Hieu, who's currently in Germany, said on Friday he was practicing with dancers to perform the song live on stage for the competition’s final round on March 3.

The music video itself will be uploaded on the competition's official website so people can vote for it.

If Hieu wins, he’ll be eligible to enter the international final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, the U.K., in May.

The other 7 songs competing are "Hold On" (Will Church), "Melodies Of Hope" (Patty Gurdy), "Misfit" (Lonely Spring), "Once Upon A Dream" (Anica Russo), "Blood And Glitter" (Lord Of The Lost), "Alle Frauen in mir sind müde" (Frida Gold) and "Concrete Heart" (René Miller).

Hieu submitted his music video for the contest a month prior, saying that the Eurovision is a "dream stage" for him.

Hieu wrote "Dare To Be Different" as a nu-disco song. The music video contains elements of Vietnamese culture in both its visual and musical aspects.
