Jessica Mauboy was selected via an internal selection in order to defend the Ausssie colours at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal.

Brace yourselves Europe, Australia is here to claim the trophy! Jessica will sing We got love in Lisbon.

We got love, the 2018 Australian entry was leaked on Youtube yesterday and has sent her fans and Eurovision aficionados across the globe into a frenzy. Both SBS and Sony Music Australia were prompt and acted quickly in order to remove the song from the platform.

Australia in Eurovision

The Aussies were invited to participate at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna as a one off occasion, but our neighbours down under embraced the contest with such enthusiasm they were invited back again in 2016, 2017 and we will see them yet again in 2018.

The Australian nation has won the hearts of Eurovision fans near and far, achieving 3 Top 10 placings in their short 3 year Eurovision history.

Australia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 with flying colours. Guy Sebastian had the honour of flying the Australian flag in Vienna with Tonight again, achieving a remarkable 5th place in the Grand Final.

In 2016, Australia was invited back to the Eurovision fiesta in Stockholm, the country nearly walked away with the coveted trophy when Dami Im won the jury vote but placed 2nd overall after the televoting results were disclosed.

In the aftermath of Dami Im’s extraordinary result the Aussies were yet again invited to join the Eurovision bandwagon in 2017. Australia brought multi talented Isaiah Firebrace to Kyiv and achieved an honorable 9th place in the Grand Final.

Australia is set to compete in the Second Semi-final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in  Lisbon on 1o May.

The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 8, 10 and 12 May at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal
