Poll, Reviews

Zoe Austria Eurovision 2016Austria achieved an amazing feat in 2015 when they managed to be one of two countries to receive nul points, incredible given that 40 nations allotted points on the night and is something that we have not seen since 2003. In 2016 they will be looking to put this behind them and recreate the magic of the year before when Conchita gave them their second ever victory with ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’. Taking on this task will be Zoe with her song ‘Loin d’Ici’ which is curiously the only song this year that will be performed entirely in French.
