EUROVISION 2016: A PREVIEW.

Eurovision Song Contest 2016 logo.svg
THE HOST CITY?
Sweden will be hosting the ESC next year. The host city is to be announced. 
PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES?
Some countries have already confirmed they will be participating. The Ukraine and Turkey have announced they will be returning to the annual competition. The UK is considering opting out of the contest or at least competing in a semi-final.I think both scenarios are most unlikely.
AUSTRALIA?
The big question is whether Australia will be invited back? Sweden awarded its "douze points" to the debutante nation. Australia happened to do the same to Sweden. 
This nation's love affair with Sweden can be traced back to 1973, a year before ABBA won Eurovision. The group had already charted that year with "Ring Ring" here (a song that was not selected to represent Sweden that year). 
In 1975, when ABBA finally exploded around the world, Australia was the first country outside Scandinavia to fall under its spell. Roxette, Ace of Base and others have also scored hits here. 
Australia finished 5th which is a respectable debut.
WILL THERE BE A NEW COUNTRY INVITED TO PARTICIPATE AS A GUEST?
Australia was invited for the 2015 contest and this may become permanent (hopefully!). If a new country is invited as a guest, it is most likely to be China. A clue was dropped during the Grand Final. 
12 MONTHS TO GO!
