Hate to moan, but the programme started 20 minutes ago and the Facebook page is still saying “going live in 00:00” after half an hour.

Montaigne’s staging needs to be improved for sure- but do we all remember the glowup KMH had between Gold Coast and Tel Aviv? The basic concept is strong, I think it would work to have Montaigne just sing but to keep the overall choreography for the dancers.

In chrome or firefox
1. add this app, SimpleProxy by: fmage.com: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/simpleproxy/hbhaimhpaplfkjfncbkdnadppobbopbi?hl=en
2. go to this website for free proxies; http://spys.one/free-proxy-list/AU/

4. click on the name of the proxy you have inserted in SimpleProxy.
5. Watch live
6. Enjoy (I do this often 😉 )
Note: You may have to try different proxies – Australia is a difficult country to view from ‘elsewhere’, so allow time.

That’s so considerate of you, cheers. I kind of feel bad to point out that the post mentions that SBS will broadcast it via its Facebook page. too. But who knows. Maybe it won’t work!

LOL, what a Eurovision moment. She was on the floor during the national selection and standing in one place on the stage in the semi with all that bending forward thing which made no sense.

I think the jury performances will be uploaded within the hour or something like that? I’m never good with time zone conversions.
