'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022 artist Sheldon Riley has revealed a spoiler of his eagerly awaited Australia Decides song.


Over the course of last 24 hours Sheldon posted on his Instagram stories glimpses of his preparation for show day as he prepared for the first day of 'John Foreman's Aussie Pops Orchestra - New Year's Eve & The Night Before' show.




During the show Dami introduces Sheldon for his world premiere of his 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' live performance, and we get a 15 second spoiler of Sheldon's Australia Decides song with the orchestra!


The title and details of the song have not been officially revealed yet. Though we did some digging and according to the APRA AMCOS website it is highly likely the song is called 'Not The Same' a self penned track by Sheldon Riley.


Through his Instagram account Sheldon also shared his rehearsals with the orchestra and with Eurovision royalty Dami Im who he is performing a duet with in the show.
