Kate Miller-Heidke Set To Rep Australia At Eurovision

Kate Miller-Heidke Set To Rep Australia At Eurovision”

The expert jury consisted of a Ukrainian singer and songwriter Jamala, the victor of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 for Ukraine; Andriy Danylko, a comedian and also singer, who represented Ukraine in 2007 as a drag artist "Verka Serduchka"; and Yevhen Filatov (The Maneken), a Ukrainian singer and producer, creator of Onuka band. That tally - which was amassed during Australia's first ever public vote on potential Eurovision contenders - combined with a score of 48 from an entertainment industry jury to land her the historic win.

The exuberant crowd cheered the singer with fans also feeling equally uplifted at the end of the performance. "We are delighted for Michael and are proud to take Bigger Than Us to the Eurovision Song Contest final in May".

Miller-Heidke said she was "totally overwhelmed" by the result.

"It means true inclusivity and diversity; and it means breaking down of genres and anything goes".

It will be the 64th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.

"What an incredible performance. My guess: top five in Europe", one fan said, delivering his verdict.

Eurovision - Australia Decides creative director Paul Clarke said "Eurovision will love" Miller-Heidke.

"It's a standout song with mesmerising staging". Electric Fields delivered a stellar performance, and came so close, but it was Kate's night.

Rice, who was voted into the finals of You Decide by judges Rylan Clark-Neal, Mollie King and Martin Humes, will automatically be put through to the finals of Eurovision as the United Kingdom are part of the big five - meaning that they are one of few countries that don't have to compete in the semi-finals. "The road to Eurovision 2019 has begun!"

"Kate will be a wonderful ambassador for Australia and Queensland at Eurovision - showcasing our local talent to a global audience of around 200 million people".

Australia first competed in Eurovision in 2015, and until now its entrant had been decided by jury.

Kate Miller-Heidke celebrates winning the 2019 Eurovision - Australia Decides final.

The 21-year-old singer from Hartlepool, who also won All Together Now in 2014, was crowned the victor of Eurovision: You Decide and will be singing the track Bigger Than Us at the annual TV song competition. "The Queensland Government supported the event through Tourism and Events Queensland and we wish Kate the performance of a lifetime in Tel Aviv".
