It’s been years in the making. Now Australia is finally set to launch its first-ever national final later this week. Australians will be watching with bated breath on Saturday night Aussie time (that’s 11:30am Central European Time) to have their say on who they will send to the Eurovision stage in Tel Aviv.
But it’s not fair to leave Europeans out of the loop. So it’s time for you to have your say on your favourite Australian acts in our inaugural “Eurovision: Australia Decides” poll!

The line-up includes some well-known Australian faces, as well as newcomers making their Australian music debut. Genres range from pop to opera to popera to punk rock and everything in between. Australian music is just as diverse as its people.
With that said — which songs are your favourites? Listen to the tracks below and vote for your favourites. You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once — so make your vote count!
Eurovision: Australia Decides — competing acts
Alfie Arcuri – “To Myself”
Aydan – “Dust”
Courtney Act – “Fight For Love”
Electric Fields – “2000 and Whatever”
Ella Hooper – “Data Dust”
Kate Miller-Heidke – “Zero Gravity”
Leea Nanos – “Set Me Free”
Mark Vincent – “This Is Not the End”

In the first non-televised show on Friday, each of the 10 acts will perform for the jury, who make up 50% of the final score. On Saturday, the acts will perform in a televised national final, where Australians will be able to vote by SMS.
