Montaigne features in two-part Eurovision series on YouTube

YouTube and the European Broadcasting Union have partnered to produce a two-part original series that spotlights  artists.

Part one premiered early this morning and featured Australian singer-songwriter, , performing ‘Don’t Break Me’.

As part of YouTube’s #StayHome #WithMe campaign, a number of YouTube creators and Eurovision superfans have united to front the new original content series.

The series features all 41 songs from this year’s artists, plus additional content from influencers.

After the unprecedented cancellation of the Eurovision this year, local broadcaster SBS also confirmed that Montaigne will represent Australia at next year’s event.

While her spot on one of the world’s biggest stages is confirmed for next year, Eurovision rules stipulate this year’s songs will not be eligible to compete in 2021.

Montaigne was upbeat about the decision, saying she was “so happy to receive this good news during such times” and will return to her writing room to pen a new song.

Australia joins Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Israel, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine who have all given their 2020 artists a second chance.
