'Australian Idol' winner to compete in Eurovision

Former “Australian Idol” winner Guy Sebastian was Thursday unveiled as the nation’s wildcard entry into the Eurovision song contest, prompting both excitement and disappointment on social media. The 33-year-old, who won Australia’s first “Idol” singing competition in 2003, will represent his country when it takes part in the kitsch pop contest for the first time this year, the competition’s 60th anniversary. “It’s Eurovision, it’s huge and keeps growing here in Australia which is nice,” Sebastian said. With Eurovision, it’s so eclectic, you never know what you are going to get.
