Two Australians will be competing in this year's Eurovision Song Contest after NSW-born Anja Nissen beat nine other finalists for the right to represent Denmark.

After narrowly finishing second last year in Denmark's Eurovision selection competition - the Danish Melodi Grand Prix - Nissen triumphed on Saturday in the city of Herning with her song Where I Am.

Nissen, 21, brought up on her Danish parents' farm west of Sydney, won The Voice on Australian TV in 2014 when she was coached by Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am.

In May in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, Nissen will be vying against the yet-to-be-announced Australian entrant and others in the Eurovision contest.

Last May in Stockholm, Australian singer Dami Im came second overall and won the jury vote with her song Sound of Silence, paving the way for Australia to be represented again this year.
