Three days ago we've presented nine out of ten acts that had already been chosen for the Austrian national final for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The tenth act has now been chosen through a Facebook voting: It's AzRaH!

The following acts were still in the running to get a wildcard for the Austrian final, to be held on February 12th:

  • Laura Kamhuber - Stay Tonight
  • Ola Egbowon - Addicted
  • AzRaH - The One
  • Sara Koell - Closer To The Sun
  • David Siedl feat. Madelene & Mc Vio - Wah Wah Whine

Now the Facebook users have decided that AzRaH will get the honour of joining the Austrian final line-up.

Voting started at 9:00 CET yesterday and finished today at 9:00 am CET. The voting took place on the official Austrian Eurovision Facebook site, where you can also listen to the five songs:
