It’s official… Jessica Mauboy will be Australia’s representative at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal.
Jess is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest, having performed as part of the interval act back in 2014.
It was this interval act which was the springboard for Australia’s full time inclusion into the world’s biggest singing competition.
“Eurovision is a wonderfully joyous and unique event,” Jess said in a statement. “It brings together over 40 diverse countries and cultures under one roof to unite us all in music. It shows how much the power of song can transcend differences.
“I will sing my heart out for Australia, I’m so proud to be officially representing my country and a little bit nervous – mainly about the stress of the dress!”
The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the Portuguese capital Lisbon from May 09 to 13.
