Kate Miller-Heidke chosen to represent Australia at Eurovision 2019

Eurovision 2019 UK Entry Revealed As Michael Rice And His Song Bigger Than Us Win Selection Show

Rice, who won BBC One's singing competition All Together Now's £50,000 prize past year, added that his track "might just be a ballad but that song's got a big message and I can't wait to perform it and show the rest of the world what this song's all about".

It's the first time the Australian public has been allowed to decide who represents them at the global song contest, which will take place in Israel in May.

"I'm totally overwhelmed! This has been a peak experience already, and I'm dying with excitement at what's to come", she said of her win.

' Thanks to everyone who voted, and to all the other artists who provided such a brilliant, eclectic and stiff competition.

Miller-Heidke topped Saturday's scoreboard, narrowly beating electronic group Electric Fields. I've had a ball, and I'm so grateful and thrilled that I get to represent Australia at Eurovision'.

Meanwhile, indie pop band Sheppard came in third place during the live decider, with professional judges and the general public having equal sway in the decision.

He was selected during Eurovision: You Decide on BBC Two after making the final three decided by a panel of judges and then winning the public vote.

2018 the fourth-hottest year in history
The last five years-from 2014 to 2018-are the warmest years ever recorded in the 139 years that NOAA has tracked global heat. Global temperatures rose 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit (0.83 degrees Celsius) than the mean of warming from 1951 to 1980.

"This could seriously be the year that Australia wins Eurovision!" said SBS Commissioning Editor Josh Martin.

The lyrics to her song detail her struggle with post-natal depression and the feeling of weightlessness as she recovered. "We are delighted for Michael and are proud to take Bigger Than Us to the Eurovision Song Contest final in May".

Last year's United Kingdom entrant SuRie finished 24th out of 26 in the Eurovision song contest after a stage invader interrupted her performance by grabbing the mic and shouting slogans about the media.

"Kate's performance tonight was quite simply breathtaking and the response from the Australian public has been overwhelming", he said.

Fans said they feel the song could be a victor at Eurovision in May.

Jessica Mauboy performed at the event in 2014 as an interval act.
