24 Ways Conchita Wurst Stole Everyone's Hearts At Eurovision
SHE WAS THE BEST.
Conchita Wurst was Austria's winning entry in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. And she was amazing.
She's the drag alter-ego of Thomas Neuwirth.
And she's pretty fabulous.
No, seriously. Check out that sass.
Her song, “Rise Like A Phoenix”, stole the show.
It totally has our vote for the next Bond theme.
Seriously, listen to it.
Conchita first appeared on the Austrian casting show Die Große Chance in 2011.
And she got to the last two in Austria's national Eurovision finals in 2012.
But this year she represented them at the finals. And totally owned it.
And basically everyone in Copenhagen.
The man who created Russia's "homosexual propoganda" law called for a boycott of the competition because of her.
But Conchita just wants to show the world that you can be who you want and live out your dreams.
We hear you, Conchita.
We hear you loud and clear.
And then she won. And was completely, amazingly overwhelmed and everybody's hearts broke a little bit.
