Reports today in the Austrian media say that the Austrian broadcaster are turning to an internal selection for 2014. This year Austria choose their Eurovision entrant Natalia Kelly through a live national selection. It is interesting to note that the five acts taking part in the live selection said that the process was the only Music show on ORF.
Austria on their return in 2011 used an open selection and qualified for the final with Nadine Beiler and finishing 18th with 64 points. Since then Austria has failed to qualify for the final coming last in 2012 and 14th this year.
If ORF returned to an internal selection it would be the first internal selection since 1999.
