Officials rolled out the Eurovision red carpet at Vienna’s City Hall on Sunday. And for the first time an Australian delegation trooped down it. Amongst them was SBS commentator, Julia Zemiro. We managed to pull her aside for a few quick questions, including her thoughts on the UK’s 2015 entry – Electro Velvet.
We asked if she felt there was a rivalry with the UK, and whether the Aussies were keen to beat them, she responded:
I don’t think that’s hard to do this year. So… even, you know, a lot of English don’t like the song.
Burn! Julia did caveat her damning verdict, saying “anything can happen”. She may not be an Electro Velvet fan, but she won’t object to some British points travelling down under, “if we’re good to each other, we can vote for one another… Only if you like the song of course”. Seems like Julia’s envisaging a one way street direct to Sydney.
The Australian celeb also discussed her hopes for their own entry:
“Never get cocky. I’ll be happy to not be bottom ten. That’s what I want, I don’t want to be bottom ten. Top three would be great!”
We wonder how she’ll feel if Electro Velvet end up ahead?
