Australia selects Voyager for the OGAE Second Chance Contest 2022
OGAE Australia have selected Voyager's entry 'Dreamer' from 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022 as their entry for the OGAE Second Chance Contest.
'Dreamer' by Voyager was the runner-up at 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022 on the Gold Coast. Voyager came third in the Jury vote and first in the televote with 97 points, 3 points short of Sheldon Riley who is currently in Turin competing at Eurovision 2022.
Voyager will now go on to compete up against other Eurovision national final artists in the OGAE Second Chance Contest.
This year's OGAE Second Chance Contest will be hosted by Norway, as KEiiNO won last year's contest with their anthemic entry 'Monument'. It is Norway's fourth win ever in the OGAE Second Chance Contest.
The OGAE Second Chance has been running since 1987 and is run by the international branch of Eurovision fan clubs known as Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision, English translation General Organisation of Eurovision Fans, or OGAE for short.
The Contest sees each country’s club choose one song that didn’t win their national final to represent them in what is essentially a ‘Second Chance’ (hence the contest name).
Much like Eurovision, each nation’s club votes for their favourites and comes up with their collated 12, 10, 8 points down to 1. The scores are tallied and a winner is chosen. The results will be out later on in the year.
Congratulations to Voyager!!
