Earlier today, host broadcaster ORF revealed the idea behind the postcards that will be shown before each song at this year’s contest. Like the past two years, they will feature the artists themselves.

However, unlike previous years, the artists will be filmed both in their home country and in Austria, with all nine Austrian provinces being used for filming.

Each of the clips will begin with the artists receiving a package and an invitation to Austria, and continue with the contestants making their way to Vienna through one of Austria’s provinces, where they will have a task to fulfil. These tasks could mean anything, and will apparently be varied in nature but will no doubt be used to show off what Austria has to offer.

Filming takes place between now and the end of April, but one postcard that has already been completed is San Marino’s, starring Michele and Anita at the Vienna Opera Ball.

Content Manager: In the real world I work in PR and I love pizza, dogs and gin. When it comes to Eurovision I can be quite a cynical fan at times, but I can always be won over by a killer key-change.
