Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest

Australia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015, as a โ€œguest countryโ€ to celebrate the contestโ€™s 60th anniversary. Guy Sebastian was selected to represent the country with โ€œTonight Againโ€, which finished in 5th place with 196 points. This therefore makes them the most recent debutant to the contest.

Australia were again invited to take part in the contest in 2016, and have been every year since. This year, SBS and the EBU confirmed that Australiaโ€™s participation in the contest has been secured until 2023.

Thus far, Australia have never failed to make the final. So far, they have finished as runners-up in 2016, in 9th place in 2017 and 2019 and in 20th place in 2018. Interestingly, they are one of only two countries to maintain their 100% qualification record (along with Ukraine).

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
