About Nathan Trent

Nathanaele Koll, known professionally as Nathan Trent, will represent Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.

On 19 December 2016, the Austrian national broadcaster ORF announced Trent as their representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. His song has been released in February 2017. He was also on the shortlist for Unser Song 2017, the German national final. He was eliminated instead, as the EBU rules do not allow one artist to represent more than one countries.

Austria is set to compete in the first half of the second semi-final on 11 May in Kyiv, hoping for a place to this year’s final. The 62nd Eurovision Song Contest is going to take place on 9, 11 and 13 May at the IEC in Kyiv, Ukraine.
