Orianthi’s the Aussie Guitarist Racing the US Charts with Danish Eurovision Entry

Born in 1985, Australian Orianthi Panagaris has already spiced up her resume. Not only has she cracked the US market, she is also the guitarist in Michael Jackson’s concert movie This Is It. Her debut single “According to You” peaked at No.6 in Australia and is currently sitting at No.20 on the Billboard Hot 100. To be fair, the track has reached No.4 on the Billbord Pop Songs chart.The track is included on the latest WelcheMusic compilation which can be found here.

As this wasn’t odd enough, the title track of her current hit album Believe is none other than Niels Brinck’s “Believe Again” – Denmark’s entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009. A track that was penned by Boyzone singer Ronan Keating.  Watch the original below:

Swedish song-writer Andreas Carlsson has also submitted songs to the album. “Bad News” was written by Carlsson with the help of Desmond Child and Orianthi herself.

Expect Orianthi to get her breakthrough in Europe as well.
