Singer-songwriter Montaigne will represent Australia at Eurovision with Don't Break Me after she won the Australia Decides national final.

She topped the jury vote with 54 points, and added 53 from the public televote to win with a total of 107, seven votes clear of former Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan, singing Proud.

The art-pop performer appeared on stage in a form of clown costume with a blue wig, and her performance of the song — about the breakdown of a relationship — was very physical, interacting with the cameras and featuring lots of dynamic movement with her backing dancers. Jack Vidgen's self-penned song I Am King I Am Queen, which references his internal struggles after his time on The Voice last year, came eighth with 34 votes.

The youngest entrant in the field at 20, Jordan-Ravi showed no nerves as he interacted with the crowd, high-fiving the front row — he finished 10th with 23 votes.
