Australia – Our Antipodean friends have decided to use the national section programme Eurovision – Australia Decides again after last year’s success of Kate Miller-Heidke.
National broadcaster SBS has partnered with Blink TV and the show will take place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February. Australian viewers will be able to vote for who they want to represent them in The Netherlands in May 2020. The show will be hosted by comedian Joel Creasey and music expert Myf Warhurst. Ten acts will fight it out.
Songwriters across Australia can submit an original composition as part of the selection process via sbs.com.au/Eurovision now. The song portal is open for submissions until 30th September 2019.
If you’re down under and want to attend the shows, tickets for the Opening Night Show, Matinee Show and Live TV Final are now on sale here.
