About Australia Decides 2022
Australia Decides returns following a break in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic to select Australia’s entry for Eurovision for the third time. The show will take place on Saturday 26th February 2022 at 8.30 pm AEDT (10.30 am CET and 9.30 am GMT). Fans will be able to watch the show live over at SBS on Demand for the first time right here.
Once again, the show will be hosted by Australian Eurovision stalwarts Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey. They will be joined by Dylan Lewis as the green room host. Eurovision entrants Montaigne (Australia 2020 and 2021) and KEiiNO (Norway 2019) will perform as interval acts. A preview show (untelevised) will take place on Friday 25th February, where the jury will cast their votes. These will be combined 50/50 with the public televote on Saturday to select Australia’s Eurovision 2022 entrant.
Australia’s Eurovision Journey
After being invited to compete in 2015 Guy Sebastian represented Australia with “Tonight Again”, which placed 5th Overall. Their best result came a year later in 2016 when Dami Im came second with her song ‘Sound Of Silence’. ‘Sound of Silence’ scored 511 points in the Grand Final and was the jury winner of the contest.
Australia’s recent participation saw Australia being represented by Montaigne (who was due to represent them in 2020), with the song “Technicolour”, which unfortunately placed 14th in the Semi-Final.
