SEBASTIAN CHANGES HIS TUNE FOR EUROVISION


Guy Sebastian has changed his tune and will perform a “soul-pop” song, Tonight Again, when representing Australia at Eurovision in Vienna.

Sebastian will be accompanied by an Australian band for one of the biggest audiences any Australian has sung for – estimated at up to 200 million television viewers.

The choice of Sebastian divided the nation – undoubtedly his choice of song will do the same.

Sebastian originally said he was deciding between a couple of songs from his latest album, Madness, both of which were ballads.

His thinking was that a power ballad would showcase his best weapon, his voice. But it is understood Sebastian reconsidered because so many of the songs performed at Eurovision are mid-tempo pop songs.

I thought since I had a couple of days off in Australia I would try and write something new,” he said.

We all have moments you don’t want to end and you wish you could live those moments every day so I wanted to write a song about that feeling.”

Tonight Again was written and recorded by Sebastian in Sydney in the space of a week.

It is a song we can all get behind, and Guy is the perfect artist to deliver a world class performance for Australia and SBS on the world’s biggest stage,” said SBS managing director Michael Ebeid.

Sebastian will be fast-tracked to the Eurovision 2015 Grand Final as a special one-off wild-card entry.

The Eurovision Song Contest will be screened live on SBS One from May 20-24.
