By Isabella Bull December 18, 2019

It’s got… Absolutely Everybody.

Okay, not everybody… but a bunch of amazing Australian talents.

SBS has announced the final line up of competitors to follow in Kate Miller-Heidke’s gravity defying shoes at Eurovision 2020, and it includes some familiar faces.

Joining Aussie icon Vanessa Amorosi, powerhouse Casey Donovan, rising First Nations artist Mitch Tambo, glam rock star iOTA, art pop auteur Montaigne and alternative artist Didirri in Eurovision: Australia Decides are four up and coming artists:

The Voice 2019 winner Diana Rouvas, Australia's Got Talent 2011 winner Jack Vidgen, 19-year-old Darwin singer-songwriter Jordan-Ravi and Taiwanese-Australian multi-media artist Jaguar Jonze. 

SBS has also revealed that Jack Vidgen will take the stage to perform his newly released ballad, 'I Am King I Am Queen'.

Jack said he feels honoured to have the opportunity to represent Australia.

“[I] actually can’t believe it’s really happening… I adore my song, it’s a real representation of me and everything I stand for,” he said.

“I think that everyone, young and old, will be able to relate to and take inspiration from this song. I hope that the Eurovision audiences love it as much as I do!” 

Eurovision: Australia Decides will be hosted again by Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February - and tickets for the live shows are now on sale.
