Hosted on the Gold Coast and broadcast live and exclusively on SBS, avant-garde performance artist Sheldon Riley, six-piece girl group G-Nat!on and charismatic pop star Andrew Lambrou will perform original songs for their chance to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy.

They join three previously announced artists - powerhouse entertainer PAULINI, multi-media artist Jaguar Jonze, and Australia's 2017 Eurovision Song Contest representative, Isaiah Firebrace who will be singing a duet with a soon to be revealed Australian artist, Four more artists are still to be revealed.

Sheldon Riley said

It has always been the highlight, waking up at 5am every year to watch from Australia. Growing up on the Gold Coast, watching Conchita for the first time was proof to me that the world will choose different if given the chance to see it. I am different but I have found my place on mainstream television where I never fit the mould, on radio that has never played music like mine, festivals you'd never think I'd fit the bill for because I always dare to dream... in my fashion and my music always bringing that little bit of Eurovision magic with me every time. Im so proud of the artist I am today, wearing my crystal mask in so many parts of the world. It would be an honour to represent Australia and bring my sparkle to Europe! After all these years of dreaming and creating the artist I am today. Its all coming to life in epic fashion, LIVE on stage!

Emma from G-Nat!on said

We are beyond honoured to be the first ever girl-group to perform at Eurovision - Australia Decides! It is so exciting to be a part of the creativity, inspiration, and diversity that Eurovision brings every year, and we cannot wait to bring our song to life on the national stage. Full of strong harmonies and edgy choreography, our song is dance-pop explosion set to provide the ultimate live show experience. We hope our performance inspires other young people to be strong, powerful, and confident in themselves - see you on the Gold Coast!

Andrew Lambrou said

I'm so thrilled to be a part of Eurovision - Australia Decides 2022! I've grown up watching Eurovision with my family, admiring all that goes into it and seeing artists show their craft to the world, and to be a part of this show is like a dream come true. I'm so excited to show Australia my artistry, and to potentially represent my country in this amazing song contest is the most encouraging thought for me.

Artist Biographies and Additional quotes

Sheldon Riley

Sheldon Riley's mesmerising and emotional sound paired with his Avant-Garde, high fashion style have truly laid the foundation for a disruptive entry into the music industry making him one of Australia's most notable up and coming artists. Sheldons style of music has been described as dark pop a cinematic and passionate expression. Forging a strong, authentic and inclusive path since establishing himself as a musician and artist to remember during his performances on Australian and US knockout television. Off the back of his acclaimed appearances, Sheldon has garnered significant praise and following with his original sound and style. Riley follows his first two single releases with his latest offering AGAIN', a confession to self-sabotage and torment. The orchestral, emotional and new-age cinematic vibe shows again that Riley's original music showcases his empathetic and impactful song writing abilities along with his exquisite and captivating vocals.
