How to watch Eurovision: Australia Decides Live!
There will be three live shows held on the Gold Coast, but only one of the shows will be broadcast live on television. If you want to see the all-important Jury show, you need to get along in person.
Concert 1 - The Jury Preview Show
This will take place on Friday 8 February at 7.30pm (in Qld). The show will not be broadcast, and will mark the first chance that audiences in attendance will have the opportunity to watch the 10 acts perform their songs before a live audience and the crucial panel of industry judges.
The Jury Show event is run exactly as if it were the Live Final, and, with 50 percent of the vote at stake, a show-stopping performance in the Jury Show puts a performer in very good stead as they go into the following day’s Live Final.
Concert 2 - Matinee Preview Show
On Saturday 9 February at 1pm, this daytime concert will be a great opportunity for families to come out and enjoy the 10 acts on stage.
Concert 3 - Australia Decides
This is where you get YOUR chance to vote. This live show with all 10 acts will be broadcast at 8:30pm (AEDT) on SBS on 9 February. Like with Eurovision, performers will find out on stage how they have done.
