Isaiah Firebrace australia eurovision jessica mauboy

He’s the teenage X Factor winner set to sing for Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.

And on April 5 Isaiah Firebrace reminded the nation they’re in safe hands in Kyiv as he delivered a stirring acoustic version of his song “Don’t Come Easy” at Adelaide’s Entertainment Centre Theatre.

Isaiah, who is currently supporting his idol Jessica Mauboy on her All The Hits tour, was as pitch perfect as always. In fact, the live version adds texture and emotion to the studio version, suggesting that his live performance at Eurovision will take the song to another level.

The 17-year-old crooner cut a casual figure on stage, wearing a pair of skinny jeans, a check shirt, and an on-trend navy blue jacket, which he left unbuttoned.

As has become routine on the tour, he performed his singles “It’s Gotta Be You” and “Don’t Come Easy”, warming up the crowd before his fellow indigenous performer Jess took to the stage.

Isaiah is currently riding a high — and not merely because of Eurovision.

Two weeks ago “It’s Gotta Be You” went gold in Australia, having already topped iTunes.

He took to Instagram to share the good news, posting a photo of himself holding a massive framed picture of the single with a gold disc.

“So happy to announce that my single #ItsGottaBeYou has gone GOLD in Australia,” he wrote in the caption. “Thank you so much to everyone who has bought, downloaded and streamed it. Huge thanks to #SonyMusicAustralia for all your support. Xx”

On March 7, just moments after SBS announced that Isaiah would sing at Eurovision, he sat down with wiwibloggs for a quick chat.

“I feel just over-the-moon, so thrilled and so excited about all of this,” he said. “It’s pretty crazy.”

How has X Factor helped him?

“I feel like that whole experience was just really good for my performing. It’s just a blessing that I won the X Factor and that only a few months after I’m doing Eurovision.”

Australia has achieved two Top 5 finishes in its two years of competition. Is that a burden?

“A lot of people have been asking how do you feel about Guy coming fifth and Dami coming second,” he said. “I’m very happy for them and what they have done, but with me I just forget about everything that happened in the past and just focus on the now and what I have to do.”

He admits that it wasn’t love-at-first-listen when his team presented him with his Eurovision song.

“When I heard the demo I was a bit skeptical about it. But when I went into the studio with [the composers] and started making it my own, I really fell in love with it.”

Are you loving Isaiah live? Do you think that he can continue Australia’s Top 5 trend? Let us know in the comments box below!

A real good definition of fear is false evidence that appears
to be real. There’s the usual violence that comes along with super hero comics and some language.
The miscellaneous artists do a great job bringing this over the top story
to life full of all the action, destruction and comedy you expect from these characters.

Hm, according to various sources, “It’s Gotta You” peaked at #26 in Australia and stayed on the charts for only one week, but over the last couple oft months it still managed to reach gold status? That’s kinda impressive (and weird), as it must have continuously sold few units until finally reaching 35,000. Isn’t that unusual for a talent search winner’s single? Usually they the sell huge amounts of units at the beginning and then the numbers drop quickly.

“It’s Gotta Be You” also reached no. 15 in Sweden and was awarded a gold disc there as well.

I still don’t know why Sony Australia are given free reign to pick the Australian act each year. It’s simply a promotional slot for them. SBS are the broadcasters yet the cede control to a record label looking to push whatever artist they have on their rosters. Another reason it irks me that “Australia” are yet again taking part. Normal pracice just does not apply.

I do like Isaiah, though.

Interesting live; not a bad performance. I like how Isaiah kept the vocals at a tasteful level and didn’t scream those high notes out. The top B-Flat was well-controlled. He will benefit from more rehearsing, but I like his voice. 🙂
