The national broadcaster of Austria, ORF, is expected to announce in December the artist who will represent the central-european country in the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden.
ORF’s scout Eberhard Forcher posted yesterday the below comment:
“The day before yesterday was the deadline for submissions to the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. WOW ! Unbelievable, how many great songs have come in the last few weeks. Over 60 ! Most of them are still active scouting . Peter Schreiber and my smallness have been on broadband since June probing & motivating . . . . Now the editors will invite the 15 (?) best acts to the ORF Zemntrum for video casting. The clips will then be released to the juries and the ORF will announce its choice in December at the latest. The idea of the planned public voting cannot be implemented this year for legal reasons. So much for that !”
This year Austria was represented in Liverpool by Teya and Salena with the song “Who the Hell Is Edgar?”. They qualified from the 2nd place of the Second Semi-Final, and finished in 15ht place of the Grand Final with 120 points.
