New Year’s Eurovision Comes to Nelson Reserve 

Australia’s Got Talent Season 5 Winner, Jack Vidgen, will headline Gympie Regional Council’s New Year’s Eve celebrations in Nelson Reserve on 31 December 2019.

He will compete with big names like Casey Donovan, Vanessa Amorosi, and Mitch Tambo for the title of Eurovision Song Contestant. Vidgen is the first of the 10 artists to already released his song entry, I Am King I Am Queen.
