I had the privilege of attending a one-off concert by Conchita at the Sydney Opera House last night. It was a special occasion for many reasons: seeing Conchita of course, being there for the reveal of Australia’s entry this year, being inside such an iconic venue and the general fact that I am here in the first place!
It was a truly special evening and Conchita put on a stunning and heartfelt show with contributions from a couple of great Australian drag artists as well as the lovely Guy Sebastian (who represented Australia last year to great success).
The reveal of the Australian entry this year (Dami Im) wasn’t such a surprise as it seemed to be widely expected to be her but she showed in a performance of “Waterloo” that she has a very fine voice. We’ll have to wait a few more days before we hear her actual entry though.
Overall it was a magical night and one I won’t soon forget!
