Unfortunately, no country voted for her and took zero points after the grand final, as The Makemakes who represent Austria in the contest.
On the other hand Austria public broadcaster ORF has released the names of nine candidates. The tenth participant will be chosen on Facebook on January 14th. Also you can join the this voting via Facebook.
