Montaigne reveals Diane Warren song in the mix for Australia's Eurovision entry



Australia's Eurovision entrant Montaigne has revealed songwriting legend Diane Warren has shared a potential song with her for Rotterdam.


Montaigne revealed the details during a broadcast on her Twitch channel @actualmontaigne in late December, saying:


"I had a call with a lady called Diane Warren.... she's one of the greatest songwriters that time has ever seen.........she kind of sent me a song to consider for Eurovision. She was 'I have this song for you, give it a shot, maybe it's good for Eurovision' and it is a hit! The song is immediately recognisable as a hit.


It's not super my..... like I don't think it's a lyric I would ever write and I don't know if it's a style that identify with. She said 'have it, give the production a shot, it might feel good if you make the production your own'.


But the thing is, I have this other song I wrote that I fucking love, I think it's so fun, it's like right up my alley, this style I've been trying to achieve for all of this year, basically. So I just have to work on both of them and see which I prefer for Eurovision... and work on other songs as well!"


Diane Warren has had nine No.1 songs on the US Billboard charts and some songs you may recognise of hers are Toni Braxton's 'Unbreak My Heart', Cher's 'If I Could Turn Back Time', Starship's 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now', LeAnn Rimes's 'Can't Find the Moonlight', Aerosmith's 'I Dont Want To Miss A Thing' and Celine Dion's 'Because You Loved Me'.


Warren has also played a part in Eurovision, collaborating with Andrew Lloyd-Webber on 'It's My Time' for the United Kingdom in 2009 which placed 5th.


We will have to wait and see which direction Montaigne and her team go with for Australia with details on when the song will be announced yet to come.
