She’s done it! Jessica Mauboy through to Eurovision grand final

Australia’s sweetheart Jessica Mauboy has made it through to the grand final of Eurovision.

The 28-year-old, who shot to fame on Australian Idol in 2006, brought the house down with her hit ‘We Got Love’, which was especially written for the popular song contest.

This is Mauboy’s first time representing her country at competitive level, but not the first time she’s been on a Eurovision stage.


In 2014, Mauboy was invited to Denmark to perform during the music competition’s interval.

The Darwin girl was one of 10 competitors to have made it through in the second semi-final.

Norway, Serbia, Denmark, Moldova, The Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, Slovenia and Ukraine also progressed.

The Grand Final will take place on Sunday 13 May.
