Australia’s Guy Sebastian flew halfway around the world to promote his Eurovision 2015 song — and by golly, he’s going to get the most out of all those miles! On Saturday evening he sang at Eurovision in Concert and the response to his first live performance of “Tonight Again” was amazing. The promotional video was good, but he elevated the song to great on stage. Keeping true to the song’s title, he relived it all again on Sunday evening with another live performance on the Dutch show Life 4 You.
The hosts asked him about his Eurovision in Concert experience and he said he was really impressed with the acts. It was the first time he had heard the other contestants and he thinks Sweden’s Mans will be big competition. He also said the Swedish star is super nice, but we already knew that. (Have you heard him talk about his dog Messi?!)
When co-host Carlo Boszhard asked him about the Dutch singer Trijntje, Guy made it pretty clear that he doesn’t like the Dutch song “Walk Along” that much: He chose to focus on Trijntje’s “amazing voice” rather than her “good song”. Carlo pressed him about the “good song” bit, eventually prompting Guy to say it’s good but absolutely not as good as his own. We’re sure some of you agree.
Guy said that when Australia’s SBS asked him to represent the country he couldn’t say no, as it felt like a huge honour to be asked. That was the easy part. Choosing the song was a lot harder. He had a lot of songs he wanted to sing, but they asked him to write a new song in just three days. Fun fact: The hat he wears on the show is the same one as in his official video clip. He’s a little worried people will think he only has one.
He also joked that his performance will include mechanical kangarooes shooting fire, but later admitted that in reality it will feature some fancy streetlights and bring the fun.
Guy’s live performance on Life 4 You
Last year the hosts of Life 4 You invited Conchita Wurst to appear ahead of Eurovision. Do you think that’s a sign that Guy will be our Eurovision winner? Let us know below!
