VIENNA – There’s a new kid in town. Conchita Wurst – the 25-year old drag queen who has taken Europe by storm as Austria’s “bearded lady” – has won the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. Oh, and she designed her own skintight golden gown. Some people are just too talented. Congrats also to Tom Neuwirth, Fraulein Wurst’s alter-ego.

Here’s the winning song, “Rise Like A Phoenix” from the Eurovision finals in Copenhagen on Saturday.

 

The last Austrian songstress to cause this sort of sensation was Maria von Trapp! We’ve come a long way from Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… 

The End (so far)
