We all knew Aussies were crazy for Eurovision and now that they were able to take part and scored a great 5th place with Guy Sebastian's Tonight again even more so. Hundreds of them gathered together at 5am in the fresh Australian fall to watch the show together on megascreen provided by SBS in Melbourne. 263.000 even watched it live on television at that hour, and nearly 600.000 the replay at 7.30pm later that day. All in all the semifinals and the final gathered 2,1 million vievers with a peak over 4,2 million. Not bad at all!
The burning queston now is of course will EBU let them back next year again, despite the original plan of one year only. I would say Yip!
