Didn't Australia already take part in that failed Asian version of Eurovision around 2011 or so though? I vaguely remember a white girl singing in English.

Take a look at this. ;)

I didn't realize they did it for multiple years! I watched the 2012 one(it was...pretty awful) and never heard about it again after.

They ought to make it into a contest. That would make it more fun. Strangely enough, the 2015 edition is going to be held in Turkey. I wonder if that has anything to do with Turkey's recent withdrawal from Eurovision.

It will be exciting to see which Australian performer will be willing to take the stage - and maybe after years of complaining about Eastern European bloc voting, we might have a new ally? If the song is penned by Sia, then I am gonna be incredibly excited.

If Australia wins, they will not be able to host the competition in Australia next year, but will have to co-host the show with a European city. Eurovision will never leave Europe, but allowing international friends and fans to participate within welcoming guidelines will only enhance and inject a new energy into the competition.

It'll be interesting to see how serious they take it. I assume they're going to be investing quite heavily in it (one of the reasons they've been allowed, no doubt) so I hope they go all out and get an act like Kylie to perform. :D :P

I think its nice for the 60th anniversary to have Australia perform, I just hope Australia performing doesn't overshadow the whole thing and the interest in them performing dies down a bit. As long as they give us 12 points and choose London if they win, I'm fine. :keke:

It will probably depend on their performance/act but Australia will be a shoo-in to win as everyone will vote for them just because:
1.) It will cause annoyance to music purists
2.) It will ensure they're in the competition for at least two years
3.) It's a way of stopping the block voting, and annoying some country you don't like
4.) Finally it adds to the sense of unpredictability of Eurovision

why is Australia invited? Mind you, The Eurovision isn't really about Europe is it, Azerbaibaibaijan or whatever its called, Israel, who get in because well, why not eh-more middle east but they get a shot. Its just a political party where you can come have fun. Its also based on who gets European broadcasting signal- if a country gets a certain amount of coverage they can count, so you never know, Saudi Arabia could be the next big thing!

UK will never win, people just don't like us so we get no votes, plus Engleburt Humpadink? Who the fuck thought that was a good idea?! (Also i know I probably spelt his name wrong, but auto-correct wants to change the first part to "Furtwangler": I wonder if that's how he thought up that name? It sounds funny....

Anyway, here is a few things which usually make a winner:

1) be totally different (like Lordi, the best winner imo for their entire presence, and just for being different)
2) be totally gay or gay-friendly (the beardy-lady wasn't even that good but gays watch so there you go)
3) be a little country thats just popped up (was it Serbia with molitva or something that won?)
4) Have friends or scared victims (Russia gets votes just to be appeased-keep the gas on guys!)
5) Show some tits (Poland did rather well with its shit song with young farm type worker women-thats for the eastern European straight man vote)
6) be a twink (remember gays love eurovision and so do young (often) drunk females- Norway's song wasn't even that good but there you go)
7) Dont be from the UK

I think France may do rather well this year, I know it may sound cynical, but the whole Paris thing will get a few sympathy/solidarity votes.

Also, if the UK leaves the EU, will they still be invited as part of the Big Five? I don't know if we would be as likely to give so much money to the contest if we weren't which means we would have to qualify rather than be automatically enrolled and how well do you think that would go.....

I actually seriously liked that song. Yes, it wasn't my favourite of that year. But it was good.
