Australia: It’s Isaiah Firebrace for Eurovision 2017 in Kiev!

Isaiah Firebrace will represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest. The winner of X-Factor Australia has been selected internally by broadcaster SBS to sing the song ‘Don’t Come Easy’.

Australia will take part in the first semi final on the 9th of May. It will be third official attempt of our nation at the Eurovision Song Contest. So far, Australia has reached exclusively TOP-5 results, both with Guy Sebastian and Dami Im.

Get to know Isaiah Firebrace

Isaiah Firebrace, also known as Isaiah, is an Australian singer who won the eighth season of The X Factor Australia in 2016. This is remarkable, since he is only 17 years old. Isaiah released a self-titled debut studio album after his victory, released through Sony Music Australia on 9 December 2016.

The album was preceded by the lead single “It’s Gotta Be You”, which debuted at number 26 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The album features re-recorded studio tracks of some of the songs he performed on the show including his winning single, “It’s Gotta Be You”.

Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest

Isaiah is the successor of Dami Im and Guy Sebastian. Guy scored a respectable fifth place at Australia’s debut year in Vienna with his song ‘Tonight Again’. After that, Dami Im followed up with a fantastic second place. Her vocally stunning performance in ‘Sound of Silence’ impressed the juries. One year earlier in Copenhagen, Jessica Mauboy sang her song “Sea of Flags” as interval act in the second semi final.
