Australia’s Eurovision broadcaster SBS has finally completed the line-up for next year’s national selection, announcing the final four acts earlier today.
The four acts announced today are Diana Rouvas, Jack Vidgen, Jordan Ravi and Jaguar Jonze.
Jack Vidgen found fame as the fifth winner of Australia’s Got Talent in 2011, at the age of just 14. Since then he has also released two albums before a hiatus from singing. He returned to the stage for The Voice earlier this year, reaching the semi-finals as part of Eurovision alumnus Guy Sebastian’s team.
The winner of that season was Diana Rouvas, who will also appear in next year’s selection. The half-Greek performer initially reached the semi-finals of The Voice in 2012 before going all the way and taking home the crown earlier this year as part of Boy George’s team.
Another talent show alumnus, Jordan Ravi is a 19 year old rising star in Australia who was part of this year’s Australia’s Got Talent series and describes himself as a “guitarist singer-songwriter”. His entry was co-penned by George Sheppard and Tania Doko from the 2019 edition of ‘Australia Decides’.
Finally, Jaguar Jonze completes our line-up, a Taiwanese-Australian performer born in Japan. As the Australian radio network Triple J describe her, “Jaguar Jonze crafts songs of melancholic beauty woven with gun slinging guitar lines and a strikingly rich, yet intimate voice.”
