Australia returns to Eurovision

Australia returns to Eurovision

Australia is back in the Eurovision Song Contest with 37 countries confirmed for Malmö, Sweden next May.

This marks the first confirmation of Australia’s return after the guaranteed inclusion from the EBU expired in 2023.

SBS is yet to confirm its plans for song selection for 2024 with its Eurovision producers, Blink TV.

Dami Im has previously indicated a desire to return to Eurovision but yet to be invited.

A total of 35 broadcasters will return from Liverpool 2023, as well as Belgium’s French-speaking Walloon broadcaster RTBF (who alternate participations with VRT, the Dutch-speaking Flemish broadcaster) and Luxembourg’s RTL who take part for the first time since 1993.

Whilst Romania is currently not confirmed to compete next year, talks are continuing with TVR on their potential participation as well.
