Ireland's Eurovision 2022 artist Brooke Scullion has been entertaining fans across Australia as part of her nationwide tour.


The tour is part of OGAE Australia's annual Eurovision preview parties which sees fans watch and vote on the competing entries and, if they're lucky, have a Eurovision artist perform for them.


In previous years Slavko from Montenegro and EyeCue from North Macedonia has joined the party circuit.


This year's preview parties are bigger than ever with Brooke visiting five cities across the country.


The first week of parties in Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide have now been copmleted, so we wanted to look back at some of the highlights of Brooke's trip so far.



Perth


Brooke was welcomed from her long trip at the airport by Kate Hansen of EuroClub Perth and Michael Romano of OGAE Australia.


Brooke is travelling with Ronan Shivers from her team and they were able to spend a few days getting over the jetlag and seeing Perth.

Just a few days later she was performing at her first preview party where she was also joined by Danny and Ash from Australia's Eurovision 2023 entry Voyager, who are also Perth locals.


The party was held at Connections Nightclub and was a sell out!

Highlights of the party were captured in EuroClub Perth's video of the evening.



Melbourne


Before Brooke's second performance, she made the most of her time in Melbourne.


With a number of OGAE Australia members, she attended an AFL game between Western Bulldogs and Brisbane Lions. As a freshly minted Bulldogs fan, she saw her new team win and managed to get a snap with the team mascot.


She also caught up with her Eurovision 2022 colleague and friend Sheldon Riley, did a round of media interviews including JOY 94.9 and had a day at the Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The OGAE Australia Eurovision preview party was held on the day of Brooke's birthday and the sell-out crowd sang "happy birthday" to mark her turning 24.




Also performing at the Melbourne party was Australia's Eurovision 2022 artist, Sheldon Riley!


Sheldon joined Brooke for meet and greets with fans including some members of the Aussievision team.
