    Man, this makes little to no sense at all. Why would they only now tell us about this new version and why only for the UK? Makes no sense to me.

    Is it also coming to Australia as well? Usually it is what happens, what they get we get. :)

    I assume that it will also come to Australia as well? Usually it is what happens, what they get we get. :) Plus there are some Australian songs in the list.
