ON THE SPOT: LIVE FROM SETÚBAL
PORTUGAL – During the first ever coverage of Eurovision Live Concert in Setúbal, Portugal our local expert Ricard Duarte had the chance to meet and greet with Nathan Trent the Austrian representative in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
Born in Innsbruck, Austria, to an Austrian father and an Italian mother, on 18 June 2016, Trent released his debut single “Like It Is”. On 19 December 2016, Trent was announced as the Austrian representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
His song, “Running on Air”, was released on 28 February 2017. At the time of his selection as the Austrian entrant, Trent was one of the 33 artists that had been shortlisted in Unser Song 2017, the contest to select the German entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
He was automatically eliminated, as a performer can not represent more than one country in the same year by European Broadcasting Union regulations. He ultimately finished 16th in the contest, with 93 points.
