Some exciting news has just come out of the land down under, y’all! During the annual Carols by Candlelight festivities on Christmas Eve, Channel 9, the brains behind The Voice Australia, revealed that Delta Goodrem — a favourite to represent the Aussies at Eurovision 2016 — will once again serve on the judging panel.
The lineup for The Voice tends to change every year in Australia. In the past we’ve had the likes of Seal, Keith Urban, Will.I.Am and Kylie Minogue grace the big red chairs. In 2016 we will see a return from Joel and Benji Madden from the band Good Charlotte and Jessie J, as well as a debut from Eurovision 1997 host and Irish sweetheart, Ronan Keating.
But it’s Delta who is fueling the most hype and the team at wiwibloggs is 100% getting behind #TeamDelta in 2016. It’s not just because we love her, but also because the rumours swirling about her potential Eurovision run still seem plausible. The blind auditions for The Voice have already been filmed and it’s expected that the live shows won’t start until July. In theory that gives Delta plenty of free time to promote her hypothetical Eurovision entry and to compete in Stockholm.
The news follows a busy few months. Delta recently got behind Australia’s Junior Eurovision 2015 entrant Bella Paige and co-wrote Bella’s song “My Girls“. Delta has also released the successful single “Wings” and wrapped up her first ever lead in a musical, playing the coveted role of Grizabella in Cats. We hope that her successes at home inspire her to take her talents abroad….to Stockholm.
