Reactions Edit

  • None CCU: The union stated after the results that since Australia did not make it to the Big Four, they would no longer be invited to compete. A new guest country will be introduced next edition to succeed Australia.
  • Flag of Australia Australia: SBS stated that they were pleased to be in the top ten but disappointed that it was the end of the journey. They also stated that they never understood why they never made the contest international.
  • Flag of Israel Israel: IBA stated that they were disappointing being placed third to last adding that it would be their last Country Contest. This is because IBPC is to replace IBA soon, however the contest is not in their plans for the broadcaster; as a result, Israel will withdraw.
