After becoming one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, Tones and I now wants to be involved in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
Australian star Tones and I was a guest on Fitzy and Whippa’s show on Sydney-based station NOVA FM, where she confirmed that she was asked to write a song for this year’s contestant, Montaigne. Unfortunately, lockdown made it impossible. The singer also added that she’s ready to be part of Eurovision next year.
In the interview, the singer claimed that after she wasn’t able to get to the studio, she spoke to SBS and said that she wanted to be involved with the contest. She also said:
“I want to help write the song and the artwork. I love writing songs, doing the film clips… so next year I don’t mind if I sing, but I want to be a part of the artistic side”.
In September 2020, it was revealed that Eurovision – Australia Decides would return to select the Australian entry for Eurovision 2022. Further details have yet to be revealed.
