So, SBS have announced the next two entries in the final of Australia Decides. Mitch Tambo and IOTA have been selected to compete with hope to represent Australia in Eurovision Song Contest next year.
Mitch Tambo is known from his appearance in Australia's Got Talent, he only lasted one week, but is now signed with Sony Music Entertainment Australia. His music is known for combining traditional sounds with contemporary beats.
“I’m thrilled to be part of Eurovision Australia Decides in 2020 and to get the chance to perform on the world’s biggest stage. Eurovision songs often mix elements of traditional and contemporary sounds, which is exactly what I set out to do in my own music. Most importantly, it brings different cultures together all under the banner of music, which is a beautiful thing!” says Mitch Tambo
iOTA is known for appearing in movies like The Great Gatsby and Mad Max: Fury Road, but he is also known for being a writer, composer and voice-over artist. He also also starred in The Rocky Horror Show and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He's a really talented artist with a long record in the entertainment industry.
“I’m not your typical music competition kind of guy, but I am attracted to the Eurovision Song Contest for the colour and movement, music and performance, light and shade, creativity and self-expression, singing and working an audience” says IOTA
Josh Martin, SBS Commissioning Editor for Entertainment's answer about this:
“We’re thrilled to welcome Mitch and iOTA to this really exciting line-up. Together with Casey Donovan and Vanessa Amorosi, these four artists start to give fans an indication of the scale, diversity and raw creativity that will be at the heart of Eurovision – Australia Decides 2020. With six more acts still to announce, this is going to be an epic show!”
