This morning Australia held for the first time its national final to chose the song that will represent them in Eurovision 2019

The winner was decided by a 50%/50% rate of public votes and jury 50%/50% consist of Fifa Riccobono from “Albert Music”, Milly Petriella, Josh Martin, Head of delegation Paul Clarke, and Swedish Christer Björkman.

After a long vote, and even though she had a crown on her head from the beginning of the evening, ‘Zero Gravity” by Kate Miller-Heidke won the jury and the public votes and will fly to Tel-Aviv.

As the first reaction for her winning Kate said: “I’m totally overwhelmed! This has been a peak experience already, and I’m dying with excitement at what’s to come. Thanks to everyone who voted, and to all the other artists who provided such a brilliant, eclectic and stiff competition. I’ve had a ball, and I’m so grateful and thrilled that I get to represent Australia at Eurovision in 2019.”
