Thought my eyes were deceiving me when i flicked over to see ho things were going in the eurovision, Australia leading in the latter stages.
Question is can anyone please enkighten me as to when they became EU members or do i not understand anything about this competition.
Eurovision would lead me to believe it is only open to European countries,maybe not.

Any info would be appreciated,thanks.

It#s anyone that is part of the European Broadcasting network... so Isreal etc can take part.

Australia took part as part of the anniversary show last year and did so well they asked to come back..
