So Kate Miller-Heidke for Australia did incredibly well and made the Top 10 at Eurovision with 'Zero Gravity'. Now the points are all out let's look at the voting numbers that came out for Australia and who we voted for.

It was our fourth top 10 in five years, a very impressive record. The 285 points Kate received is actually very high for a 9th place. In other years this would have put us in the 5th to 7th range and when Isaiah finished 9th in 2017 he only received 174 again with a very impressive 285 points.

Our highest jury points were 12 from Romania and Poland and our highest televote was 10 points from UK, Ireland and Iceland.
