RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist and 2018 Celebrity Big Brother champion Courtney Act today premieres the music video for her brand new single Fight For Love, out now on iTunes and Spotify.
Courtney is bidding for this instantly memorable dance-pop smash to be Australia’s entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. She will compete on Australia’s national selection TV show ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’ on SBS on Saturday 9 February 2019. Yeah, we know, Australia isn’t in Europe. In fact, it’s about as far away as it could be while remaining on the same planet, but this piece of classic geographical revisionism just adds to the bonkersness of Eurovision.
Directed by Femme.TV, the high-impact, sultry music video from Courtney gives a taste into what can be expected from her live performance on ‘Australia Decides,’ featuring striking fast-paced choreography and a range of ultra-modern, high fashion looks.
Courtney Act said of Fight For Love: “A sweet 16 years after Australian Idol, I have the chance to show Australia how I have grown as an artist and performer and I am so excited! To compete to represent Oz in Eurovision is second only to being on that stage in Tel Aviv and singing my lungs out for my country. Fight For Love is a dancefloor banger all about coming together and fighting for the things we believe in. I think it’s so important to think about the basic human rights of others and to use our collective voices, minds and bodies to lift those people up and bring about change.”
One of the first artists to showcase the art of drag during season one of Australian Idol, Courtney showed the judges much more than her music ability. In 2014 she returned to television as one of the top three in season six of the Emmy Award-winning RuPaul’s Drag Raceand in 2018, she entered the UK Celebrity Big Brother house and won the competition. Courtney is currently the host of the first bisexual dating show The Bi Life airing on the E! channel worldwide. She also recently presented her own Christmas TV special, Courtney Act’s Christmas Extravaganza, airing on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 2018.
