Absolutely everybody listen up! Australia’s Eurovision hopefuls have been announced and there’s some great options here.
Once again it will be up to the public to decide who will compete for us at the song contest and this year our hopefuls have been announced as Aussie legends Vanessa Amorosi and Casey Donovan.
The qualifier will go down in February on the Gold Coast next year with one of the girls hoping to head to the Netherlands to perform their song of choice for us at Eurovision.
Both girls seem pretty excited to be in the running to follow in the footsteps of Kate Miller-Heidke who was the chosen performer for us this year.

“I am a proud Aussie and to have the opportunity to sing one of my songs on a huge international stage representing Australia would be unforgettable,” said Amorosi in a statement.
“[I] can’t wait to share the stage with some of Australia’s most talented singers,” Casey added.
It’s not yet known which songs the two performers will sing at the qualifier but Amorosi has just released a new album today so it’s likely something from that.
We also know the qualifier will go down on February 8 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
