Australia in Eurovision
Australia was invited to compete at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, as a one off participation but the country embraced the competition with such enthusiasm that they have been invited to return every year since.
The Aussies achieved their best result in the contest in 2016 when Dami Im nearly walked away with the Grand Prix with her entry Sound of silence, placing 2nd in Stockholm.
Our neighbours down under have enjoyed much success in the competition having achieved four top 10 placings in their nine year Eurovision history.
In 2023 Voyager represented Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool with their entry ‘Promise‘.
