We will still continue to explore the possibilities of Eurovision Asia, together with the EBU but our main focus will be on ‘Eurovision: Australia Decides 2020’.

17 countries initially confirmed their interest/participation in the event, which was first established back in late 2017. The highly-anticipated production will be hosted by SBS, Blink TV in co-operation with the EBU, the official organisers of the event.
