Austria has decided! The Austrian song at Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam is "Alive" and will be performed by Vincent Bueno

Vincent Bueno has been internally picked by the Austrian broadcaster ORF as representative in Rotterdam at Eurovision Song Contest 2020.

The last week's rumors about Vincent Bueno as Austria's Eurovision hope have intensified. Today ORF has now finally confirmed that Bueno will go to Rotterdam in May 2020.

Vincent is thrilled to represent Austria at Eurovision 2020:

– Wow, even thinking about the fact that I am going to participate in the song contest gives me goosebumps. The Eurovision Song Contest is like the Eurocup for musicians and singers. The huge stage, all those artists doing their absolute best, all the songwriters and producers of Europe gathering in one place to celebrate their work while at the same time stepping into the ring – it is breathtaking and formidable. Let’s go Austria!, says Vincent.

Vincent's song is called "Alive", and will be released later next year.
