  • Kate Miller-Heidke to represent Australia at Eurovision Song Contest 2019

Australia has chosen - our Eurovision 2019 representative is...

It is the first time the public has helped choose the musical act to perform at the contest.

Electric Fields took out second place with their song 2000 And Whatever, while Sheppard came in third place with On My Way.

"Well, it's a song about coming out of depression and it tries to capture that feeling of transcending a long period of feeling low", she told SBS.

"I find it a very empowering song to sing and listen to".

Miller-Heidke won the nationally televised competition to represent Australia at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, which will be held in May in Tel Aviv.

"I was so nervous beforehand but once I got up there I could feel the energy of the crowd".

Australia is a relatively recent entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest.

"It's an enormous honour and a responsibility - and I don't take it lightly".

They were picked over acts Anisa, girl group Maid, and 17-year-old singer and former X Factor hopeful Holly Tandy after each of the three specially written songs were sung in two different styles.

"It means true inclusivity and diversity; and it means breaking down of genres and anything goes".

But activists for the Palestinian-led global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement have been calling on musicians and broadcasters to refuse to participate in this year's song contest as part of a broader campaign against Israel's occupation of Palestine.

Paul Clarke, the creative director of Eurovision - Australia Decides, describedMiller-Heidke's victory as "a win for out-of-the-box brilliance, which Eurovision devours".

BBC producer Mel Balac said: "This has been such an exciting year for Eurovision: You Decide with new format changes that we hope have really made the competition and programme more geared to find the ideal song".

"It's a standout song with mesmerising staging".

Last year's United Kingdom entrant SuRie finished 24th out of 26 in the Eurovision song contest after a stage invader interrupted her performance by grabbing the mic and shouting slogans about the media. Electric Fields delivered a stellar performance, and came so close, but it was Kate's night.

"Argh! Thank you so much for voting for me!"

Queensland Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said Kate will be getting a proud send-off.

Ireland has won the most Eurovision finals, with seven wins.

Among the eight entries competing on Saturday, the TOP 3 were MARUV, Brunettes Shoot Blondes, and YUKO.

Jessica Mauboy performed at the event in 2014 as an interval act.
