Queer Sydney singer Seann Miley Moore is one of eleven performers heading to the Gold Coast next February for Eurovision – Australia Decides.

Eurovision – Australia Decides is returning to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday and Saturday, February 25 and 26, 2022.
A lineup of local artists will perform at the Coast concerts for a chance to represent us next May.
SBS announced Seann Miley Moore, Charley, Voyager, and Jude York are the final four to join the lineup for the decider.
They’re joining the six others Sheldon Riley, Jaguar Jonze, Paulini, Isaiah Firebrace, G-Nat!on and Andrew Lambrou.
And SBS has partnered with TikTok to allow a wildcard 11th artist to join the lineup at Eurovision – Australia Decides. The TikTok competition is open to individual singers or a group of up to six people.
Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst are again hosting the Eurovision – Australia Decides on the Gold Coast next February. Tickets to the concerts are on sale now.
Seann Miley Moore is best known for The Voice Australia
Earlier this year, Seann Miley Moore wowed with his audition on The Voice Australia, belting out Andrea Bocelli’s The Prayer in front of the judges. Seann’s debut EP 4 track bitch is streaming on Spotify.
The singer says he wants to represent us at Eurovision 2022 as a proud queer man and proud Australian.
“I don’t stand here like ‘I want to be different’, ‘I want to be unique’, or ‘I want to wear all this to be seen and heard,’” he explained.
“I stand here as a proud queer man, a proud brown man and most importantly, a proud Australian.
“It comes down to authenticity and happiness. Doing all these things make me happy. They make me feel alive. That’s what matters.
“Eurovision is about celebrating your pride and I’m ready to give you all the fabulous joy baby!
“Everybody is welcome in Seann Miley Moore’s world – so Australia, pack your bags, we’re going to the Gold Coast!”

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled Eurovision for the first time in the contest’s long history.
Earlier this year, Australia’s Montaigne sadly failed to progress to the final with her livestreamed record of song Technicolour.
