Eurovision: DNA Snaps The Stars In First Semi Final

SBS Australia

Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke has been voted through Semi Final 1 of the Eurovision Song Contest, and will compete for Australia in the Grand Final in Tel Aviv, broadcast live and exclusive on Sunday 19 May (AEST) on SBS.

Overnight in Tel Aviv, Israel, Kate took to the stage to perform her rousing, uplifting operatic pop song Zero Gravity impressing fans, the worldwide voting audience and jurors from competing countries to be one of the ten artists voted through to the Grand Final. 

“I’m absolutely ecstatic. It’s such an honour to be the first artist voted by the Australian public to represent the country at Eurovision and I hope I’ve done everyone proud. Competing on the world’s biggest stage in front of around 200 million people on a bendy pole five metres tall is no small feat, but I’ve had an incredible team behind me – and below me – and would like to thank them for their support. I can’t wait to be part of the Grand Final and see what all the other amazing acts are going to bring to the stage,” Kate said.

Others through Semi Final 1 are Cyprus’ Tamta, Slovenia’s Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl, Czech Republic’s Lake Mawli, Belarus’ Zena, Serbian Nevena Božović, Iceland’s Hatari, Estonia’s Victor Crone, Greece’s Katerine Duska and San Marino’s Serhat.

DNA reporter Cain Cooper is at Eurovision and has been capturing the action.
