Didirri competed at 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' in 2020 with his emotional ballad 'Raw Stuff', where he finished in 4th place. This year his latest single 'Begin Again' has made it onto the Hottest 100 list. The beautiful ballad with stunning lyrics was released back in March.


Electric Fields


'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2019 runner-ups Electric Fields have been listed for another year on the Hottest 100 this time it's their collaboration with Malyangapa, Barkindji woman Barkaa, 'Fight For Me'.

Jaguar Jonze's song 'Little Fires' was her entry at 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022. Her emotional performance won the jury vote and finished in third place overall.



Jessica Mauboy


Australia's Eurovision 2018 representative Jessica Mauboy has this year made it to the Hottest 100 list with her stunning duet with Tasman Keith 'Heaven With U'.



The song is the fifth and final single from Tasman's debut studio album, ‘A Colour Undone’.

'make me feel so..' also made the cut. For the song Montaigne was joined fellow Eurovision 2021 entrant, Daði Freyr from Iceland.



Montaigne's impressive cover of Britney Spears' ballad 'Lucky' for Triple J's Like a Version series also makes an appearance. Like A Version is a segment on Australian radio station Triple J. Every week a musician or band comes into the studio to play one of their own songs and cover a song they love.
