This song is dreadfully boring. Poor Dami.
Why is this taking so long?
And a respectable result for Courtney
Don't think they need to change much about that performance for Tel Aviv. Great result.
2000 and Whatever was much better in my opinion, but I also like this one. Not sure if it will qualify though.
And she wrote Muriel's Wedding: The Musical? QUEEN!
Well that's DIFFERENT!
oh wow. and i thought courtney's entry was diabolical. this is spectacularly shit on so many levels. and not a single one of them is redeeming.
Good for Australia. It's landing on the side of brilliant for me.
It’s a bit of a mess towards the end, but overall I love it.
If you strip away the very Eurovision stage concept it's quite Regina Spektor-ish. I think it's a cool and interesting choice for Australia.
Electric Fields really would have been great too though.
What the fuck was that? Talk about a downgrade from last year's opera.
I doubt this would have come close to qualifying had it won, the more conservative parts of Europe would have been absolutely TERRIFIED!
Can’t work out which side of novelty Zero Gravity is, but will obviously be a pre-contest talking point and should qualify on spectacle and jury votes due to her vocal.
What a bonkers selection SO MANY of them shouldn’t have even bothered turning up. The girl with extremely messy hair and weird criss cross outfit and Australia’s answer to Paul Potts in PARTICULAR.
Duncan from Blue ballad guy and Courtney (ideally with a better song) would both also make perfectly good entries also - much better than noted televote non-favourite ISAIAH from a few years back.
Sounds like something Estonia would send in their experimental moods.
Elina sweetie I'm so sorry.
I love this
oh, the electric fields song is so much better even with the messy and somewhat off-putting stage "show".
What a shame, electric fields would have been a lot better choice, something completely different. Zero gravity is a very poor version of Estonia 2018, I can not see this qualifying at the moment. This will surely be there worst result ever.
I am obsessed with this
What a gag.
Just exploring Kate's back catalogue. This festive ditty is quite something.
This is really not very good at all is it... I don't think it will qualify. It's got no hook at all.
First time I've ever thought that Australia are not in the best 10 songs of the year I think.
I’d say it has multiple hooks!?
I'm with Cwej on this one. I don't find it a particularly interesting song, and the 'zero gravity' bits just seem to sap any momentum it's building up. I still prefer it to Guy Sebastian and Isaiah, though.
What a strange choice for Australia but I’m totally onboard.
Jessica bombing with the public shows that just sending a decent song that should do ok simply won’t cut it as outsiders - so fair play to throwing something like this in the ring.
Just given it a second go and no, sorry, there's literally no chorus, no hook. It's just odd. That 'zero gravity' bit is supposed to be the main chorus I guess? Followed by random operatic scales? Nope. Not having it.
I can understand not liking the song, but saying it has no hooks??? There’s a hook, you just don’t like it.
I've had the "Ze-he-he-he-he-he-he-ro Gravity" bit stuck in my head since Saturday. It may not be a traditional chorus but it's hugely catchy!
In other news the national final achieved SBS's highest ratings since the World Cup. I understand it's one of the smaller channels in Australia, but they should still be very happy with that.
How do you explain the repeated 'nothing holding me down' line during the last third?
This is so much better than La Forza for me and I'm thrilled that Australia didn't decide to play it safe. I definitely think it can qualify based on the spectacle of the performance alone.
Yeah not convinced about that weird bouncing guy behind her like a Halloween bat. But the song is good, better than that plodding ostrich twink a few years ago
Give her Dami's hologram glove
Omg think of all the boxes she is standing on! Now I see why this won
It's littered with hooks. SOME QUEENS need to clean the SHIT out of their ears.
You WHAT?! It's absurdly hooky!
EXACTLY! It has at LEAST four - granted the two verse ones aren't exactly huge but the idea that her vocal for ZE-HE-HE(tc) isn't even remotely memorable, let alone ONE OF THE CATCHIEST HOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ITSELF, is MENTAL
