Seann Miley Moore
Seann Miley Moore is one of many contestants from The Voice Australia taking part in 2022’s edition of Australia Decides. At his audition, he impressed all 4 judges who turned their chairs for him – he ended up on Jessica Mauboy’s team, who represented Australia in Eurovision 2017. UK audiences may recognise him from the 12th series of The X Factor in 2015, in which he placed 10th. He has performed in musicals in Australia, most recently playing ‘Angel’ in RENT.
Seann told SBS that they found an “amazing track from the song portal called ‘My Body'”, and it’s gonna be ‘so fab’. We look forward to hearing it!
Voyager is a band from Perth that was formed in 1999. Their music is described as being “progressive metal”. Their song ‘Runaway’ was shortlisted for Australia Decides 2020 but unfortunately didn’t make the final 10.
Voyager told SBS that it’s “a dream come true” to take part and it’s “the most excited they’ve ever been about an event” despite touring worldwide. Could they go all the way to Turin?
Charley is a singer-songwriter from the Gold Coast. She says her music is ‘very pop’, and like a crossover of Katy Perry and Julia Michaels. Her music is personal and helps her to process events that happen in her life.
She says that “Eurovision has always been a part of [her] world” and that she is “in love with everything it has to offer”. Her song is a “raw, intimate ballad” about her life after a breakup. Will we be seeing Charley win the ticket to Italy?
Jude York is a rising singer from Toowoomba. He describes his music as ‘a warm hug, confidence boost and shoulder to cry on’. He combines synth and piano to create emotional pieces of music.
Ahead of the contest, Jude told SBS that his song is “deeply personal”, and it “means the absolute world that [he] gets to perform it live on the big stage”. Could Jude be the one for Australia? Only time will tell.
One more contestant will be announced soon, as SBS is searching TikTok for the 11th act to take part. If you’re Australian and think you have what it takes, post your performance on TikTok with the caption #EurovisionAustralia for a chance to represent the nation in Italy!
