Australia has Spoken! Here are the results of the SBS Top 40!

Last night, Australian broadcaster SBS featured their Eurovision special, which featured a Top 40 countdown of Australia’s favourite Eurovision songs, as voted by the public. We’d like to stress that this is very much not definitive, and more importantly, really doesn’t reflect the opinions of ALL Australian Eurovision fans, but nevertheless, we’re recapping on the Top 40 here
