She won Eurovision – Australia Decides in early February. 

And now Montaigne has her sights set on Eurovision proper.

The “Don’t Break Me” hitmaker has announced she’ll travel to attend two pre-parties before the contest.

She’s set to play the London Eurovision Party on March 29. After that she’ll travel to Amsterdam for Eurovision in Concert on April 4.

The news makes her only the fourth Australian act to travel to Europe ahead of Eurovision.

Past Australian acts Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy both made the trip previously. Kate Miller-Heidke also made the trip to Amsterdam in 2019. Dami Im and Isaiah Firebrace are the only Australian acts to have skipped the preparties altogether.

The star shared the news to her 46,000 followers on Instagram:

Montaigne joins 13 confirmed acts in London and 13 in Amsterdam.

Montaigne’s road to Eurovision

Montaigne won the Australian ticket to Eurovision over a month ago.

She is Australia’s sixth act in the competition and the second to participate under the five year deal signed in 2019. The deal – inked between the EBU and broadcaster SBS – has confirmed Australian participation until 2023.

The star also disclosed she’s working with storyboard artist Sasha Mutch for her Eurovision performance.

Australia competes in the first half of Semi-Final 1, which many fans say is fast shaping up to be a bloodbath. But, as one of the only countries with a 100% qualification streak, Australia should be in a strong position to advance.

Kate Miller-Heidke led Australia to respectable top ten result in Tel Aviv.

“Zero Gravity” won the first semi-final and finished ninth in the grand final.

Miller-Heidke also received the prestigious Marcel Bezençon Artistic Award.

I find all of these prediction hilarious. If everyone is so sure their prediction is right can I put an order in for the winning lottery numbers please I’d be much obliged.

I’m an Australia fan and loved Australia every year except this one. The clown mime outfit and staging is bad and the song is bland. I can’t see it doing well in the first semi final. If it qualifies it will barely do so. But hey if Australia wins it all I’ll be happy. I might even travel to Sydney for the competition. I just don’t see a good result this year unfortunately.

It’s true. The staging is a train wreck. How is this not obvious to everyone?

LOL Why do you haters all think the staging will be the same? The staging concept has already been revealed last week and it sounds amazing.

Montaigne winning Eurovision is the UK’s best chance of the UK hosting Eurovision in 2021 so it’s only appropriate she play a show in London prior 🙂

Y’all said the same thing last year and it didn’t stop Australia from actually winning the semi final

It’s true. The staging is awful and the song is bland. I want Australia to qualify but this might not do it especially in the really tough semi final 1. I loved Australia every year until this year.

Wow someone is petty. I’m so ready for you haters to shut the hell up when the rehearsal of the first semi begins. Just wait and see. You people can’t predict shits when it comes to Australia and this year will be no difference.

Off topic but the new single of Eleni Foureira deserves an article about it and a reaction video. That girl took it to the next level.

Only the fourth? There’s only been six! That’s two thirds. 🙂

I hope she films her postcard on this trip too. #Flygskam

I guess it’s a typo. It should be “already the fourth Australian”, otherwise the next paragraph wouldn’t make any sense.
