Perhaps the most controversial moment in the build-up to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest was the announcement of Australia’s first ever participation. The Austrian broadcaster, ORF, have taken their tagline ‘Building Brides’ to a whole new level, by inviting Australia to have a one-off participation. Could you imagine a bridge connecting Vienna to Sydney? It would certainly put the Øresund to shame…
Upon the announcement of Australia’s participation, it was also revealed that Australia would have the opportunity to vote in both semi finals as well as the grand final, and we have just learned who will announce the points for the land down under! It’s none other than Miss Lee Lin Chin!
INTRODUCING LEE LIN CHIN!
Indonesian-born Lee Lin Chin is a well-known SBS newsreader and, gurl, does she pack a lot of sass! Lee Lin Chin reports daily for the SBS World News and has an admirable vocabulary and will have no issues pronouncing country names (sorry Linda Woodruff!).
Guy Sebastian will represent Australia in the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final on the 23rd of May with the song ‘Tonight Again’. Check out our interview with Guy Sebastian on the red carpet of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 Opening Ceremony below!
