Carniel, Jessica and Hay, Chris (2019) Conclusion—Eurovision—Australia decides. In: Eurovision and Australia: interdisciplinary Perspectives from Down Under. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Cham, Switzerland, pp. 259-279. ISBN 978-3-030-20057-2

Abstract

This chapter provides a final reflection on the themes and arguments of the collection via an examination of Eurovision—Australia Decides, Australia’s first national selection of its representative artist for the Eurovision Song Contest held in 2019. It argues that the event signals a transition in Australia’s internal and external relationships with the Eurovision Song Contest. Domestically, it has the potential to foster both tourism and local creative industries. Externally, the transition has further ramifications for Australia’s relationships with both Europe and the Indo-Pacific regions as the Australian delegation seeks to continue to participate in the original song contest while also facilitating the new Eurovision Asia event.
