Her win is probably my biggest national pride in the Eurovision, mainly because I am French-Canadian as well, just like her, and because that song is an absolute masterpiece among the entire French language music industry worldwide. Another classic that I will never get tired of!
However, if Australia Decides were to increase its number of viewers as a percentage of total population from 1.3% to France’s 3.5%, Australia’s national final would reach approximately 900,000 viewers, surpassing Portugal’s Festival da Cançāo and getting closer to Norway’s MGP.
It’s definitely hard to be so far away and having no one in real life to speak to about the contest, the added difficulty to attend and to be near all your favorite artists and knowing you won’t be able to vote or to feel the excitement of seeing your country win and welcoming the show on the following year and all that comes with it!
My favorite Eurovision winner is 1944 by Jamala, 2016 was a perfect show that stayed dynamic and dramatic until the very end + the song is a timeless winner
