Montaigne reveals details about her Eurovision 2021 performance

Montaigne has released a follow up vlog after she released her first Eurovision vlog three weeks ago.

In her new vlog Montaigne mentions the release of her new Eurovision 2021 song ‘Technicolour’. She revealed she wrote part of the song at home and the rest she co wrote it with Dave Hammer. The inspiration for the song were Charlie XCX and Rina Sawayama.

Montaigne explains that the song is fun and the Mardi Gras performance was used as an official video in lieu of an Australia Decides winning performance, which we didn’t have this year, to which Montaigne jokingly says “I am Australia Decides”.

She also revealed more about the team behind her performance and look and the process for the taping of her back up performance, with new choreography.

  • Styling - Josie McManis

  • Make-up - Michelea Simone

  • Hair - Ricki Crisillio

  • Costume design - Miriam Sedic together with Josie McManis
