SBS: Australia will be present at Eurovision 2015
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – We at oikotimes.com are happy to see the SBS announcement on Eurovision 2015 as the broadcaster of Australia confirm participation in the most popular international music event.
SBS will be once again present in Eurovision 2015 which anyway mark its 60th anniversary and – between us – it’s a big shame countries like Turkey remain stubborn and don’t return to the contest in this milestone moment of the contest.
In 2014 Australia entered literally the contest as Jessica Mauboy performed in the interval act of the final bringing us a flavour of Aussie-ness in the contest. We do hope they manage to participate in the competition as well one day soon.
Eurovision has become one of the most popular television events in Australia. Next year is the 60th anniversary of Eurovision and with the official theme ‘Building Bridges’ already announced by host country Austria, SBS can reveal we have our Eurovision engineers Julia Zemiro and Sam Pang already working on how we can build a bridge to Vienna and join the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015.
