Österreich rockt den Song Contest will be the title of this year's Austrian national final, and today you can already get a glimpse if Austria might indeed manage to rock the stage in Baku: you can listen to the songs of the competing acts on the website of the public radio channel Ö3.
This is the full line-up of the Austrian national final:
- James Cottriall - Stand Up
- !DelaDap - Crazy Swing
- Krautschädl - Einsturzgefohr

- Papermoon - Vater, Father, Mon Père

Nine of the ten acts had already been announced earlier. Mary Broadcast Band (pictured) was the last act to be confirmed yesterday, receiving a wild-card for the national final from a jury within the public radio channel Ö3.
The band Blockstars is still in the process of being formed as a part of a project conducted by the German hip-hopper Sido. The band members and their song for the national final will be known only after the last show of Blockstars - Sido macht Band, to be broadcast on February 2nd at 21:55 CET on ORF eins.
