How has being thousands of kilometres away affected Aussie preparation?
What’s the delegation most worried about?
How has SBS prepared for televising the shows?
Who’s going to be telling Europe who we voted for?
This contest is also Josh’s final one as Head of Delegation and Commissioning Editor of Entertainment and Food at SBS. Michael asked Josh what dreams he has for Eurovision in Australia.
