UPDATE: Didirri placed fourth in the Eurovision: Australia Decides contest.
The young singer-songwriter gave an emotive performance which was broadcaster around the country on Saturday night and was up against 10 others in the competition.
His performance included a montage of scenery near Johanna where Didirri recorded the song and shot his film clip.
The eventual winner, Montaigne, will now head to Rotterdam in May to compete in the worldwide song contest.
Didirri was grateful for the opportunity to perform.
"It's not often you get to have such a huge production behind one performance so I just wanna take a sec to thank everyone who made this happen, you know how much you did/do for me and I'm eternally grateful," he wrote on his Instagram page.
"I am now getting ready to do the absolute opposite tour; a run of intimate shows in April."
Didirri will perform at the Lighthouse Theatre, Warrnambool on April 24 with tickets selling fast.
EARLIER: Fresh off the release of Raw Stuff and announcing a complimenting tour, which includes his home town, Warrnambool alternative artist Didirri Peters is gearing up for the Eurovision stage.
This weekend Didirri will vie for a place to represent Australia in Rotterdam for the 2020 worldwide song contest by singing his latest song.
"Raw Stuff is about two relationships and how problems in one relationship can paralyse your conversations in another," the singer-songwriter said.
"I found myself unable to open up to a dear person my life. On the phone for small talk and nothing more. Unable to talk about the big stuff. The song is my view on that feeling.
"I wanted it to feel like an early Tom Waits 'West Side Story' feeling; just piano strings and vocal all swelling to a crescendo towards the end."
Didirri has built a following for creating music for "lovers and over-thinkers" and Raw Stuff taps into both those categories.
The track opens with simple piano chords with the wordsmith's age-old vocals that have a way of finding a meeting point between vulnerable and strong. Verses are complete, yet end midway through sentences leaving the listener wanting more.
With multitudes of interpretations from his lyrics, the beauty of Didirri's work is that it always feels like it belongs to the listener.
The organic track was written and recorded in Johanna on the Great Ocean Road after Didirri's career prevented him from being home.
"For the first time in my life, I was skipping Christmas," he said.
"I was feeling very, very guilty about it. My passion for creative work had taken over too much of my life, so there I was, on the other side of the planet.
"Though I was pursuing my creative goals, I was far from my family and friends. I couldn't explain the mixed bag of emotions weighing me down so I gave up on the song quickly.
"Two years later I'm in the studio when the phone rings and it's the person I had felt cut off from that year I skipped Christmas. They said they had felt the same, and had found it hard to open up as well and that they were skipping Christmas this year.
"I instantly remembered the half-written song I never finished, and suddenly it all made sense; part two.
"Raw Stuff instantly falls into two parts. The first half is my side of miscommunication, and the second my reaction to hearing they felt the same."
Didirri will head to the United States and Canada before returning to our shores to tour Raw Stuff.
In among his shows at some of Australia's biggest stages including The Howler in Melbourne and Lansdowne Hotel in Sydney, Didirri has found the time to return home.
"It's been a dream of mine to play at the Lighthouse since I was very small," he said.
"I really want to do something special for that show. I haven't decided yet but I've envisioned telling my own story there ever since the days of holiday acting.
"It will be an experience that's for sure.
"I hope people get a moment of quiet, connection and a big rush of love from the show; that's the goal at least, we all want to connect."
This year is shaping up to be another massive year for Didirri who's been spending a lot of hours hard at work.
"I have been in the studio in Johanna and I'm excited to show you what I have been making," he said.
"I'm also really overwhelmed but happy to be back on the road performing new songs."
You will have the opportunity to vote for Didirri's Raw Stuff to be the country's selection for the song contest in May by heading to the SBS website throughout Saturday and texting his number 10 to 1999 2222 when voting opens.
