Aussie fan of the week - Jordy
Our Australian Eurovision fan of the week is @lgranka from Twitter also known as Jordy! Read our Q&A with Jordy below:
What is your name and where are you from?
Jordy from Coolamon, NSW
Tell us something interesting about you?
I really love cacti and succulents and have about 150 different types.
When did you first get into Eurovision?
I vaguely watched Eurovision growing up but my first proper fangirl year was 2012!
What is your favourite Eurovision year?
Definitely 2012, sentimentally because it was my first proper viewing of the contest and because it is full of so many iconic female artists! Loreen, Pastora Soler, Kaliopi, Nina Zilli, Greta Salóme, you can't get better than that.
Was a great year for females and it's interesting that most people love the year that flicked something inside them to be go full blown fandom! ~ Aussievision
Which Eurovision song is:
Molitva. Molitva is one of my first Eurovision memories but it didn't hit me how powerful it is until a few years ago. Since then it has grown stronger and stronger for me and it always warms my heart to see some LGBT representation in ESC!
Amazing vocal and performance and iconic winner
Fairytale It sounds so discordant to me I can't find it enjoyable at all!
Hear Them Calling. 2016 was such a strong year and it just wasn't Greta's time!
Best live performance?
Lovewave, ooh Iveta Mukuychan be still my beating heart
That first minute is one of the most iconic lives at Eurovision of all time.
Did I last play?
Poison (Ari Ari)
Not officially a 'Eurovision' song but we'll let this one slide ;)
Igranka of course!
Do you follow the national finals? If so have any songs caught your attention so far this year?
Yes! La Forza, I love an overdramatic powerful wailing woman
Why should Australia be in Eurovision?
Simple but true!
Are you happy with Jessica Mauboy as our choice for Lisbon?
I am so so happy to see Jess Mauboy back to represent us! She has such a stage present and the vocals to match, and no doubt she will make her song stand out this year.
Sea of Flags, Tonight Again, Sound of Silence or Don’t Come Easy?
Sea of Flags! I travelled to Copenhagen in 2014 and was lucky enough to see Jess perform this amazing song! It was such a special moment to see a stunning Indigenous Australian woman on the world stage making it her own!
Great choice and amazing you were there to see it
Thanks for your time!!
