After a very long evening spent listening to a variety of songs — cheap and expensive, well-produced and hastily thrown together — Austria (or, rather, its jury) has made its choices. We now know the six songs that will compete in the final of “Wer singt für Österreich?”. Do any have the potential to take Austria back to the Top 10?
WER SINGT FÜR ÖSTERREICH? – FINALISTS
Out of the 12 songs that were performed this evening, the jury decided that these six most deserve to fight for the ticket to Vienna on Friday night:
Celina Ann – “Utopia”
Dawa – “Feel Alive”
The MakeMakes – “I Am Yours”
Folkshilfe – “Who You Are”
Johann Sebastian Bass – “Absolutio”
Zoe – “Quel filou”
International songwriters worked their magic on the Austrian songs. We owe our thanks to Sharon Vaughn, who wrote for example Helena Paparizou’s “Survivor“, Julie Frost, songwriter of Lena’s “Satellite” and Jimmy Harry, who collaborated with Bruno Mars.
Now what do you think? Is Austria taking it seriously in 2015? Who is your favourite?
