Australian Eurovision entry wants LONDON to host the competition if she wins

It looks like the Australian Eurovision entry is trying to get the UK voters on side, as she says she wants London to host next year if she wins the competition tonight.

Should Australia take home the crown in Sunday's grand finale the winner must nominate a European co-host because they aren't actually a European country.

It was previously thought that Aus would choose Germany's capital Berlin to be their co-host, but 2019's entry Kate Miller-Heidke has said that London is her city of choice.

She told : "At the moment it’s up in the air between Paris, London and Berlin.

"However, it’s a decision that’s out of my hands. But London would get my vote – I lived there for two years previously."

UK voters can't vote for our own act Michael Rice to win, but if you fancy partying at Eurovision closer to home next year Kate might be the one to vote for.

This year’s ceremony takes place tonight (Saturday May 18) in Tel Aviv due to Israel winning the singing competition last year.

Favourites to take the crown this year are currently the Netherlands, with guests Australia second favourites.

This year, 42 countries are taking part. 36 performed in the semi-finals hoping to qualify for the grand final tonight.

The host country and the 'Big Five' – UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain – are traditionally prequalified for the grand final.
