Eurovision: Australia to join the fun. Will Japan be next?

There will be two big events in May this year. A General Election that may be worth while staying up the night to watch an uncertain outcome and of and then as we  recover from the shock comes the Eurovision song contest.

This year has a little surprise in store!

Eurovision TV announces:

This year, the Eurovision Song Contest celebrates its 60th anniversary. To give the anniversary celebrations an extra dimension and to walk the talk on this year’s theme Building Bridges, the EBU and host broadcaster ORF invited Australia to compete in the Grand Final of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. This brings the total amount of represented countries to 40

Australia will announce it's entry shortly.

This will only be a "one-off", but there are several non-European countries already taking part. Armenia, Georgia and Israel are regular participants.

I thought it would be fun to speculate on a future Japanese entry. 

Baby Metal?

Why not? We've had the contest won by the "bearded lady" from Austria and a Goth Metal band from Finland.

Here's a sample track from the girls if you have not heard from them before.
