The announcement that Australia will compete in Eurovision 2015 has divided Eurofans around the world. From shock-horror to pure joy, their reactions aren’t consistent…but they are very animated. Leaving international reactions aside, what are the people Down Under thinking about the EBU’s decision?
It’s easy enough to find out. For the past two days, the announcement has made headlines on every Australian broadcasters’ news bulletins and morning shows. They’re throwing out names of potential artists — our readers want Sia or Dami Im — and are approaching their bid with a hearty mix of humour and optimism. It’s great to see the Australian media promoting ESC so heavily — to Eurofans and non-Eurofans alike. See, they’re already bringing the sunshine!
