On Tuesday, SBS revealed The Voice 2019 winner Diana Rouvas, Australia’s Got Talent 2011 winner Jack Vidgen, 19-year-old Darwin singer-songwriter Jordan-Ravi and Taiwanese-Australian multimedia artist Jaguar Jonze will take part.

They’re up against performers Vanessa Amorosi and Casey Donovan, First Nations artist Mitch Tambo, rocker iOTA, pop star Montaigne and alternative artist Didirri.

However only one of the artists’ songs has been revealed: Jack Vidgen’s ballad I Am King I Am Queen.

“I’m a huge fan of Eurovision, so to compete for the opportunity to represent Australia is mind-blowing,” Vidgen said.

“[My song is] a real representation of me and everything I stand for. I think that everyone, young and old, will relate to and take inspiration from this song.

“I hope that the Eurovision audiences love it as much as I do!”
