The #DamiArmy is Marching on Europe – So Watch Out!
Dami Im will represent Australia at Eurovision 2016. It was not a fluke or just a blind decision made by Australian broadcaster SBS. Dami Im has supporters known as the #DamiArmy and they have been a highly energised force to be reckoned with.
Dami came to prominence in Australia’s X-Factor and that was where her supporters came into being. They became a force to be reckoned with and their collective name was coined #DamiArmy. We haven’t seen such a grass root support for an artist since Jedward and their fans rocked Eurovision in 2011.
In 2011 Jedward tapped into their fan network across Europe – even in places where they had not even released music. Dami maybe a new name to many in Europe but she has her troop of fans who are devoted and organised. We are beginning to see signs of that already with #DamiArmy twitter accounts and fan pages popping up all over Europe.
She paid tribute to the #DamiArmy in an interview in Australia where she acknowledged that they had canvassed for 2 years to get her to Eurovision – it’s paid off!
Are we set to see the #DamiArmy march to victory at Eurovision in Stockholm. The ‘Sound of Silence’ could just get very very loud!
