This year Australia is going to be represented by the talented Montaigne. The singer was born on August 14 1995, in Sydney, Australia. Her real name is Jessica “Jess” Alyssa Cerro. Her artistic name was inspired by the 16th-century philosopher Michel de Montaigne.

Her first single “I Am Not The End” was released in 2014. In 2016, she released her first album “Glorious Heights” and reached the 4th place on the Australian charts. Her second album was released on August 2019, which reached the 19th place on the local charts. Later that year, she was announced as one of the 10 participating acts of the Australian national final. On February 2020, she participated at “Australia Decides” – the Australian national final – and won it with the song “Don’t Break Me”. After Eurovision’s cancellation last year, Montaigne was announced as the 2021 Australian representative.

Her song “Technicolour” was composed by Jessica herself and Dave Hammer.

The song is going to compete in the first half of the first semifinal.
