Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest
After being invited to compete in 2015 Guy Sebastian represented Australia with “Tonight Again”, which placed 5th Overall. Their best result came a year later in 2016 when Dami Im came second with her song ‘Sound Of Silence’. ‘Sound of Silence’ scored 511 points in the Grand Final and was the jury winner of the contest.
Australia’s recent participation saw Australia being represented by Montaigne (who was due to represent them in 2020), with the song “Technicolour”, which unfortunately placed 14th in the Semi-Final.
