Kylie Minogue's current hit single 'Padam Padam’ has been selected to represent Australia in the OGAE Song Contest 2023.


The International Eurovision Fan Group OGAE has been holding the OGAE Song Contest each year since 1986.


The contest sees OGAE national clubs enter an original song from their nation released in the previous 12 months and sung in one of the country's official languages.



The OGAE Australia club has been busy over the last few weeks shortlisting songs and voting for who will represent Australia. Kylie dominated the vote!


Full results from OGAE Australia:

  1. Kylie Minogue - 'Padam Padam' - 698 points

  2. Flume feat. MAY-A 'Say Nothing' - 416

  3. Jessica Mauboy - 'Automatic' - 396

  4. MAXO - 'Can't Hold Me Back' - 310

  5. Casey Barnes - 'Get To Know ya' - 286


'Padam Padam' was released in May this year and is off her upcoming 16th studio album 'Tension'. The song has seen Kylie return back to the charts around the world. 'Padam Padam' has reached No. 8 in the UK, No. 19 in Australia and charted throughout Europe and South America.


Kylie was set to represent Australia in last year's OGAE Song Contest with her hit song 'A Second To Midnight' with Years & Years. Unfortunately the 2022 edition of the OGAE Song Contest was cancelled.



The OGAE Song Contest will be hosted by the Australian club after they won in 2021 with Tones and I's 'Fly Away'. It was Australia's second win ever in the OGAE Song Contest. Australia last won in 2017 when Eurovision royalty Dami Im took the trophy with the song 'Fighting for Love'.


Voting in the contest will be done through the official fan clubs.
