BIGSOUND buzz act Jaguar Jonze has thrown her hat in the ring to represent Australia at next year's Eurovision.

"The selected 10 artists are all so talented and I’d be so happy for any one of us to represent Australia in Eurovision. I think it shows the diverse pool of creativity and talent in this nation and I’m honoured to be a part of it.
