The Austrian public broadcaster, Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF), has today confirmed its participation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Instead of turning to ‘Wer singt für Österreich?’ to choose an artist, ORF will pick its representative for Kyiv internally. Although no further details have been announced, we can expect more information in the weeks to come. The last time Austria picked its representative through an internal selection was in 2014, when Conchita Wurst won the contest in Copenhagen and gave the country its first victory in 48 years.

This year Zoë managed to finish 13th in the final, being the televoters 8th favourite entry of the night with ‘Loin d’Ici’, a song entirely in French.

Surprising news here as I believe I read somewhere a few weeks ago that a return for WSFO was all but confirmed. Rumours at the moment are pointing to Russian "turbo metal" band Russkaja being the act that have said yes to ORF, who are based in Vienna and have 4 top 50 albums in the Austrian charts. Personally, they don't seem like an act big enough to be worthy of an internal selection (most recent album charted at #42) and it seems a bit political to be choosing a Russian band to go to Ukraine, but I guess the rumours have come from somewhere...

Vienna, AustriaNewcomer Nathan Trent will represent Austria at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Austrian broadcaster ORF opted for an internal selection for 2017. The team, together with music-experts Eberhard Forcher and Christof Straub, scouted within the young Austrian music scene. Nathan was invited to submit a song and convinced ORF to select him for Kyiv. Nathan's song will be published in February.

Nathan Trent is a singer and songwriter in the genres of Pop and R’n’B. Born in 1992 in Innsbruck, Austria, he was raised bilingually in Italian and German within an artistic family. By sending him to private lessons in violin and piano at the age of three, his parents laid the foundations for his future. Given the fact that his father plays the violin professionally in the orchestra of the National Theatre of Innsbruck, Nathan practically grew up in the theatre. As a child he participated in various plays and musicals which brought him closer to singing at a very young age.

Nathan's résumé shows a four-year singing, acting and dance education, in the styles of Jazz, Contemporary and Commercial. He is still receiving voice lessons from his singing teacher Previn Moore. As for his acting skills, he participated in productions with famous Austrian actors in the prestigious Theater in der Josefstadt and was part of a short movie called Eisland.

Nathan started writing his first songs when he was only eleven years old. After spending more than a decade acquiring new skills, he finally could concentrate on taking his songwriting to the next level. Years of experience with various music programs contributed to the development of producing and finding his personal style and the ability to fully express himself as an artist. Today he writes, composes, arranges and produces his own music. According to his biography, Nathan is known for his Charisma. Professors, directors and producers describe him as being an exceptionally gifted musician with a unique timbre.

Earlier this year Zoë qualified for the Grand Final with Loin d'ici. The big fan favourite finished in 13th place, the best placing for Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest since Conchita won in 2014.
