#AUSTRALIA: First Seven Acts Known

Since December began, SBS have started to release the names of the acts taking part in “Australia Decides”, the first National Final to be held in the country.

The first seven acts to be announced are:

  • Mark Vince
  • Sheppard
  • Kate Miller-Heidke
  • Electric Fields
  • Courtney Act
  • Aydan Calafiore
  • Leea Nanos

Sheppard are a popular family group, with a couple of additional members. George Sheppard, the lead singer, had the following to say:

“Luckily we already had a song written which was perfect for Eurovision. It has the classic massive, anthemic Sheppard sound, celebrating love and the fire that burns within you when you’re in love. We are also planning an epic performance using technology and colour and light to tell the story in an interesting, unique way. The chance to represent our country in anything is an offer we couldn’t turn down, and Eurovision is like the Olympics of music. I get the feeling the artists involved will all become great friends through the experience, and whoever Australia decides to send over – we’ll all be cheering.”
