Austria – Earlier this week, ORF, the Austrian Broadcaster announced the 9 automatic finalists of their National Final which will be taking place February 12th. They also revealed 5 wildcard hopefuls on their Facebook page where people could vote for their favourites and AzRaH is triumphant
It has not been without contraversy however as originally she was 3rd in the ranking as shown below
Sara Koell “Closer To The Sun” 8069
Laura Kamhuber “Stay Tonight” 7280
AzRaH “The One” 7187
David Siedl feat. Madelene & MC Vio “Wah Wah Whine” 1921
Ola Egbowon “Addicted” 1192
Winner Sara Koell dropped out of the running having found out foreign votes from Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Brazil had voted for two of her competitors. This provoked ORF to validate the votes again and AzRaH was declared the proper winner.
This means we now know one of the songs up for contention in representing Austria in Stockholm and you can hear this below:
AzRaH joins the other 9 finalists whose songs are still to be revealed:
Farina Miss & Céline Roscheck
