Go Jess. The eurovision world is about to discover Jess’ amazing voice!


CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – Australia will dedicate an entire week to Eurovision as the country sends its first representative to the contest, albeit as an interval act. Due to an eight hour time difference, the shows in Australia will not be aired live.

However, both semi finals and the grand final will be shown in full each night on Friday May 9, Saturday May 10 and the grand final on Sunday May 11 on SBS1. Over on SBS2, a Eurovision quiz show will be aired starting May 5 with celebrity guests quizzed on Eurovision’s most memorable costumes, songs and performances.

Australian singer Jessica Mauboy will perform as the interval act in the second semi final in Copenhagen. SBS and production partner Blink TV are producing a feature documentary following Jess’ Eurovision journey from Darwin to Denmark titled “Jess Mauboy’s Road to Eurovision” which will screen ahead of the second semi final.

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    I adore Eurovision, regardless of how gay or tacky it is. I never miss it ! My one regret over the years is that the TERRIFIC song of Jakob Sveistrup’s in 2005 didn’t win. It should have.
