Guy Sebastian made a surprising song choice for Australia’s entry in the 2015 Eurovision competition – a contemporary R&B-style track called ‘Tonight Again’, which he wrote and recorded in just one week.

Sebastian said he wanted to “try and write something new” for Australia’s debut on the Eurovision stage, writing a song that captured the moments in life you wish wouldn’t end.

Sebastian will perform during the Grand Final stage of the competition as a fast-tracked, wild-card entrant.

Blink TV Australia director Paul Clarke, whose company is producing the SBS coverage of the songfest, said Sebastian was initially thinking power ballad.

“But this new song is a celebration of the grand final night and our participation, and we couldn’t be more excited about it,” he said.
