Aussievision Song Contest 2020: Finalists Revealed
The Aussievision Song Contest is back for its third year running. It's our annual competition to find the best non-Eurovision Australian song of the past 12 months.
In 2018 Troye Sivan won for Western Australia with 'My My My', while last year The Veronicas took out the title for Queensland with 'Think of Me'.
Who will win this year? Well each State and Territory representative has been chosen by a mixture of your votes (NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA and NT) and internal selections (ACT and TAS) by the Aussievision team.
You can see the representatives in the recap video below and more details and full videos after that:
New South Wales
5SOS - 'Teeth'
5 Seconds of Summer finished runner-up in the Aussievision Song Contest in 2018 and narrowly won the New South Wales selection ahead of Montaigne and her song 'Ready'.
Didirri - 'Blue Mood Rising'
The Australia Decides competitor won the Victorian selection just ahead of Illy with 'Then What' and surprise packet The Merindas with their track 'Before Daylight'.
Dami Im - 'Crying Underwater'
The 2016 Eurovision runner-up won her selection narrowly ahead of Australia Decides star Jaguar Jonze. With a stunning voice and a passionate fan base, she could take out Queensland's second straight title.
Samantha Jones - 'Bounce'
The former X Factor Winner will represent her home state of Western Australia with the pop song 'Bounce'. She won selection through your votes narrowly ahead of Troye Sivan and Tim Minchin and Briggs.
Hans - 'Oxygen'
The America's Got Talent star and Australia Decides interval act of 2019 was the surprise winner of the South Australian selection ahead of Guy Sebastian, Sia and Electric Fields. Not bad! Can he land a first win for South Australia with his unique style?
Jessica Mauboy - 'Little Things'
Eurovision 2018 star Jessica Mauboy took out a head-to-head battle against the talented artist Baker Boy. This will be her third Aussievision Song Contest in a row finishing 6th in 2018 with 'Then I Met You' and 4th last year with 'Sunday'.
The Wolfe Brothers - 'No Brakes'
This is the second Aussievision Song Contest for the country music stars. They finished 8th in 2018 with 'Ain't Seen it Yet', will they do better in 2020? Tasmania hopes so, they've finished last in both contests just behind the ACT on both occasions.
Australian Capital Territory
Citizen Kay, Genesis Owusu - 'Funny Business'
This will be the first time the ACT hasn't been represented by Peking Duk. This collaboration between Citizen Kay and Genesis Owusu sees two of the ACT's up and coming acts represent them.
The voting will be made up of both a public vote from State and Territories in Australia as well as those in Europe and the Rest of the World, and a jury made up of artists and music experts.
