Who will represent Australia at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest? Australian broadcaster SBS has announced that their national selection 'Eurovision – Australia Decides' - the show that brought us Kate Miller-Heidke in 2019 - will return in February 2020 for a second season.
SBS is once again partnering up with production company Blink TV to host Eurovision – Australia Decides which will be presented at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 February. The live show will give Australians the chance to vote for the artist and song to represent their country at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in the Netherlands.
Hosted by comedian Joel Creasey and music expert Myf Warhurst, the show will showcase Australian talent and bring the nation closer to the Eurovision action. Audiences will be encouraged to vote for their favourite acts, and the winner will be revealed during the live TV broadcast on Saturday 8 February.
SBS is calling on songwriters across Australia to submit an original composition as part of the selection process via sbs.com.au/Eurovision. The song portal is open for submissions until 30 September 2019. Songs will be shortlisted and announced later this year, along with the ten Australian artists set to compete for their shot to represent Australia on the Eurovision stage.
Tickets for the Opening Night Show, Matinee Show and Live TV Final are now on sale.
