Austrian broadcaster ORF has unveiled popstar and professional dancer Kaleen as their representative at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

The 29-year-old from Upper Austria will represent her country with a techno-inspired pop track:

‘I think I haven’t fully grasped the fact yet, that I’ll be standing on that stage as an artist myself. I am in love with this world of lights and cameras and believe it’s a privilege to take the audience on a journey. I worked hard for this, and I am extremely proud. I am very looking forward to showing the world what I can do!’

ORF Program Director, Stefanie Groiss-Horowitz, added: 

‘With Kaleen, we are sending an artist who is versatile – she sings, she dances, she choreographs, and she is an absolute Song Contest insider. We are going to put on a big show in Malmö!’

About Kaleen

Performing has been part of Kaleen's life from an early age; as soon as she could walk, she started dancing at home in the living room when music shows were on TV. 

She then took her first ballet lessons and quickly expanded her repertoire to include commercial, tap, jazz, musical, modern, Latin, and standard; winning her first national championship at the age of seven – the first of more than 100 national and European championships, and five world championships.

As well as an accomplished dancer, Kaleen is also a talented singer. Her first self-produced single was released in September 2021 under her own label Wifi Records, and her debut album Stripping Feelings, was released in September 2023. 

Since 2018, Kaleen has been involved in the Eurovision Song Contest, initially as a stand-in lead artist for the rehearsals of several countries and as a dancer and choreographer for the interval acts in Lisbon. In 2021, she was the creative director for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for Spain and Bulgaria, as well as the creative director for Spain and stage director for the entire production in 2022. 

Last year, she supported Austria, Armenia, Germany, and Georgia with their stage performances at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool.

….now it’s Kaleen’s turn in the spotlight!
