4 reasons you should dare to dream Australia will win Eurovision
Why we think all eyes in Tel Aviv will be on KMH
With the Eurovision final fast approaching, there’s no better time to see how Australia really fares in the infamous song contest.
Kate Miller-Heidke embodies the ‘Aussie Battler’. Although early betting suggested the classically trained pop sensation wouldn’t even make the finals, the world has watched as she’s improved her position by leaps and bounds at every opportunity and is now one of the favourites to take out the competition... and we think she can!
Here are four reasons why the poperatic Aussie can win this year’s title for Australia:
- She impressed in the semi-final and rehearsals – Her performance saw her rocket to third in the betting and is now one of the favourites to take out the contest.
- ‘Zero Gravity’ has been well received in Europe – A press poll conducted after the first semi-final which saw Australia finish miles above anyone else.
- Very Eurovision feel to the song – Eurovision tends to have a specific ‘sound’, it’s a little quirky but it’s musically sound and often powerful. ‘Zero Gravity’ is a mix of opera, pop and EDM. That style of song with her out-of-this-world performance and her ethereal vocals combine to give her that Eurovision je ne sais quois – it has all the hallmarks of a winning act.
- Most importantly, we like to think everyone loves Australia, so there’s a great chance we can pick up some minor points in the bloc voting.
Despite being second in the betting, Australia is outstanding value to win, paying $5.50* with Ladbrokes.
