"Maria Magdalena" - Tony Wegas
"Maria Magdalena, you are happiness and sorrow, Maria Magdalena, give me eternity"
The Austrian Final was held on March 30th at the ORF-Zentrum in Vienna, hosted by Andreas Steppan & Michael Niavarani, although the winning song had already been chosen before this. During February the 7 songs were played on the radio, after which the public were invited to vote for their favourite song by postcard. In the TV programme, pre-recorded videos of the 7 songs (all sung by Tony Wegas) were played before annoucing which song had won the postcard vote. From the 15245 postcards submitted, 6170 were for "Maria Magdalena".
