In 2016 Australia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest for the second time after making its debut in 2015 when Guy Sebastian finished a credible fifth in the Grand Final. However, unlike in 2015, Australia had to qualify from the Semi-Finals in Stockholm. In part eleven of our Stockholm Revisited series we follow the journey of Australian representative Dami Im who rose to the challenge and finished second in the Grand Final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with her song The Sound of Silence.
This song is about the loneliness that everybody sometimes feels. The Sound of Silence is something that everyone can relate to at some point in their lives, no matter how happy they may look on the outisde, everybody feels lonely at times.
