The artists responses were:
Alfie Arcuri said:
“It’s an honour to be involved in a competition that celebrates and embraces music and diversity... and to take this journey alongside such amazing Australian talents is truly incredible! There’s always something special about the first - scary but exciting!”
Ella Hooper said:
“It’s very exciting to be involved in anything that is the first of its kind, and in recent years I have become more and more fascinated with Eurovision, so it’s perfect timing! I’m hoping to bring a bit of traditional rock ‘n’ roll energy to a bombastic performance of a meaningful pop song.”
Tania Doko said:
“This is one of those unplanned, didn’t-see-this-coming little chapter in my career I’m embracing with a sense of adventure and excitement. Then, as a songwriter performing a song I co-wrote, there’s the icing on the cake right there!”
On top of these three artists, five songs have also been officially released by artists competing.
Songs that have been released:
Electric Fields - 2000 and Whatever
Aydan - Dust
Leea Nanos - Set Me Free
Mark Vincent - This is Not the End
Alfie Arcuri - To Myself
