Aussies may be singing their praises; however, some tweeters aren't so happy.
One Twitter user, Callum Rowe posted "If Australia can enter Eurovision, let's invite Cambodia. Oh, Kiribati want an invite? Sure thing. Sri Lanka? Go on then!"
Mike Conley used the news of Australia competing in the song contest, as an excuse to bring up the 2004 movie "Mean Girls".
Both media outlets in Australia and across Europe got involved in the debate, with celebrities even jumping in, to give their views.
Jack Dee, a British comedian said on Twitter that he was "relieved to see that Australia will be adding a much needed touch of sophistication to the Eurovision song contest."
Innocent Drinks, a UK based smoothies company posted two Twitter comments on the matter, with one post advising followers: "IMPORTANT GEOGRAPHY UPDATE: Australia have joined the @Eurovision song contest. Please update your world maps accordingly."

2015's Eurovision song contest will take place over the course of three days in May; with the finale taking place 23rd of May, in Vienna, Austria. Watched by more than 195 million people last year, the live event has already sold out with ticket prices reaching up to 390 euros ($441).
One thing the organizers do not seem to have considered is what if Australia wins? Not only does it get to compete again next year, it will have to host the competition.
