Before Asbæk was sailing around the seven kingdoms and *SPOILER* trying a little too hard with Cersei, he was one of the stars of Danish TV show Borgen

Things are looking pretty good at this year's Eurovision, with Aussie contestant Kate Miller-Heidke now on her way to the grand final this weekend. Find out more about her journey to get to the comp here.
