The Gold Coast just landed another epic event! Eurovision will be here in 2019 for the first national selection show, in which the public will vote for Australia’s entry in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.
We beat Sydney and Melbourne to the post and it all happens on February 9 when 'Australia Decides.' SBS and Blink TV will shortlist songs and artists, and select a jury who will choose Australia's Eurovision act with the voting public. It's all going down at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre!
Previous Eurovision performers include Guy Sebastian, Dami Im and Jessica Mauboy. Oh, and don't forget ABBA! Blink TV director Paul Clarke highlighted that this would be the first time Australians will see a live Eurovision show in an Aussie venue.
