the video below. Will he sing something similar?
