Conchita Wurst to represent Austria in 2014!
Another artist for Eurovision Song Contest 2014 has been internally selected. It will be the Austrian drag artist, Conchita Wurst, who will fly the Austrian flag in Copenhagen. Austrian broadcaster ORF confirmed this today.
Born as Tom Neuwirth in 1988, Wurst isn’t new to the Eurovision scene. She competed in the Austrian national final in 2012, coming second to Trackshittaz. Before that, she competed in the talent show “Starmania,” where Nadine Beiler (Eurovision 2011) won.
Now, the time has come for Wurst to represent Austria in the contest and attempt to bring the country to the Grand Final, which last succeeded in 2011 with Nadine Beiler.
The song is yet to be selected, but will follow at a later date. You can watch the performance that got her a second place in 2012 above.
