After almost four weeks of voting, this morning ORF revealed the 10 songs which will participate in its televised national final on the 25th February. The finalists were decided by a combination of public votes (via SMS and Internet voting) and a jury vote.
The chosen songs, in order of highest total ranking are:
|Total Ranking||Artist||Title||Public Rank||Jury Rank|
|1||Klimmstein feat. Joe Sumner||Paris, Paris||7||1|
|2||Nadine Beiler||The Secret Is Love||9||3|
|3||Richard Klein||Bigger, Better, Best||10||2|
|4||Trackshittaz/Lucas Plöchl||Oida Taunz||2||12|
|5||Leo Aberer/Patricia Kaiser||There Will Never Be Another You||1||14|
|6||Alkbottle||Wir san do net zum Spaß||4||13|
|7||Eva K. Anderson||I Will Be Here||13||5|
|8||Band WG||10 Sekunden Glück||5||15|
|9||Oliver Wimmer||Let Love Kick In||14||7|
|10||Charlee||Good To Be Bad||12||10|
The final results held a number of upsets, with Katie Lunette, Julian Heidrich and Mary Broadcast Band missing out on a spot in the final, despite being voted into the top 10 by the public. Additionally, Alkbottle, which led the voting for a number of weeks, slipped considerably in the final ranking.
