After many good results in recent years and probably another qualification for the final to come, Australia deserves a permanent spot at the Eurovision Song Contest. This believes Anita Maratheftis from Eurovision Union, an Australian journalist who is covering Eurovision in Lisbon.
Anita was our main guest in the morning podcast Daily Coffee, saying “year after year we prove that we should be there, you can see it at the results”. Our own editor Brandon McCann joins her, even stating that Australia should be granted a certain spot in the final. “But let’s not take it too far,” Anita disagrees. What do you think?
“Germany still a candidate for victory for me”
Brandon also looked back on the first rehearsal for Michael Schulte from Germany. He wrote an editorial a couple of days ago, stating he believes in the chances for Germany. “I still do,” he says now. “My main concern was if he could deliver emotionally, and he does.”
