  • Australia Decides will be hosted by Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst

Eurovision 2019 marks Australia's fifth appearance at the music competition, with Jessica Mauboy representing the country in this year's contest final in Lisbon.

Meanwhile, Australia's head of delegation for Eurovision, Paul Clarke, expressed the benefits of the new strategy.

There are no restrictions on the number of songs composers and songwriters, both published and unpublished, can submit.

But now there's going to be a contest to choose the artist and song called Eurovision: Australia Decides, will be decided by a jury and members of the public, so we can now vote for our favourite performer.


Irrespective of this, the cost of preparing the Bulgarian contestant, creating and producing a song, a stage performance, production of a television video and inclusion in the programme of the contest significantly outweighed the reasonable expenditure that the public broadcaster could afford, the statement said.
