This week has seen a flurry of countries introducing us to their entries for the ESC in Rotterdam in May and today, it’s the turn of Austria. Now, Vincent Bueno has officially revealed his song for 2021 “Amen”. Vincent was internally selected to represent Austria again this year , after having been denied the opportunity to fly the flag for his country last year, due to the contest being cancelled because of the spread of Covid-19 . The Song, “Amen” has a very different sound to last year’s song “Alive ” you can see the official video here :
Austria have won the contest twice, first with Udo Jurgens with ” Mercie Cherie ” in 1966 and more recently in 2014 when Conchita Wurst stormed to victory with the power ballad “Rise like a Phoenix”.
What do you think ? Do you think Austria are onto a winner this year ? Please do drop us a line and share your thoughts with us in our comments box below .
