While we may have already covered Guy Sebastian’s Australian Eurovision entry on the site in the last six weeks or so, given it was outside our ‘Countdown To Eurovision’ series, we’re doing it again.
To put it frankly, we’re always going to be pushing shit uphill to win a European song competition when we don’t actually exist within Europe. But given we’ve been given automatic qualification for the grand final, alongside the host nation and the big five, we’ve less competition to fend off.
We know from having seen Guy on our screens over the past decade or so that he has what it takes to slay them vocally, but whether he’s got the charisma and performance to stand out on a stage that’s renowned for being perhaps a little whacky at times remains to be seen. One thing for sure is, that while right now he and his song are being utterly ignored at radio, if he wins, he’ll come home a national hero. ‘Cause that’s what we do as Aussies… Completely ignore our artists and their talent. But when they succeed overseas, they’re OURS, WE’RE PROUD OF THEM AND DON’T YOU FORGET IT! Dix points.
