Austria: The announcement of the artist in December!

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.

Austria: Teya’s & Salena’s outfits for Eurovision!

The Austrian National Broadcaster ORF has revealed through social networks the outfit of the duo that will wear on the Eurovision stage.

The clothes Teya & Salena will wear were created in collaboration between two designers. Johann Erhardt from Berlin’s “Haderlump” atelier and creative director and stylist Maximilian D’ Antonio took care of the outfits for the two women, who will represent Austria in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Teya commented:

“The outfits reflect our personalities and still go together. Our classic colors will also be seen on the big stage. So it’s not a big surprise, except maybe for those who expected us to appear in secretarial outfits and moustaches.”

Also Salena noted:

“We feel incredibly comfortable and are very excited to see how we will stage the outfits. The team behind the design fully understood and implemented our vision – also in such a way that we didn’t lose our individuality. We love it.”

Austria: Eurovision 2023 representative will be announced tomorrow!

Austria’s national broadcaster, ORF, announced a few minutes ago via its website that the announcement of the artist who will represent the country in Liverpool will be made tomorrow during the Ö3-Wecker radio show on Hitradio Ö3, which will be broadcast from 5am to 9am CET.

The Ö3-Wecker show has presented the country’s representative in the Eurovision Song Contest every year since 2017. Because of this many suspect that the announcement of the representative will be made around 6:40 CET as this was the scheduled flow of the show in previous years, but of course this is not confirmed.

As we have already informed you, the representative for Eurovision 2023 is reportedly a woman, with rumours saying that the entry is the female duo Teya & Salina with the song Who the hell is Edgar.

Last year Austria was represented in Turin by LUM!X and Pia Maria with the song Halo but failed to qualify for the grand final as they finished 15th in the first semi-final.

ORF, Austria‘s public broadcaster , has already started the search for a representative for Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool. For another year, Austria will select its representative by internal selection, as has been the practice in recent years.

Last weekend, ORF invited 15 artists who were found through internal live casting , either through the two producers Eberhard Forcher and Lukas Hillebrand . The recorded videos will be rated by the jury of the Austrian channel and some international experts of the Contest (about 25 people) and also by Eurovision fan clubs in several countries.

From those selected so far, ORF program director Stefanie Groiss-Horowitz and entertainment program manager Alexander Hofer will choose who will fly Austria’s flag in Liverpool next May. After three consecutive eliminations , the country seems determined to return to the Final .

Last year’s representatives of Austria were LUM!X and Pia Maria with the song “Halo” who, despite the great interest of the fans in their song, ultimately failed to make it to the Grand Final, finishing 15th  in the  first semi-final :
