Australia was among six nations to be knocked out of Eurovision in the song contest’s first semi-final in Rotterdam on Tuesday.
Ireland, Croatia, Romania and Slovenia were also eliminated.
Australia’s early exit marks the first time the country has failed to make the final since it began competing in 2015.
Iceland’s act has also been forced to withdraw after one of its members tested positive for Covid-19, although its song will remain in the contest.
Organisers announced on Wednesday that Daði og Gagnamagnið had “taken the difficult decision to withdraw from performing… as they only want to perform together as a group”.
A rehearsal performance of their song 10 Years will be screened during Thursday’s semi-final, and again on Saturday should they progress to the final.
Australian singer Montaigne did not travel to the Netherlands to perform on Tuesday, pre-recording her song Technicolour remotely.
Azerbaijan, Belgium, Cyprus, Israel and Lithuania were among the 10 competing nations to be voted through.
Malta, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine will also participate in Saturday’s final.
