When Australian broadcaster SBS announced that the country was going to stage their first ever national final for Eurovision, we all got a bit excited. That excitement amplified when the participating artists were gradually revealed.
One notable contestant in Australia Decides 2019 is RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist and Celebrity Big Brother 2018 champion Courtney Act. She will be singing the dance-floor banger “Fight for Love” and recently released a music video for the song.
“Fight for Love” — Courtney Act
The music video is high impact and sultry. It features striking fast-paced choreography and a wide range of ultra-modern, high fashion looks. This complements the song quite well, giving us an impression of what Courtney Act may bring to the Gold Coast stage.
Talking about her song, she says, “A sweet 16 years after Australian Idol, I have the chance to show Australia how I have grown as an artist and performer and I am so excited! To compete to represent Oz in Eurovision is second only to being on that stage in Tel Aviv and singing my lungs out for my country. “Fight for Love” is a dance floor banger all about coming together and fighting for the things we believe in. I think it’s so important to think about the basic human rights of others and to use our collective voices, minds and bodies to lift those people up and bring about change.”
Who is Courtney Act?
Courtney Act is one of the first artists to showcase the art of drag during the first season of Australian Idol. On that show, Courtney showed the judges much more than her music ability. In 2014, she returned to television as one of the top three in the sixth season of the Emmy Award-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race. In 2018, she entered the Celebrity Big Brother UK house and won the competition. Courtney is currently the host of the first bisexual dating show The Bi Life airing on the E! channel worldwide. She also recently presented her own Christmas TV special, Courtney Act’s Christmas Extravaganza, airing on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 2018.
