From Sofia to Sydney with love. That’s right! Australia has been cordially invited to participate in the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Bulgaria in November!
Confirmed by the official Twitter account for the Junior Eurovision Press, they sent out a tweet saying “We’ve invited them #AussieAussieAussieOiOiOi #JESC2015 #discover”.

The invite, we assume, stems from the invitation from ORF and the EBU to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna earlier in the year. Although the Australian broadcaster SBS is yet to comment, we will have our fingers and toes crossed that they will accept. After all, we’ve already accepted Australia into our Eurovision bubble. They’re like family now!
After Jessica Mauboy’s guest appearance in 2014, Australia was officially represented by Guy Sebastian in the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, who managed an impressive fifth place. Check out our interview with him on the red carpet below!
