Austria will perform in the first semi-final on May 10th, in the second half of the show. The last time Austria managed to qualify to the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest was in 2018, with Cezar Sampson, who finished in 3rd place overall. Last year, Vincent Bueno represented Austria with the song “Amen”, and finished 12th in the semi-final and therefore did not advance to the final.
