Selection format

It was in February 2015 EBU announced the big news about Australia taking part in Eurovision Song Contest 2015 as a special guest to celebrate 60 years of Eurovision. This came as a result after Australia has shown a great interest in the contest over several years. In March it was stated that Guy Sebastian was internally chosen to represent Australia, and his song was revealed a few weeks later.

Guy Sebastian

Guy Sebastian is a singer, songwriter and producer, and is one of Australia’s most popular musicians, with six singles and two albums that has went to the top of the charts. Back in 2003, Guy went ahead and won the very first edition of the Australian version of Idol, and has received several music awards ever since. He is currently a judge in the Australian The X Factor, along with working on some new music. We can go on and on about his successful career, but I think we can just end this presentation with the fact that Guy Sebastian definitely will be the biggest star competing in Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

Australia will compete in the final, on May 23rd, as they are a special guest entrant this year. Australia will also have the exclusive possibility to vote in both semifinals.
