Australia has made its big Eurovision Song Contest debut and, safe to say, the fans down under are more than a little excited about it.

Guy Sebastian wowed the crowds with his energetic performance of "Tonight Again" in Vienna during the first half of the annual competition and within seconds, social media was flooded with Aussie reactions to their big moment.

Should Guy triumph in Vienna, Australia will be allowed to choose which Eurovision-participating country hosts the 2016 contest, which would be pretty exciting.

Not everyone was so impressed with Guy however with some complaining that the choice was dull and safe.

Guy was one of the bookies' favourites to win ahead of tonight's show, but UK commentator Graham Norton isn't convinced he has what it takes to emerge victorious.

"This was tipped to do very very well but, in the context of the other performances, I’m not sure if that’s a winner," the famously cutting and hard to please Norton said.

 

Australia has joined Eurovision for one night only (unless they win) as part of the 60th anniversary 'Building Bridges' theme. As you can see from the tweets above, Eurovision has a strong fanbase in Australia - they've finally been allowed to join the party.
