In the Austrian final there will be five acts tonight. After some years of absence Austria has returned to the ESC in 2011, when Nadine Beiler sang “The Secret Is Love”, she achieved an 18th place in the final. The Eurovision fever came back to Austria so there have been great national final shows in the last two years. And so this will continue this year. Last year they have picked the wrong choice, the Trackshittaz made the last place in the semi final with a rap song called “Woki mit dem Popo” a provocative stage performance.
This year the choice of songs seems to be a lot smoother, no gimmick songs, all songs are nicely made from a high musical standard. Furthermore, all these songs are very good radio songs as well. It all depends about their live singing qualities and stage appearance. From the German final last night we could learn that video clips can be totally different from a live performance.
