TEYA & SALENA Eurovision 2023 AustriaTEYA & SALENA Eurovision 2023 Austria

Austrian broadcaster ORF announced the Austrian representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 this morning during the Ö3 Wecker show on Hitradio Ö3: It’s Teya & Salena. Their song will be released on 8 March, International Women’s Day.

Teya & Salena were internally selected from 15 acts that were invited to castings by radio producer Eberhard Forcher and producer Lukas Hillebrand. Austrian and international experts, as well as Eurovision fan club members from several countries, made the decision to send Teya & Salena to the Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

They are the first female duo to compete for Austria at the Contest. Twenty-two year old Viennese TEYA and twenty-four year old SALENA from Styria met each other two years ago, when they participated in the ORF casting show Starmania 21. The musicians have been friends ever since the show, sharing the same childhood dream of performing on stage in the world’s greatest music competition.

The fact that now she’s finally going to Eurovision is the fulfillment of a big dream for Teya:

– I wanted to go to the Eurovision Song Contest as a child, because it has always meant to me that even big dreams can come true, regardless of who you are and where you come from. I can’t wait for the first step on stage, says Teya.

Salena deliberately pursued her goal of winning Eurovision:

– I saw Conchita on stage at the time and told my parents that I wanted exactly that – a giant stage and people who feel music as much as I do. From this point on, I have worked even more on myself and my singing.
