Australia Decides 2022: Sheldon Riley, G-Nat!on & Andrew Lambrou added to the lineup

Sheldon Riley, an Australian Icon and proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, is finally living his Eurovision dream, as he was announced as one of the acts in "Eurovision - Australia Decides 2022". Sheldon Riley formerly participated in The Voice AU 2018 and The Voice All-Stars 2019. The Australian-Filipino singer got his international fandom after making to Top3 on America's Got Talent. From his very unique artistry and style, we can already believe something big and impressive is coming out from his entry.

Eurovision 2021 – First Semifinal results and reactions.

The first Semifinal of Eurovision Song Contest 2021 has just ended and we have the first 10 finalists that will join the Big 5 and The Netherlands in the Grand Final of Saturday 22nd May 2021.  So many feelings, so many emotions: we spent the whole night watching the event live from the Press Room in Rotterdam Ahoy Arena, and hey, did we have goosebumps the whole night! Two years since the last real Eurovision Song Contest (Tel Aviv 2019) and we finally had the chance to enjoy such a fantastic music show that the whole world enjoyed.  Who are the finalists? Do we agree with them all? No! Absolutely not!  Norway for example: a very weak staging; a very weak voice and we hope the back singers are paid good enough to save Tix’s voice every time he sings live on that stage; majori...

Josh Martin, the SBS Commissioning Editor and Australian Head of delegation said: “Australia has embraced the Eurovision spirit for more than 35 years on SBS, and our affection and excitement for the contest has con...
