ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER Eurovision disappointment.

Ireland’s Nicky Byrne was unable to advance past last night’s semi-final, beaten out of the qualifying places by, among others, Australia.

The country is a controversial inclusion in the competition – seeing as, you know… it isn’t in Europe.

So we want to know: Do you think Australia should be included in the Eurovision song contest? 

Poll Results:

No (14469)
Yes (4200)
Not sure (623)
