The running order for Australia’s Eurovision selection show has been determined.
Australian broadcaster SBS has revealed that iOTA will open the show on Saturday evening, and Didirri will close. Eurovision – Australia Decides is set to take place on February 8th, and will feature special guest performances from Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw, as well as Kate Miller-Heidke and Dami Im, who represented Australia at the 2019 and 2016 contests respectively.
The running order is as follows:
- Jaguar Jonze
- Jack Vidgen
- Vanessa Amorosi
- Diana Rouvas
- Mitch Tambo
- Casey Donovan
This will be Australia’s 6th entry at the Eurovision Song Contest and second time that Australia have opted for a national selection. Last year, Kate Miller-Heidke was the first winner of the competition with her song “Zero Gravity” eventually finishing 9th in Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Australia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 as part of celebrations marking 60 years of the Eurovision Song Contest. The broadcaster SBS has broadcast Eurovision in Australia since 1983. Australia’s best result to date came in 2016 Australia when Dami Im, with the song “Sound of Silence,” finished in 2nd place in the final scoring 511 points, just 23 points away from victory.
