We have confirmation y’all! Earlier today, CEO of SBS Australia Michael Ebeid sat down with Australian LGBT radio station Joy 94.9FM and has confirmed that we will hear the artist and song for Australia this coming Thursday March 5 at 9am AEST (that is at 10pm March 4 if you are in the UK, 11pm if you are on CET, so on and so forth).
Right now it is unclear if the song and artist will be presented on the SBS television station – which would involve an interruption to the broadcast of the French news (tres désolé), or if it will be broadcast over their national radio station, but y’all need to mark this historic date in your calendar because it’s going to be huge!
Michael Ebeid also confirmed that SBS initially wanted to televise a national final for the ticket, however time constraints prevented them from doing so. He also confirmed that most names being circulated around the media are all “pretty right” and cited big names like Kylie Minogue, Tina Arena and Guy Sebastian with further “great talent that (SBS) get to choose from.”
We’ve already listed a huge wealth of talent here at wiwibloggs who we want to see represent the country. Mr Ebeid’s comments are going to be sending the rumour mill in to overdrive no doubt too. Who do you want to see being presented on March 5th? Let us know in the comments below.
This will complete a huge week for song reveals. After Ireland yesterday and Hungary, Moldova, Finland, Slovenia, Spain, Greece, Portugal and the United Kingdom all set to reveal their songs in the coming week!
