SBS provide update on Australia at Eurovision 2023
Following the cancellation of Australia Decides, Aussie Eurovision fans have been waiting patiently for news from broadcaster SBS.
With many nations announcing artists and holding their selection show, we reached out to the broadcaster to find out where things are at with Australia's entry for Liverpool.
A spokesperson from SBS told us,
"As news rolls out about the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, we understand loyal Eurovision fans are eager to find out who will represent Australia this year in Liverpool. The wait is almost over and we look forward to revealing who will take the prized spot on the biggest stage in the near future. We are proud to continue to be the home of the Eurovision Song Contest, and in 2023, celebrate 40 years of broadcasting Eurovision to all Australians."
Although we don't have an exact date yet, it is important to take into account when Australia has historically made announcements.
Previously, the reveals for internal selections have taken place on these dates:
2015: Guy Sebastian on 3 March and song on 16 March
2016: Dami Im on 3 March and song on 11 March
2017: Isaiah Firebrace and song on 7 March
2018: Jessica Mauboy on 11 December with song selection on 8 March
Songs will need to be submitted for the EBU Reference Group meetings which usually takes place just after Melodifestivalen (Sweden's national selection). This year that finishes on March 11.
So, fans may have to wait a few more weeks until an official announcement is made, but SBS and others are obviously working hard behind the scenes to make it all happen.
