Bookies have said that Dami is the second favourite to win, behind Russia's entry.
Australia was invited to participate for a consecutive year after joining the show as a one-off in 2015 to celebrate the event's 60th anniversary Building Bridges theme.

The country has the same rights as any other competing country, with votes from a professional jury and the voting public contributing to the final scoreboard.
