Australia had been relatively silent (or is it coy?) on who their Eurovision pick for 2016 would be. This hasn’t stopped many people speculating who it would be. Two names were being touted by various press outlets in the Land of Oz- Delta Goodrem and Australian X-Factor Season 5 winner Dami Im. Earlier this week Delta took to social media to deny that she was involved. Therefore when they broke the silence, it came as no shock that Dami Im would be the pick when it was announced earlier today.
Tonight saw the end of Israel talent search competition ‘Israel’s Rising Star’. After months of auditions, eliminations and tonight’s final, Hovi Star was crowned the winner with song ‘Made of Stars’ which he will sing, representing Israel at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
