Ella Hooper will be the first to take to Eurovision grand final stage in Australia, followed by fan-favourite Electric Fields. We cycle through Mark Vincent, Aydan, Courtney Act, Leea Nanos, Sheppard, Alfie Arcuri, and Kate Miller-Heidke before wrapping it all up with Tania Doko.
Like it or not, running order is an important part of a national final. Viewership is always higher towards the end of a broadcast and the top slots are often considered a ‘death kiss’ for Eurovision hopefuls. However, with voting already open and continuing throughout the broadcast, these things may not end up having a particularly large impact.
Eurovision – Australia Decides starts at 10:30 PM (NZDT) on Saturday, 9 February and will be broadcast live on Facebook and Twitter.
