In case ya missed it, the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final is tonight… while tomorrow morning at 5am for Australians which either means sleep now or stay up late. Representing our good nation is Aussie sweetheart Jessica Mauboy who completely smashed the semi-finals with her performance of We Got Love.
You can relive the glory here:
Safe to say, Australia is extremely excited especially since we were bloody robbed in 2016 when Dami Im came second.
The finals, which are taking place in Lisbon, Portugal this year will also be replayed on SBS Sunday night 7.30 in case the thought of waking up at 5am horrifies you.
Anywhoo, here we goooooo:
SBS are in the house.

Meanwhile, our very own Masterchef fave Adam Liaw is galloping around Australia hosting the ultimate Eurovision party. As you do. You can read more about that here.
As you can imagine, Jess is getting a lot of love from the country and no matter what goes down tomorrow morning, we’re going to be extremely proud of her.

In between rehearsals, Jessica even found time to clap back at Ryan ‘Deadpool’ Reynolds.
Long story short, Ryan dissed Australia for being in Eurovision and all that so Jessica replied:

Best of luck to our Aussie queen and to the nine other stars!
I don’t mean to brag, but I’m standing outside on a footpath in St Kilda eating a sausage roll watching Eurovision 2018 through the window of a kebab shop with the subtitles on. #JessicaMauboy
