2000 and Whatever – Australia


We may not get to see our 2020 favourites take to the stage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce on our Eurovision favourites. This series is aimed to discover the team’s favourite entries from the 21st century, from 2001 to 2019.

In collaboration with Eurovision Union, we will be reviewing some of their 21st Century favourites, while over on their site, you will find their reviews of our favourites!

Below our reviews, you will find a poll where you can vote for your favourite Eurovision entry from the 21st Century.


Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again | 5th place, 196 Points (Final)

Guy Sebastian is just pure class. Australia has had better results with Dami Im, even close to winning. But just like you Anita, for me Guy is their absolute top-act. So experienced, such an entertainer. Especially since it was Australia’s first time at Eurovision in 2015, I really loved how serious and professionally they took the competition by sending Guy.

When it comes to staging, there were some mistakes made with the presentation of ‘Tonight Again’, a great track that I still play quite often. In the years that followed, Australia made great progress with staging and camerawork. Would love to see Guy make a comeback and win the entire contest.

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Kate Miller-Heidke – Zero Gravity | 9th place, 284 Points (Final)

This entry is one-of-a-kind! What an incredible entry to win your first national final with! Musically it took me a while to get into but the visual improvements on the Eurovision stage were just perfect. When Australia takes risks it pays off and this is a superb example!
