It was announced today that the EBU have accepted a proposal which will allow Australia to take part as contestants in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest for the first time which marks the 60th anniversary of the competition. The decision is an historic one and could set a precedent for other guest nations not in Europe to compete at future events.
1. Denmark became the tenth country to choose their song for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. Anti Social Media won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix on Saturday with their song ‘The Way You Are’ after receiving the highest combined votes of jury and public.
2. Runner up Anne Gadegaard wasn’t pleased with the results as she had received the highest amount of votes from the public. The ‘Suitcase’ singer took to social media to complain about the jury decision saying that it should have been her that was selected to represent Denmark.
3. The 60th Anniversary concert organised by the BBC was confirmed this week.
