Back in May, Kate Miller-Heidke soared above the earth and Australia flew up the leaderboard. The staging of “Zero Gravity” was unique and will be remembered for many years to come. We all know what happened on top of the earth but now we finally know what happened under the skirt. Australian comedians Jenna & Vic have now revealed “The Untold Eurovision Story”.
About Jenna & Vic
Jenna Owen and Victoria Zerbst are comedians who have appeared on a number of segments on The Feed. The duo from Freudian Nip have also produced comedy content for Junkee Media and The Chaser. In this segment, Jenna & Vic are the biggest names in Australian music and dream of representing Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The segment aired on The Feed, a program on SBS, the Australian Eurovision broadcaster. Presented by Australian television personality Ray Martin, the segment tells the tale of Jenna & Vic’s unsuccessful Eurovision bid.
We are first treated to some information about the duo. They are presented as “darlings of the Australian music industry”, with Australian music icons such as Murray Cook and Shannon Noll showering the duo with praise. The duo have written their own song called “Clip-Clop”, have an unconventional formula for making music and are at the summit of the industry. Artists such as Kylie Minogue are lining up to tour with Jenna & Vic. Their popularity is international, reaching far flung places like Uzbekistan, where the duo were invited to perform at President Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s birthday party. All have been turned down, with the girls only interested in one thing — Eurovision.

Our goddess Kate Miller-Heidke then comes in to dish some dirt. She states that “Jenna & Vic were a shoo-in to represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest. I was scared of them to be honest. But on the day, they weren’t there. And I was.” The Australia Decides scoreboard also shows Jenna & Vic disqualified with their song “Clip-Clop” as Kate is declared the winner.
As the story unfolds, we find out that Jenna & Vic were dressed in Velcro for their performance. Before they could go on stage, they hugged each other and fell, becoming stuck to one another on their prop.
The mighty have fallen, with the girls losing their minds in the aftermath of Australia Decides. Naturally, they also decide to sabotage Kate Miller-Heidke at Eurovision to get their revenge. They travel to Tel Aviv and go backstage at Eurovision, planning to burn Kate’s dress. Eventually, they decide that they should be supporting Kate instead.
Ray Martin fittingly concludes, “Looking at that Eurovision stage, you might be convinced that just one southern star shone that night but as you and I now know, there were really three.”
