The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) which is the governing body for the Eurovision Song Contest has made new specifications to their rule book, clarifying its position on Associate Members and their eligibility to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Last week, as part of the Sydney Mardi Gras celebrations, Conchita Wurst announced that Dami Im would be the second person ever to represent Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest. However her song would remain a mystery for a little while longer. That mystery is no more as ‘Sound of Silence’ was released earlier today. Listen to the song below.
Australia had been relatively silent (or is it coy?) on who their Eurovision pick for 2016 would be. This hasn’t stopped many people speculating who it would be. Two names were being touted by various press outlets in the Land of Oz- Delta Goodrem and Australian X-Factor Season 5 winner Dami Im. Earlier this week Delta took to social media to deny that she was involved. Therefore when they broke the silence, it came as no shock that Dami Im would be the pick when it was announced earlier today.
