Austria’s Zoë, who will represent her country at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm with the entry Loin d’ici, will perform at the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards in Vienna on Sunday 3 April.

The Austrian equivalent of the Grammy Awards, the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards celebrates outstanding achievements in the Austrian music industry. Founded in 2000, awards can be awarded to any musician with Austrian citizenship or any musician who has established their career in Austria.

Zoë is also nominated as the Female Artist of the Year, alongside Conchita Wurst, who with Rise like a phoenix famously triumphed for Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest of 2014. Check out the official website where you can find all the contest information.

Sarah Connor, Gregor Meyle and Parov Stelar have also been confirmed to perform at the event.

Nineteen-year-old Zoë won the Final of Wer singt für Österreich, on Friday 12 February, charming voters across the land with her French language entry Loin d’ici. Following that victory Zoë secured the right to represent Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, which takes place at Stockholm’s Globen Arena on 10, 12 and 14 May.
