Last week, SBS announced versatile singer Vanessa Amorosi as one of the first two acts to compete at the Australian national selection Eurovision – Australia Decides.
That very same day, she announced that her new album, Back to Love, will feature the song she will enter at the national final in February 2020 – but remained coy on which track she will choose to perform, telling us to “Listen to my new album Back to Love and see if you can guess which song it is…” Ever since, the fandom has been hyped on figuring out just which song she should choose.
Her fifth album to date and first in ten years, Back to Love features 10 tracks that would be eligible to enter the song contest (the track “Heavy Lies the Head” was commercially released before the September 1 cutoff date and therefore will be ineligible for entry).
Her track, “Hello Me”, opens the album with a a pop ballad about fading love and finding comfort in herself – showcasing an evolved Vanessa from the one we knew a decade ago. And while it all may sound serious and reflective, she still knows how to have fun, with the bang-on-three-minute, dancing in the rain electronic banger “Gimme Your Love” a change of pace and one to get you moving. Her titular track, “Back to Love”, channels the gospel sound Vanessa has been exposed to since calling the US her home a decade ago. There’s a strong mix of ten songs, all with their unique presence and sound.
In the spirit of keeping everyone on their toes, we’re asking you to decide what song you think Back to Love song Vanessa Amorosi should be entering Australia Decides with. Let us know in our poll below. You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote ONE time, so make it count.
You can listen to her album Back to Love on Spotify here:[polldaddy poll=10454485]
Eurovision – Australia Decides will take place at the sunny Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 7 (preview show) and February 8 (Grand Final).
Which song do you think Vanessa Amorosi should select for Australia Decides? Vote in the poll above and let us know in the comments below!
Is that her? Cause that was pretty impressive
Yes, she was 19.
The ones that would fit Eurovision all reminds me of Jessica Mboys song last year… Not sure any of these are fitting for Australia in Eurovision. San Marino on the other hand needs a song for sure ?
Weak songs, none of them are suitable for Eurovision
I wouldn’t mind buying this album and listening to it at home – but that doesn’t mean I think any of these songs would do amazing at Eurovision, or even that I would vote for any of them if they were send to Eurovision.
Here I voted for The Truth Will Set You Free and Love Me Like You Mean It and I hope there will be better songs in Austalia’s nf.
b.t.w. Nice tactic. “You want to know which song I’m competing with? Listen to my ENTIRE album first!”
she should sing a dance number, that’s 4 sure
Back to Love, Run, or Lessons of Love. Hello Me could also be a choice.
The song is give me your love. It’s the only song that is at the time limit of the contest
A lot of songs went to Eurovision whose studio versions were between 3:01 and 3:10, so that doesn’t say anything. Furthermore, she can always cut down a song which is fairly easy since all of them are rather short (and bland).
This sounds like a middle-of-the-road break-up album from A-Z, if there ever was one. She’s got a great set of lungs on her, though. My favorite song here is “Hello Me”. But even this one wouldn’t go far, I fear.
Lessons of Love. The only song I feel that the jury will love it. The others won’t do well with the jury or televote, imo.
Don’t think she will win Australia Decides based on these tracks though.
Ahh I like heavy lies the head the best x_x
All ten songs are not for ESC! Sorry
I’m going with “The Truth will Set You Free” although it’s last place in this poll ^^
It’s the one that sounds original to me and the only one that I want to listen again…
for a 10 years hiatus, this is kinda meh. and she says the word “boy” quite a lot lol
gimme your love sounds cute, but back to love is better
For me ”Back to Love” or “Gimme your love”
“Back To Love” by far.
I’m pretty sure she’s gonna choose “Gimme your love” since it’s exactly 3 minutes long, and with the chorus she could make a Benjamin ingrosso dance you off type of staging. Overall I like her album, and I think there’s several songs that would be a good choice:)
I only like 3 songs- 1, Back to love 2, Better of and 3, Hello me
I’m voting for that song about love.
and now for my serious answer:
1: hello me/ back to love
2: heavy lies the head
You didn’t include “Heavy Lies The Head” which is the song that I feel is the best for Euro-vision. Everything else sounds too generic.
Because it was released before 01. Sep.
OH NO! Personally that is my favorite, reminds me little bit of One Republic songs, so it has a familiar beat. But clearly that song will not be competing.
Have you noticed in Spotify that “Better Off” has a little E next to it, cold that we be the song she prepared for Eurovision? I hope not…
The E stands for explicit.
OMG – I’m definitely getting old for this stuff, Now I’m going to do my best to sound old, “Back in my younger days, we didn’t need to be warned about anything, we just said things without any repercussions. Thanks Troyskie for clarifying 😉
I guess you didn’t read the article…
