Eurovision is just around the corner, so it's time to dust off your sequin hot-pants, invite your friends over, and get ready for a night of yelling at the television and updating your Twitter every five minutes with things only people watching the event will understand.
This year is Australia's third year of being invited to compete and our chosen representative for 2017 is none other than 'X-Factor' winner Isaiah Firebrace. From a large Aboriginal family in Moama, Isaiah is already achieving huge success around the world, with his song 'Gotta Be You' charting in 16 countries, while also making a difference locally, inspiring young Australians by appearing in local schools.
With less than a week to go, Isaiah had his first rehearsal in Kyiv, Ukraine last Sunday, and took a ride on the giant turntable he will b using as a prop as part of his performance.
Australia came so close to a win in 2016 with Dami Im coming in second place,so it's no secret that Australia will be watching closely and hoping Isaiah will get us over the line, and into victory in 2017.
