Everyone was loving the novelty of it all, loads of people voted for them, and though they didn’t win, they did a pretty good job by bagging fifth spot.

“The feedback we got from viewers, fans, press and the broadcasters after Australia’s participation in Vienna was overwhelmingly positive,” said Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor about the news.

“We strongly believe the Eurovision Song Contest has the potential to evolve organically into a truly global event.

“Australia’s continued participation is an exciting step in that direction.”
