Think youve got what it takes to represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest? SBS, Blink TV and TikTok have today announced a national TikTok Wildcard contest to find an 11th artist to take part in Eurovision - Australia Decides on the Gold Coast in February 2022.

From today, Australians over 16 years of age can be in the running to become the TikTok Wildcard Artist to compete in Eurovision - Australia Decides. Just post a vocal performance clip, up to one minute long, with the hashtag #EurovisionAustralia on TikTok. What entrants sing and how they perform it is up to them! A panel of industry experts will then determine the winner, who will go on to round out a total line-up of 11 incredible artists on the Gold Coast - all chasing their dreams to represent Australia at Eurovision 2022 in Turin, Italy.

The TikTok Wildcard Artist contest via #EurovisionAustralia is open for submissions from today until Sunday, 16 January 2022. There are no restrictions on the number of videos artists can submit. Entrants can submit a video as individuals or as a group with up to six members in total.

For the terms and conditions, and further information about how to enter, visit sbs.com.au/eurovision and follow @sbsaustralia on TikTok.

The addition of the TikTok Wildcard contest to Eurovision - Australia Decides is so exciting that it deserves an ambassador to fly the flag for the new generation of Australian Eurovision entrants - and who better than Eurovision 2016 runner up, Dami Im. Check out Dami's TikTok account for all her tips and tricks on how to curate a powerful, Eurovision-worthy performance.

With the full line-up of artists for Eurovision - Australia Decides almost complete, SBS and Blink TV have a further four more artists to announce for the 2022 line-up. They are: Pop newcomer Charley, the fabulous Seann Miley Moore, Perth's metal quintet Voyager and singer-songwriter Jude York, who will all perform original songs for their chance to represent Australia at Eurovision 2022.

They join six previously announced artists - Sheldon Riley, G-Nat!on, Andrew Lambrou, PAULINI, Jaguar Jonze, and Isaiah Firebrace who will be singing a duet with a soon-to-be-revealed Australian artist.

Charley said

Eurovision has always seemed so out of reach, but now I feel one step closer by performing at Eurovision - Australia Decides on the Gold Coast. I'm so excited as my family and I are huge fans and I can't wait to do them proud. I wrote my song two and a half years ago about my biggest heartbreak, so being able to turn something so dark into something beautiful is a really special moment for me.

Seann Miley Moore said

I dont stand here like I want to be different, I want to be unique, or I want to wear all this to be seen and heard. I stand here as a proud queer man, a proud brown man and most importantly, a proud Australian - it comes down to authenticity and happiness. Doing all these things make me happy. They make me feel alive. Thats what matters. Eurovision is about celebrating your pride and I'm ready to give you all the fabulous joy baby! EveryBODY is welcome in Seann Miley Moore's world - so Australia, pack your bags, we're going to the Gold Coast! xoxo SMM.

Voyagers Danny Estrin (vocals and keytar), said

Eurovision is the greatest show on earth, so getting a chance to represent Western Australia and to showcase our keytar driven brand of heavy music is one of the most exciting and surreal opportunities to ever come our way!! So, thank you Australia for giving us the opportunity to take you on a voyage with us in what has been a lifelong dream.

Jude York said

When I found out that my song was selected from the portal, I was already incredibly honoured and excited. Now to know that I'm also performing it live on one of Australia's biggest platforms is more than I could have possibly asked for! The song is all about believing that dreams do come true, and I feel like mine really are right now!

SBS Head of Entertainment,

Emily Griggs, said:

Eurovision - Australia Decides has always nurtured and supported emerging artists, and this year we'll be discovering new talent with the TikTok Wildcard contest. We are excited to begin a new chapter with our long-term production partner Blink TV, and TikTok, and have the privilege to bring new talent into the light and onto the stage. They could even end up on the world stage at the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy.

We also welcome Charley, Voyager, Seann Miley Moore, and Jude York to our fantastic line-up. These artists give fans an indication of the scale and raw creativity that will be at the heart of Eurovision - Australia Decides 2022. This is going to be an epic show!

Ollie Wards, Director of Music TikTok Australia and New Zealand:

Were excited to discover and add a TikTok Wildcard artist to this already incredible Eurovision - Australia Decides line-up. TikTok is now where music and artists are discovered, with opportunities for artists to connect with new fans every day. This additional opportunity for a great local act isnt an every day gig though, where they could represent Australia on one of the worlds biggest musical stages. We cant wait to see and elevate some amazing entries!

Creative Director of Eurovision - Australia Decides, Paul Clarke, said:

These four new artists complete our 10, but at Eurovision everyone is welcome. That's why it's such an exciting initiative with TikTok to find the TikTok Wildcard Artist for 2022 from all the millions of users of TikTok in Australia - one of them will be on our stage in February. Four great new artists, KEiiNO, and the TikTok Wildcard Artist! This is one of our biggest announcements ever, now we can concentrate on making Australia Decides a brilliant show - please come alon
