What happens if Australia win the Eurovision Song Contest?

Whether we like it or not, Australia is now officially part of the Eurovision Song Contest – and they actually have a decent chance of winning. (Unlike the UK.)

So, what the hell would happen if Australia were to be crowned champions of Eurovision, despite, y’know, not actually being a part of Europe?

Well, believe it or not, it might actually be good news for the UK if Australia do ever end up winning – if not a little cruel at the same time.

Because according to The Telegraph, Australia has previously said that it would be up for co-hosting the competition in another country – with the UK in with a chance. Strewth!

(Considering we might never get to host it ourselves outright, we would recommend taking them up on the offer if it ever arises…)

Although people are still divided about Australia’s inclusion in the contest, the Aussies have been taking part for three years now, after they were randomly invited back in 2015.

Apparently, the official line is that Australia was invited to take part in the contest after one of its networks had broadcast the event for a number of years – which is rather kind of them.

This year, Australia will be represented by a guy with great hair called Isaiah Firebrace, who will perform the song ‘Don’t Come Easy’ – which is funny, considering their consistent success.

Much to some fans’ despair, Australia sailed straight through Tuesday’s first semi-final with Azerbaijan, Greece, Sweden, Portugal, Poland, Armenia, Cyprus, Belgium and Moldova (with their Epic Sax Guy).

The second semi-final airs tonight (May 11) at 8pm on BBC Four, while the main event will kick off on Saturday at 8pm on BBC One.
