Australia is one of the few countries outside of Europe that broadcasts the Eurovision Song Contest on television every year. They did it again this year and saw 19-year-old Lena from Germany win with her song “Satellite”.

The release date of Lena’s album “My cassette player” will be released June 18th!
UPDATE: She also reached the Top 100 on the itunes charts in New Zealand (even tough the show was not broadcast there)
