    Australia are going down the national selection route again and they've just announced the first two names - Pop Idol Australia winner Casey Donovan and Vanessa Amorosi!



    VERY excited to see what Vanessa brings to the table, and Casey's a great live performer too so this is an excellent start.

    Very encouraging start.

    I’m not sure Vanessa will deliver the banger we’re hoping for, although I do like her most recent single

    What a coup - I can't believe Vanessa Amorosi and the winner of Idol 2004 were available!

    I do think these names are a step up from last year.

    And if we could get someone like a Vanessa Amorosi I’d be over the moon.

    ^ IDK, Sheppard were in the first reveal last year I'm sure and I think they were a more promising start in terms of recent relevance and success.

    Vanessa's album has just been released and her entry is on it somewhere. There are a few that clock in around 3:06-3:11 and in theory could be cut down, but this one comes in at three minutes exactly..

    Vanessa has a great voice so would be a fine selection.

    I mean it has been a decade since Vanessa had anything resembling a hit, but I'd say (and an Australian would obviously have to confirm this) that given how big she was at her peak, she's a pretty impressive signing. Weren't Sheppard basically a one hit wonder?

    Sheppard's discography is only one big hit, but Coming Home did well (given I think streaming was into the charts by then?) and the 2018 album hit #1 so they are still a decent sized act.

    This is the song most likely to be Vanessa's entry I'd say. It's pretty good.

    Having listened to the album, Lessons of Love feels like it has the most Eurovision appeal.

    The next two acts are the less exciting (in terms of name recognition) Mitch Tambo and iOTA.
