Who cares if people are wondering how a Korean born Aussie made her way to a song contest in Europe? We totally rock at Eurovision. Dami Im was clearly a crowd favourite and absolutely nailed her performance. I had goosebumps throughout her performance! She couldn’t have looked any happier with how that went and the whole country was behind her.
The song: Sound Of Silence. Written and produced by Sydney-siders Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci, AKA DNA, who have also worked with Shannon Noll, The Veronicas, Ricky Martin as well as Delta Goodrem’s current single Dear Life.
