TV Tonight has revealed the jury panel of Australia’s national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2022, Eurovision – Australia Decides 2022.
The jury consists of Alexandra Rotan from Norway’s Eurovision 2019 representative KEiiNO, who will also perform during the show, Darren Hayes of the group Savage Garden, Milly Petriella from APRA-AMCOS, Emily Griggs SBS Head of Food and Entertainment and Creative Director and producer Paul Clarke.
Paul Clarke tells TV Tonight that this year the votes will be revealed in a model that resembles the points announced at Eurovision Song Contest.
We’re going to rank the audience votes for the first time, which is both to be fairer, but also more dramatic. So the most points you can get is the same amount that you can get from the jury. An act might get 60 points from the jury (12×5) so we’re going to have the same with our audience vote. The highest audience vote will be 60.Paul Clarke on Australia Decides voting
