The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is celebrating its 60th edition this year. The finals are taking place this week (from 19-21 May) and the grand final on 23 May, hosted in the city of Vienna, Austria.
With forty countries taking part, 2015 is the first year that Australia has joined as a guest entrant.
Known for the cheesy songs and (over) dramatic performances, it’s always fun to watch.
Guy Sebastian is representing Australia with the song “Tonight Again”
The Netherlands is represented by Trijntje Oosterhuis with “Walk Along”.
