In the Austrian final there were five songs. The quality has been generally high and the stage has been very stylish. Due to the bad result last year the Austrian broadcaster ORF has improved the quality of the national final.
There has been an international expert jury and televoting with a 50/50 weighting. The winner of the night has been Natália Kelly, who has been the second favourite of the jury, but the clear winner of the Austrian public. The song is called “Shine” and it is a contemporary love song with cool elements and a strong backing choir. This is a quite strong song for Austria and it deserves to be in the final in Malmö.
