Eurovision 2023: Catherine Martin announced as Australian spokesperson
Four-time Oscar winner and legendary costume designer Catherine Martin has been revealed as the spokesperson for Australia at the Eurovision 2023 Grand Final.
SBS made the announcement on the morning of May 10 Australia time.

In a statement Catherine was enthusiastic about presenting the results of the Australian jury.
"I am excited to be the spokesperson for Australia at this year's Eurovision Song Contest."
"Since my first memories of ABBA exploding onto the stage and becoming the worldwide phenomenon they are, I have been obsessed, not only with the extraordinary celebration of music and songwriting but also with the inspiration, staging, costuming, and lighting."
"Eurovision celebrates not only musical excellence but the presentation of music, in visually extraordinary ways."
Catherine will present the results of the Australian jury Sunday morning Australian time, or Saturday evening in Europe.
The names of the five-member Australian jury have yet to be revealed. This year due to a change in the voting system their votes will only count in the Grand Final.
