Australia: Montaigne | Technicolour

Artist: Montaigne
Song: Technicolour
Semi Final 1: First Half

Australia doesn't mess around with its approach to Eurovision - having ranked near the top of the scoreboard more often than not since they first took part in 2015. Aria Award-winner Montaigne returns this year as the country's representative with her song, Technicolour - an ear-splitting tale of courage, vulnerability and solidarity.

While the singer's stage presence may be striking - she now sports colourfully cropped hair, heavy makeup and chains -  her song is pretty much the opposite. Well, in truth the song is not too bad, it's just Montaigne's performance of it that doesn't cut the mustard.

Dami Im, Isaiah Firebrace and Kate Miller-Heidke all brought accomplished vocals to Eurovision and, in Kate's case, the bonkers factor. Unfortunately, Montaigne brings neither if her recent live performance of Technicolour is anything to go by (see above). She was whiny and off-key throughout, something which will not convince viewers to rush to vote for her.

Personally, the song does nothing for me and 2021 could well be the first year that Australia misses the Grand Final.

What are your thoughts?
