The staging at the Australian national selection saw Kate in a large freestanding dress, with an acrobat behind her. The staging which was one of the most memorable on the night reflected the story behind her song “Zero Gravity”.
The lyrics talk to depression personified, as if it were an awful lover or terrible friend, and expresses the relief at finally getting them out of your life.
Zero Gravity is about leaving seriousness behind, something I feel resonates with the essence of the Eurovision Song Contest!
Kate Miller-Heidke won Eurovision – Australia Decides with the song “Zero Gravity”. She topped both the jury and public vote scoring a total of 135 points, 21 points ahead of second place Electric Fields.
