AUSTRALIA – Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke wants London to host 2020 Eurovision Song Contest if she wins. Instead of being held Down Under next year, Eurovision rules say that Australia must nominate a European co-host should they win the contest.
And although it was previously thought that Germany would be Australia’s number one choice, the UK now has a decent chance of hosting Eurovision if Australia triumph.
At least, that’s according to Aussie entry Kate Miller-Heidke who’ll perform song Zero Gravity at the Eurovision grand final.
“At the moment it’s up in the air between Paris, London and Berlin,” she told RadioTimes.com when asked where the contest will be held should Australia win. “However, it’s a decision that’s out of my hands. But London would get my vote – I lived there for two years previously.”
However, despite Miller-Heidke modestly adding she’ll need “a lot of luck” to win, Australia are now tipped as one of the favourites to top the table in Tel Aviv.
Not only did Zero Gravity’s operatic club beats blow audiences away at the semi-final, but its out-of-this-world staging had viewers declaring Australia is the country to beat.
In an interview with OIKOTIMES.com this week Kate only suggested Paris as her personal wish to host Eurovision 2020 in case Australia wins. After al she became the 2nd host favourite win with 12% chances to the trophy.
