As one of the earliest artist announcements of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, it has now been three months since Australia announced Jessica Mauboy as their representative. It has been a long wait, but last week we finally got to hear Jessica’s song “We Got Love” along with a fun, creative music video.
“We Got Love” was written by Jessica alongside DNA (Anthony Egizzi and David Musumeci) who also wrote the songs for previous Australian entrants Dani Im and Isaiah. The track is a mid-tempo, catchy number with a powerful, inspiring message of how humanity can always show love and compassion, even in the face of adversity. It was inspired by some of the tragic events which have taken place throughout the world in the past few months.

This is not Jessica’s first appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest. She previously appeared at the 2014 contest in Copenhagen, performing her hit song “Sea Of Flags” in the interval of the second semi-final. Jessica delivered a fun, energetic performance of the song and we cannot wait to see what she will bring to her performance this May.
Jessica will follow in the footsteps of fellow Australian musicians Guy Sebastian, Dani Im and Isaiah when she takes to the stage in Lisbon. They all gave strong, polished performances which saw each of them earn a top ten finish.
After Salvador Sobral won for Portugal, last year, with “Amar Pelos Dois”; the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 will be hosted at the Altice Arena, Lisbon, Portugal; with the two Semi-Finals taking place on 8 May and 10 May and the Grand Final taking place on 12 May. A total of 43 countries will compete in the contest.
