Generals in Dami Im‘s army of fans have made a major push for her to represent Australia at Eurovision 2015. She topped our hypothetical Australia at Eurovision poll in 2014. And now she’s slaying in our poll in 2015. All the hype and rumours surrounding the Korean-Australian pop sensation and Eurovision have compelled her to speak out on social media.
I just wanted to tell you something. Recently so MANY of you have been asking and wanting me to be on Eurovision and I’ve noticed the enormous effort you were all making to push for that opportunity for me.. I don’t know who is going to represent Australia in Eurovision this year but for me it doesn’t matter anymore! You know why? Because seeing your belief and passion towards me as an artist has given me so much encouragement! It’s helped me to keep moving forward! Of course it would be amazing for whoever that gets to go, but for me no matter what happens I will keep developing as an artist. Sometimes as a normal human being I have my doubts too but realizing that I have people like you who support me no matter the outcome, I get up and start running again. I have an amazing song coming up soon and more exciting plans for this year.. and all I can say is thank you for trusting and showing me that continuous support and I will keep doing what God has blessed me with and make music for the rest of my life.. Thanks and love you all xx
Fortunately for her fans, she hasn’t explicitly ruled out Eurovision. And the line “no matter what happens…” suggests to our ears that her name has at least been passed around by SBS officials. In any event, there’s still hope that SBS will see the light and invite Dami to be the representative from Down Under.
