Australia ups the ante for Eurovision
    2017-December-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

After finishing ninth at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Australia is upping its game for 2018.

Pop star Jessica Mauboy will represent her country in Lisbon next May, broadcaster SBS announced on Monday.

The 28-year-old instantly becomes one of the most current, established artists to take part in recent years.

Mauboy, who is the first indigenous* artist to reach number one on the Australian album charts, said she would “sing my heart out for Australia.”

She added: “I’m so proud to be officially representing my country and a little bit nervous — mainly about the dress!”

The star previously appeared at the 2014 Eurovision semifinal in Denmark, playing the song “Sea of Flags” during the interval*.

Like many modern Eurovision contestants, Mauboy shot to fame on reality TV, coming second in the 2006 series of “Australian Idol.”

After the show, she released a live album, “The Journey,” which reached top five on charts thanks to the popularity of her cover of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful.”
