The band performed their progressive pop metal trag “Promise” alongside 25 finalists from competing countries. The official results were determined by combining the scores of the voting juries and viewing public in 37 countries, as well as the rest of the world for the first time. Loreen from Sweden won the contest with her song “Tattoo,” followed by Käärijä from Finland in second place and Noa Kirel from Israel in third place with her song “Unicorn.”
Voyager expressed their gratitude for the love and support they received from Australia and the world throughout their Eurovision experience. They were honored to represent Australia as the first band to do so and are excited to continue their journey with the release of their new album and upcoming tour. Voyager’s performance, complete with custom sequined outfits by Perth-based label Zhivago and ’80s staging with a Toyota MR2, was well-received by Liverpool and the world. Their Eurovision appearance is the perfect launchpad for their eighth album “Fearless in Love,” set to be released on July 14 via Season of Mist, with homecoming tour dates in Australia and Europe to follow.
