Kate Miller-Heike did Australia proud taking ninth place at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.

Earlier in the week Dance Direct gave Kate an estimated 18th place on its song breakdown algorithm but stressed the algorithm did not take into consideration the performance at the show as that was yet to happen.

However, Dance Direct expected a higher position for Kate (which she achieved) based on the unknown factor of her look on the day. “From the rehearsals it looks like her performance and dress will be a challenge to top,” Laura Crimmons of Silverthorn Agency told Noise11.com prior to the contest.

The Dance Direct algorithm predicted the outcome based on BPM, Dance-ability, Energy, Loudness, Valance (mood) and Speech-iness. The formula predicted at win for Duncan Laurance from The Netherlands, which was correct.
