Since the EBU and Australian broadcaster SBS announced that Australia will compete as a guest in the Grand Final this year, the team at wiwibloggs has been gagging on the eleganza of potential artists for Australia. On February 11, we launched a poll asking you guys to let us know your favourites. After counting nearly 6,000 votes, we are pleased to announce that the winner is pint-sized X-Factor Australia 2014 winner, Marlisa Punzalan. Unfortunately, Marlisa is too young to compete at Eurovision (she doesn’t turn 16 until October 2015), so let’s take a look at the full results!

POLL RESULTS: AUSTRALIA 2015 TOP TEN

1. Marlisa Punzalan 2,186 (45.22%)

Marlisa Punzalan, more commonly known as Marlisa, is the most recent winner of The X Factor Australia. With Filipino heritage, she’s another Australian star on the rise who happens to be of Asian descent. Fifteen-year-olds are not allowed to enter Eurovision though. Sad face.

2. Dami Im 826 (17.09%)

Dami Im, a South Korean-born Australian singer, won the fifth series of Australian X Factor. She signed a record deal with Sony Music Australia and became a national superstar. Dami also went on to represent Australia at the ABU TV Song Festival 2014 with the song ‘Living Dangerously’. She ain’t no stranger to some international competition, y’all.

3. Sia 354 (7.32%)

Sia is arguably Australia’s most famous singer-songwriter right now. Sia has written songs for the likes of Rihanna, Kesha, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Celine Dion. When Sia released ‘Chandelier‘  it was OVER. The song was an immediate success, with assistance from Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler. Sia then followed up with another smash ‘Elastic Heart‘.

4. Kylie Minogue 184 (3.81%)

An early fan favourite to represent Australia is Miss Kylie Minogue. A massive star in the UK and USA, as well as her native Australia, we are confident that Kylie would SLAY in Vienna! There is even an online petition to get her on the Eurovision stage! She has also conveniently announced she will not return as a coach on The Voice Australia and released a track in February with Giorgio Moroder, called ‘Right Here, Right Now’. But sorry guys: She has already said she doesn’t want to do Eurovision.

5. Samantha Jade 124 (2.57%)

Samantha Jade was dropped from her original record label, and then looked to Australian talent show The X Factor as her last option. She took out the whole competition in 2012, and proceeded to become Australia’s sweetheart with her debut single ‘What You’ve Done To Me‘ and followed it up with hit songs ‘Firestarter‘, ‘Soldier‘, ‘UP!‘ and ‘Sweet Talk’.

6. Iggy Azalea 111 (2.3%)

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea moved to the United States at 16 to try and make it big. Eight years on, she has made that dream a reality. She has reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and has collaborated with the likes of Ariana GrandeJennifer Lopez and Rita Ora. I.G.G.Y has also been nominated for Grammy’s, VMA’s, Teen Choice Awards and American Music Awards. She so fancy.

7. The Veronicas 106 (2.19%)

The Veronicas are a set of twins from Brisbane. Their actual names are Lisa and Jess Origliasso. Their debut album “The Secret Life of…” had success in Australia and throughout Europe and the US. All 12 singles they have released have reached the Top 50 in Australia. Their most recent singles, ‘You Ruin Me‘ and ‘If You Love Someone’ have reached the Top 5 in Australia.

8. Jessica Mauboy 94 (1.94%)

Does Jessica Mauboy need an introduction? Really? After finishing as runner-up on Australian Idol in 2006, Jess has had a huge amount of success in Australia with both her music, and her acting in the hit film ‘The Sapphires‘. She even earned an interview on Ellen for her role in that film. She then went on to represent Australia in Eurovision 2014 in Copenhagen as the interval act in the second semi final. Could she go on to compete for real?

9. Five Seconds of Summer 77 (1.59%)

One of Australia’s most popular artists right now, 5 Seconds of Summer, or more affectionately known as 5SOS, have had charting success in Australia, the US and most of western Europe. The boys from Sydney have had more than 300 million views and over 2.2 million subscribers on YouTube.

10. Delta Goodrem 75 (1.55%)

Delta Goodrem started out as the girl next door on ‘Neighbours’ back in 2002, but has transformed into a Diva Down Under with her powerhouse vocals and flawless piano skills. Delta is one of Australia’s best-known vocalists and has been a coach on the Australian versions of The Voice and The Voice Kids.

Who says Marlisa is a clone of Dami Im. Are you kidding. She is better than all the X factor winner. She won by a small margin. So what…….You can be elected President in the U.S. by just one vote and anywhere in the world.

Nobody predicted Marlisa to win X Factor Au 2014. At 15 years old is some achievement. Her Vocals is Unique and Pure. She is an International Superstar.
Australia you need this Artist to represent your country.

MarlisAngelsKris,
People were questioning the legitimacy of 1) Marlissa being of Eurovision Talent & 2) How the votes were attained within 3-5 hrs time period…..Firstly having worked in the Music Industry for over a decade, I feel Marlissa’s voice is not developed nor does she have the technical & dynamic ability yet to place her with other Artists. We know she has a large following in the Fillipines & thats great support, however for an Artist to succeed in this brutal Industry, they need quality vocals & from what I have seen & heard she’s not at that level yet.

@Donna I am Australian and I know a lot of people who watch Eurovision here, so I don’t think that it’s fair to say no one watches it.

Third D3gree or Kelebek would be perfect for me. They are not so famous. They were on X Factor in the same season as Dami Im and they finished 4th. Kelebek left the group few months later.

Victor, you make some valid points. I also didn’t watch Xfactor after seeing the judges give standing ovations to nearly every act. Nothing wrong in having less Talent & would of still watched had the show not try & make out as though every performance was special. Honesty is the best form of reality & we may never get another Dami again, but to try & brainwash or trick the public is just totally wrong, they think the public are deaf or just plain stupid?

She’s not even veteran status yet. No way SBS will choose her until she’s made a name for herself in her 20s like Mauboy is now.

Blame Bloody Xfactor for her inflated name….Xfactor tried to deceive the Australian public by trying to have the viewers think they had another Dami clone. Dami’s success & facial Asian appearance to they’re way of thinking was a sure way to continue the success from 2013. I didn’t want to have anything to do with that Bullshit & joined the 1.3 Million other viewers who switched they’re T.V’s off on Sunday night at 7.30pm. Just because your Asian in appearance does not give you a ticket to Win Xfactor. Dami is in a league & class of her own &… Read more »

No I’m sorry but no one outside of Australia knows who she is and no one in Australia above the age of 12 would vote for her on here of all places.
Even when she was on X factor she was pushed by the producers to be the favorite. Everyone knew and no one could do anything about it. So therefore no, I don’t believe she was top of the poll.

Whether she is 15 or 20, she has no hope at all singing at a major singing contest like Eurovision. She was a total wreck at the Carols & looked anything but a professional singer. There is a difference between an entire Country voting for her & genuine, real Musical & vocal ability. If you don’t understand the meaning of that, google her name & Carols & compare to the other Artists, if you still don’t understand then I’m sorry to say you are deaf.

Nobody tampered the polls. Marlisa=/=Nina Sublatti. No one even knew about this poll among Marlisa’s fanbase in her country (Eurovision isn’t even famous there even if one of our broadcasters had it aired once in 1973 if I am not mistaken). People simply think she is talented enough despite her age and all. Well she could join if the EBU modified their rules like how they allowed Australia to join when they’re not even anywhere near the EBU coverage areas or how they allowed Michele Perniola to announce San Marino’s votes at the age of 15 when all spokespersons should… Read more »

There is no way Marlissa legitimately made it to the top.
Stop tampering the polls just to get a reaction out of people.

Meh, so she’s 15. None of the other rules apply to Australia, so why should this one?

Sorry this Poll needs to be audited. There is no way in Hell Marlissa is Vocally ready. Her label can produce songs for her in Studio only as we know thats the only way with sound engineering & as we all found out, when she’s singing Live she lacks vocal range, dynamics, control & technical know how.

Who are the people voting in this poll? Marlisa is hardly the best X factor winner. She won by apparently the slimmest of margins, and she has been quiet since her win. During the show she could sing but is very “young” and has a lot of maturing to do.
