Barbara Dex Award rename: Lee Lin Chin in the running
Last month, organisers of the annual Barbara Dex award announced it would go through a rebrand including a new name.
The award had been traditionally given to which artist fans voted as "worst-dressed" and was named after the 1993 contestant for Belgium, Barbara Dex who created her own outfit that year.
In 2019, the Belgian site Songfestival.be who run the award, changed the criteria to "most striking outfit".
Fans however, still associated the award with "worst-dressed", so the renaming was decided for 2022.
Fans were able to submit their nominations for a new name and the shortlist is in, and features Australia's own Lee Lin Chin.
Lee Lin Chin's striking fashion when announcing the voting for Australia between 2015 and 2017, was loved by fans all over the world.
Other notable people in the mix are Verka Serduchka, Dana International, Lordi and Silvia Night.
