She won Australia’s first national selection a few weeks ago and in the process beat out big fan favourites including Electric Fields and Sheppard.
And now, Kate Miller-Heidke has revealed that the staging of her song “Zero Gravity” will change completely.
On the big night, Kate performed her song about depression in a towering dress with blue projections and silver details, which put many in mind of the Statue of Liberty.
Behind her, there was an acrobat who swayed around in several directions, which sparked much discussion among Eurofans.
In a fresh interview on Australian TV show The Project, Kate did say she loved the national final staging of “Zero Gravity”, including the “Dementor” backing dancer:
“I personally find it a beautiful sort of haunting weirdly vulnerable, sort of etherial and yet really human form of art. I love it.”
However, the opera singer revealed that it will be changed up and that she thinks it’s going to be better. Obviously she can’t disclose any details yet but she knows that she still has a lot work to do. She also didn’t address a question from a host about whether her acrobat will be with her in Tel Aviv. Watch this space.
She furthermore stated in the interview that she is self-conscious about participating at Eurovision as it is an amazing yet huge responsibility and Eurovision is a tough competition. Even Australia Decides was a very tough competition and she nailed it and we’re sure that she will improve even more until the semi finals in May!
Kate will perform “Zero Gravity” during the second-half of the first semi-final on May 14.
