Finishing in second place was Jon Henrik Fjallgren with his “Jag ar Fri” and making up the top five were former contestant Eric Saade, crooner Hasse Andersson and Mariette.

Last night Eurovision reigning champions Austria made their 2015 Eurovision selection. After eliminating four of the six competing acts (Johann Sebastian Bass, Folkshilfe, Zoe and Celina Ann), it became a head to head between indie rock band DAWA and eventual winners The MakeMakes.
The winning song was called “I Am Yours” which won with an impressive 24 points combined international jury and public phone vote.
As host nation, Austria automatically qualifies for the Eurovision Grand Final on the 23 March in Vienna.
Did Austria make the right choice? Are the MakeMakes worthy of following in Conchita’s footsteps? Listen to the winning song below and share your thoughts with us.
