She’s done it! Aussie sensation Dami Im has made it through to the finals of the Eurovision 2016 Song Contest! YAYYY!

Dami was chosen to go into the finale after her amazing performance of her hit song The Sound Of Silence, as she took to the stage on Friday at the Globe Arena in Stockholm, for her semi-final performance.

When the announcement was made that she’d made it through to the grand final, she proudly held up an Australian flag, as her supporters cheered her on!

She’s now up against 25 other contestants from around the world, including: Bulgaria, Ukraine, Israel, Russia, Croatia, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, The Netherlands and United Kingdom. You’ll kill it Dami!

Dami fans took to social media to share their excitement, with one person tweeting: “So proud of Dami but we knew you were amazing and could do it, got teary with pride,” while another wrote: “Congrats Dami Im you are awesome and gorgeous! You’ll have my vote in the final on Saturday.”

Earlier this year, Dami was announced as the Australian contestant for this year’s contest, by 2014 Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst. Last year Guy Sebastian was the first Aussie act to be included in Eurovision, and he finished fifth overall.

At the InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards in Sydney last night, former X-Factor judge Dannii Minogue said she was fully backing once an X Factor Australia contestant Dami Im – as she prepares to represent Australia on Sunday night.

“She’ll just be amazing, she’s straight out of a competition really,” Dannii said. It’s all the pressure she’s used to and she’s just going to go out there and rock it. She’s just so adorable and natural and likeable.”

Go Dami, bring it home for the Aussies!
