The host country of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is getting ready for Stockholm: The Austrian national final will take place on February 12th, with ten acts participating. Nine will be chosen by an expert commission, while the public will give a wildcard to a tenth candidate on Facebook.

Eurovision Song Contest – Wer singt für Österreich? - that will be the title of the Austrian national final for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, and the selection procedure already started today.
On the official Austrian Eurovision Song Contest Facebook page, you can follow the selection live, and starting from mid-December, you will also be able to cast your vote in the online wildcard selection by "liking" your favorite act. Acts wishing to participate in the wildcard selection can submit their entries until December 11th.
The remaining nine acts will be chosen by radio presenter and musician Eberhard Forcher, who is also the founder of the well-known Youtube Channel AUSTROZONE, together with the ORF Eurovision Song Contest team.
In January, we shall know the full line-up of the Austrian national final, which will be broadcast live on ORF One on February 12th.
