Sweden’s Electric shock

Electric Fields

Spoiler alert – if you’re saving all your Eurovision energy for a viewing party this weekend, skip ahead now… Despite bringing Aboriginal culture to Europe’s biggest song contest for the first time in what’s been described as a “dazzling stage performance”, Aussie entrant Electric Fields is out after the first semi-final. An estimated 162 million people saw their performance of One Milkali (One Blood) featuring the Yankunytjatjara language, but it wasn’t enough to score the votes needed to head to Sunday’s grand final. Despite the loss, vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding says it’s still a “special moment” for them. And we still have another horse in the race as Cyprus’ entrant Silia Kapsis is also an Aussie, and she’s made it through. We’ll find out who the remaining finalists are after Friday’s Semi-final 2.
