Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest
Although many Australians have performed on the Eurovision stage, it wasn’t until 2015 the nation took part ‘as a guest’. Guy Sebastian flew the flag with the uptempo ‘Tonight Again’, coming 5th. Due to the resounding success and positive response, Australia have competed in the contest since. Around this time last year, the EBU guaranteed Australia’s ability to participate until 2023. To date, Dami Im currently holds the crown for ‘best Australian result’ – almost winning the contest with ‘Sound of Silence’.
In 2019, Australia once again qualified to the final, maintaining their 100% qualification record. Kate Miller-Heidke soared, levitated and sang her way to the top-end of the odds as ‘Zero Gravity’ captured the imagination of the audience. The song went on to finish 9th in the Grand Final in Tel Aviv with 284 points.
