Dami Im has become a household name since winning The X Factor in 2013 but 2016 looks to be her biggest year yet. 

The 27-year-old is set to perform in Eurovision on behalf of Australia with her song ‘Sound of Silence’. 

But it’s not just new music that she’s recording. 

Im is a massive fan of The Carpenters and their music and recently recorded an album of covers with some of their most iconic songs. 

We sat Dami down in studio to chat about her first performing gig, Eurovision and The Carpenters.

Of course we couldn’t let her get away without a performance. 


Listen to her haunting rendition of “Close To You’.

Laurel was especially excited to join in at the end of the song! 

If you haven’t heard Dami Im’s ‘Sound of Silence’ ahead of Eurovision, take a listen below. 

We can’t wait to see how she crafts her performance.
