Australia's Eurovision Entry Has Made It Through To The Grand Final

Australia's Eurovision entry, Kate Miller-Heidke, has made it through to the competition's 64th Grand Final in Israel.

Soaring high above the stage floor, the Aussie smashed her song 'Zero Gravity' and pushed her way into the last round.

Kate now joins Greece, Belarus, Serbia, Cyprus, Estonia, Czech Republic, Iceland, San Marino and Slovenia in the Grand Final but sadly Finland, Montenegro, Poland, Hungary, Belgium, Georgia and Portugal have all been sent packing.

She's taken to Instagram to thank everyone for their support.

"Hello everybody, thank you so much for voting for me, I am totally overwhelmed right now. I'm so thrilled to be going through to the final. I'm over the moon -- literally and metaphorically. Thank you so much."

There were concerns Kate wasn't going to be able to compete at her best after suffering a health scare earlier this week, according to 9 Honey.

She'd reportedly suffered an infection from wearing high heels, but thankfully it seems like she was able to overcome it and smash the competition.

"I came back from Europe with a very serious infection which can end in amputation or even death," Miller-Heidke shared on Facebook. "All from a blister. Anyone who has worn them knows high heels can kill -- but I never took it literally.

"The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Every day was chockas with some kind of preparation. I was sprinting towards May, getting my 'Pop Olympics' brain on, and utterly unprepared to have all my plans derailed by such unexpectedly shitty luck.

"The first couple of days in hospital passed in a blur of needles, pain killers and Netflix and tears."

Miller-Heidke beat out other Aussie performers including Courtney Act former The Voice Australia winner Alfie Arcuri to represent the country at the biggest music event of the year.
