As official competitors for the second year running, Australia's vote in the international poll counts toward the final outcome just like any other participating country, so this morning thousands of Aussies cast their vote.

Also like any other participating country, Australian's cannot vote for their own artist - and so they had to pick another competitor. 

This year's winner was of course Ukraine

Australia's favourite though was actually Belgium!

Belgium's Laura Tesoro gained Australia's douze points for her disco-themed hit called 'What's the Pressure'.

Rewatch her Semi performance below:

This was followed close behind by Bulgaria's Poli Genova and her dance hit 'If Love Was a Crime'.

See Australia's list of top ten favourites below - with the highest ranked nation at the bottom. 

Of course if you missed out on voting in the official tally, never fear, you can still have your say as to what Australia's favourite is on the SBS Eurovision website using our official Renault Rater.
