G’day, Scandinavia! Not long ago Denmark’s state broadcaster announced that Australian singer Jessica Mauboy will be the second semi-final interval act for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Now it has emerged that Jessica will sing her latest single “Never Be the Same” along with another song that she’s writing with Iian Kidron just for Eurovision.
2Day FM, Sydney’s No.1 hit music station, confirmed the news via Twitter on April 18. Jess also retweeted their message:
Since the big announcement Jess has been on numerous shows in Australia. Watch ’em below y’all!
Jess performed “Never Be the Same” on the Today show, Australia’s longest-running breakfast television program. Jessica tells Richard that her number is “one of the best songs I’ve ever written.” She discusses being a guest at this year’s Eurovision and said “37 countries are in the competition and yeah I’m apart of that, so it’s yeah pretty amazing.”
Jessica was also on Mornings, an Australian talk show. Jess sang a part of ABBA’s “Waterloo” for hosts Richard and Sonia and oozed excitement. “It’s been televised in our country for so many years now and I’ve been watching it since I was 11 years old.”
