Australia’s official participation

My first reaction to surprises tends to be really boring.

The test got moved to Wednesday instead of Monday. What?

The store is out of sweet potato vines and amaranth prices are way too high. What?

Oklahoma plans on replacing AP United States History with a more conservative curriculum: What?

Australia is participating in the Eurovision Song Contest. WHAT THE…?!?!?!

I thought Australia’s interval act performance was going to be it because Australia’s not a full member of the European Broadcasting Union. But this year they’re actually participating…

And then my mind ended up having an argument over this happening:

  • They’re not even part of the EBU! But they’ve been streaming the contest for over 30 years!
  • But what about that they’re not even in the right time zone? Azerbaijan and Iceland aren’t exactly on Central European time either
  • So how come they get to vote in both semis and participate as a Big 5/6? It’s a one-off event, and I don’t think they’re really going to win…
  • But what if they *do* win? It’s still going to be hosted in the EBU, probably Germany.

Anyways, let’s go back to watching Jessica Mauboy’s performance from last year…
