In a bold move for Australia's Eurovision hopes, all Australian citizens and permanent residents can now apply to represent the country at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel next May.

It is also noted that the cost of processing the Bulgarian participant in the contest, including the creation of the song, her stage performance and production of the corresponding video clip, and other related preparatory activities significantly exceed reasonable amounts, which would afford company.

The broadcaster will be partnering up with Blink TV to present Eurovision - Australia Decides, a series of live performances that will take place on the Gold Coast on February 8 and 9 next year, with a vote to determine the victor.

SBS Acting Managing Director James Taylor said the staging of the selection event came by popular demand.

The national competition will be hosted by Eurovision stalwarts Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey.

Aaron Hernandez was beaten frequently and sexually abused as a child
Jonathan Hernandez also said that their father beat them regularly when they did not live up to his standards. He said the pair would smoke marijuana before and after football practice and also had a sexual relationship.

There are so many possibilities here!

As Eurovision is first and foremost a song competition, SBS is calling on songwriters across the country to "submit an original composition for consideration" before November 4th.

In the past, Aussie broadcaster SBS along with Sony, have decided who to send over, including big names like Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy.
