SBS has announced that Montaigne represents Australia, when the Eurovision Song Contest returns in May 2021. After the unprecedented cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest this year, Montaigne will still get her shot at Eurovision glory.

Montaigne was chosen to represent the country after winning Eurovision – Australia Decides with her performance of ‘Don’t Break Me’ in February 2020. She’s thrilled that Australia’s decision will be honoured in 2021.

“I’m so happy to receive this good news during such times. At home, we’ve started this ritual of cracking open a fortune cookie daily and reading our fortunes to each other. And I got one that read, “You will be sharing great news with all the people you love.” I’m so glad it came true!”

Australia joins in a growing list of countries who’ve given their 2020 artists a second chance. Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Israel, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine already went before them.
