Billboard reported that the 20th anniversary of the Commonwealth Games will be taking place in Glasgow, Scotland this August. These games, which used to be called the British Empire Games, is an international sporting event which is very similar to the Olympics. The games are held every four years.
The games will air on July 23-August 3, and organizers already anticipate 1 billion TV viewers.
In a recent interview, Mauboy was asked about her Eurovision performance during the May 8 semi-final, Daily Telegraph reported. She said that knowing that so many people were turned in around the world she had to take a moment to collect herself. "It was absolutely incredible. We had such an incredible time," said Mauboy.
Mauboy also elaborated on her plans to continue playing music in the U.K. "There’s plans for the U.K. I see a big picture there and a whole other level and story there. Europe is one place I know that my music is perfect for. I feel my music is so connected in Europe, I want to go over there and tour and have my music known there. And I’ll fight for that to happen.”
