There’s a first time for everything. Not long ago, Australia got to compete in Eurovision 2015 for the first time. It would also mark another first for Australia to win Eurovision 2018. Can Jessica Mauboy, the representative of Australia, sway the judges and audience with her singing?
43 countries in and out of Europe will be competing in 2018 Eurovision. It’s the most countries participating since 2008 and 2011. According to the latest online gambling news in Portugal, 2018 Eurovision will be held in Altice Arena, Lisbon. May 8 and 10 are the two semi-final dates while the final competition will be on May 12.
Portugal opted for an ocean theme ‘All Aboard!’ signifying the country’s location on the Atlantic coast. This theme is favorable to Australia, being a country surrounded by the ocean. Coincidence or not, the odds for Australia to win Eurovision 2018 are certainly the highest at 17/2, according to online sportsbook sites in Portugal.
Once A Guest Performer
It’s not the first time Jessica Mauboy has been on Eurovision. In 2014, she performed an interval act at the Eurovision semi-final. 125 million viewers enjoyed her show and the surprise astronaut landing. We look forward to a new performance of this caliber or even better! While waiting for the contest, why not take advantage of online gambling laws in Portugal and bet on Australia to win Eurovision 2018?
Jessica’s Rising Fame
Jessica is one of the most influential singers in Australia. Since her debut in 2006, she has sold 3.4 million albums worldwide. Her songs were streamed over 158 million times online. With her fame, there is definitely a strong fan base that will vote for her and Australia to win Eurovision 2018. Remember, 50 percent of the winner’s decision comes from the audience and the other from the judges. Jessica can count on the audience being supportive.
Apart from that, Jessica also has a competitive spirit. In an interview with SBS News, she said “I’m a very competitive person when it comes to music. It comes down to having a really great song, having something that is really catchy, and not really thinking too much about what previous artists have done.” With this outlook in mind, Jessica is planning to write an original song for the contest.
