Can we get Shannon Noll to Eurovision?

There’s no doubt that Shannon Noll‘s stock has risen tenfold since an online petition called for his inclusion on this year’s Groovin The Moo lineup. Although Australia’s favourite son didn’t make the cut this year, the people are clearly not satisfied.


Ironically enough, after Guy Sebastian repped Australia at Eurovision last year there is now a change.org petition calling for Nollsy to be our man on the Stockholm stage. Sebastian nabbed fifth place, but could this be the chance for Noll to surpass his Australian Idol rival and take a place on the podium? We bloody well hope so.

Patrick Connors started the petition two days ago, and so far it has gained 353 signatures with a goal of 500. On the petition page Connors passionately laid out his case:

What better man to represent Australia have than the pride and joy of Condobolin, NSW and Australian Idol 2003 runner-up, Shannon Noll. Can you honestly think of one man that embodies the Australian ideals of persistence and mateship more than Shannon Noll? A measly fifth place wouldn’t be enough for Nollsy, the man would very well lead us to 1st given his calibre.

We the people of Australia beg you, send Shannon Noll to Eurovsion. Nothing would make us prouder than seeing Nollsy onstage belting his heart out in Stockholm. Make it so that all of Europe will stop to watch Australia shine on the world stage. After all, as the man himself says: ‘What about me?‘”

You can get behind Nollsy’s bid and sign the petition here. You know you want to, the man is as Australian as Vegemite.

In the meantime, if you haven’t started following the man’s Faceboook page do so.
