RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist and 2018 UK Celebrity Big Brother champion Courtney Act released her brand new single Fight For Love on iTunes and Spotify last month.
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.
“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,” said Courtney. “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 dance floor 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 Race and 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.
Courtney’s new single Fight For Love is available to purchase now on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
