Austria Eurovision

Cesár Sampson will represent Austria in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. As in 2017, broadcaster ORF opted for an internal selection.

Cesar Sampson , elected last December 5 by the Austrian public television, ORF, as the standard-bearer of the Central European country, will perform 'Nobody but You' on the stage of the Altice Arena of the Portuguese capital, a song composed of the renowned Boris Milanov, Eman Faiz and Sebastian Arman, authors of many other songs that have gone through the contest (in this sense we refer to "If love was a crime" of 2016 and "Beautiful mess" of 2017).

The artist was born in Linz 34 years ago and he is not a stranger in the Austrian music scene, because at only 17 years of age he started touring around the planet as a vocalist of the most recognized alternative music bands in Austria such as Kruder & Dorfmeister, Sofa Surfers and Louie Austen. Later, he worked as a composer, lyricist and producer in several international projects, until the great opportunity of representing his country in Eurovision came.

This will be the third time Cesar will step on Eurovision stage. The first time was in 2016, when he accompanied Poli Genova with the choruses of his song 'If Love Was a Crime' , and also in 2017 he did the same with Kristian Kostov and 'Beautiful Mess' , second place in the last edition of the contest, held in Kiev. Moreover, in 2017, he also took part in the managing teams of the productions of Serbia and Macedonia.

"Nobody but you" marks, in essence, the real debut album of  Cesár Sampson as a soloist, after having also had a career as a model (a trait, this, which seems to be common to many artists of the Eurovisual edition that will take place at Lisbon from 8 to 12 May). " “Nobody but you” , on the one hand, includes my soul and my" story ", and on the other, the listeners will find themselves in it as well" - says Cesár about the song.

Interviewed by the team of eurovision.tv, Sampson said that around twenty years, wanting to find a way that would make him more than a musician, he found himself working with people with disabilities, and more generally as a physiotherapist, before return to having to do with music.

He says about the ESC: "The song contest offers a unique presentation space. Unique not because of its size, but because there is nothing comparable as a format. Here simply counts the complete work, which is composed of different puzzle pieces. The ESC does not reduce music making to a talent competition, but invites promising newcomers, seasoned underdogs, and national stars alike to show who they are. "

Cesár Sampson will have the task to bring Austria to the fifth consecutive final, as well as to improve the 16th place of Nathan Trent with "Running on air". Sampson's run to keep up with Conchita Wurst , Makemakes , Zoe and Trent will start on May 8, during the first semifinal , where he will sing in the second half.
