Jessica Mauboy will represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. She had been internally chosen on the 11th of December. She had previously performed at the Eurovision stage as the interval act at ESC 2014, a year before the debut of the country. Her song We Got Love was released this week.
I kind of expected more from Australia this year. I think the song is nice, but it’s not that big. The chorus isn’t that different from the rest of the song. I think this song will have to depend on the performance, because the song on itself isn’t strong enough. It does have some catchy parts and a nice Eurovision message. But I don’t get a special feeling when listening to the song. Maybe that will change a lot after I’ve seen a live performance or some hints of what the staging will look like. I just hope to see something huge, that definitely makes an impact. Only that way, the song will make an impact as well. 6/10
