Two Australians will be competing in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest after NSW-born Anja Nissen beat nine other finalists for the right to represent Denmark.
After narrowly finishing second last year in Denmark’s Eurovision selection competition – the Danish Melodi Grand Prix – Nissen triumphed on Saturday in the city of Herning with her song ‘Where I Am’.
Anja, 21, brought up on her Danish parents’ farm west of Sydney, won ‘The Voice’ on Australian TV in 2014 when she was coached by Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am.
Anja has a very close association with the Talent Development Project since she was a young high school student and graduated from the project in 2012. We wish her love and success over the coming months.
