Straight from Down Under and after a day-long trip, Australia’s Alexa Curtis turned up and turned out on the Junior Eurovision 2016 red carpet.

And when she did, our William had the chance of chatting with her. Trust us: You are going to love The Voice Kids Australia winner and JESC 2016 star!

Alexa Curtis interview at the Opening Ceremony

Alexa told us that she instantly said yes to SBS’ proposal and that she’s not worried about her final placing: “I’m not like ‘I’m gonna win, I’m gonna be top five’, I just want to have fun, make friends and… do the Alexa!” That’s the attitude, y’all!

And of course, to honour to her homeland, Alexa gave us a koala and a kangaroo. But in a cuddly toy version, of course. Still, we fell in love with her and this boost of Aussie realness. Like We are, we are, we aaare loving her!

Australia is not that close to Malta, so our girl had to endure a rather long trip: 14 hours to Dubai and then another six to Malta. Props to Australia for their commitment!

Just like last year’s Bella Paige, Alexa is not only a music star, she’s also a fashion icon. And we mean it. Besides nailing her tune “We Are”, she also designed her Red Carpet gown. And of course, she looked Fa-bu-lous!

We could talk for hours about Alexa Curtis’ fabulousity, just as much as she could talk about her song. In short, she wants to encourage unity and raise everyone’s voice. Power to the people!

On Sunday, she’ll be the 14th to perform. How do you think she will do? Will she equal Dami Im’s success in the adult version? Will she improve Bella Paige’s 8th place? Share your feelings below!
