Kate Miller-Heidke said, “Also thrilled to learn that I came 1st place in Semi Final 1 – holy actual shit! We were also the first Australians ever to win the Eurovision Marcel Bezençon Artistic Award for our staging – here being held by Philip Gleeson, creative director of Strange Fruit, who was responsible for our choreography, as well as training me in how to use the pole, and for convincing me it was possible in the first place.”

Definitely our best staging yet. Congrats.
