EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2019: AUSTRALIA – ‘Zero Gravity’ By Kate Miller-Heidke

Eurovision 2019 – Australia

By Steve McSteveface

The Australia song is called ‘Zero Gravity and is performed by Kate Miller-Heidke.

ARTIST

Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of contemporary pop, folk and opera. She’s released four studio albums in Australia, achieving multi-platinum status and appearing in the top 10 album and singles charts numerous times.

Her most recent album O Vertigo! debuted at number four on the Australian album charts, broke Australian crowdfunding records and was nominated for an ARIA award.

SONG

Kate says “Zero Gravity is a song about emerging from a depression. I went through a very low period after the birth of my son. The song tries to capture the feeling of coming back to life. I really wanted to write a song that seamlessly blends pop and opera in a non-cheesy way.”

LIVE PERFORMANCE

OPINION

Well this is a big mash up of everything isn’t it. It’s certainly memorable and has something for everyone. I guess it’s a love it or hate it kind of song and I love it!

The performance is Eurovision-tastic but I think they have to change the big dress as it’s very Estonia last year. Keep it crazy but change it up!

PREDICTION

First of all it’s Australia so it’s going to qualify for sure. If she nails it on the night this could be top 5!

LYRICS

“Hey you

It’s me again
Hey you
Stone in my shoe
I’ve been aching
Feeling low
You’re so heavy
I have got to let you go
I’m going where there’s zero
Gravity
Zero
Gravity
Zero gravity
I’m free, oh
Hey you (hey you, hey you, hey you)
Lock with no key
Hey you (hey you, hey you, hey you)
Earth with no sea
I’ve been freezing
On the ground
You’re so heavy
I can’t let you keep me down anymore
Oh, zero
Gravity
Zero
Gravity
(And it feels like) oh
(And it feels like) oh
(And it feels like) ah
(And it feels like) ah
Nothing holding me down
Nothing holding me down
Nothing holding me down now
Nothing holding me down
Nothing holding me down
Nothing holding me down
Nothing holding me down now
Nothing holding me down
Zero (nothing holding me down, nothing holding me down)
Gravity (nothing holding me down now, nothing holding me down)
Zero (nothing holding me down, nothing holding me down)
Gravity (nothing holding me down now, nothing holding me down)
Zero (nothing holding me down, nothing holding me down)
Gravity (nothing holding me down now, nothing holding me down)
Zero (nothing holding me down, nothing holding me down)
Ah”
