We’re all excited for the London Eurovision Party tomorrow in London. But that wasn’t the only Eurovision event in town this weekend. Last night Austria’s Conchita Wurst was the headline act at Eurofest, a celebration of europop and Eurovision in London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern. The team from wiwibloggs.com was on hand to shoot shaky videos on our iPhones. (I’m sorry, but after three G&Ts, we were not going to fool around with a tripod or expensive equipment).
Conchita treated the audience to three songs. First she sang “That’s What I Am”, her entry for Austria’s 2012 selection which only narrowly lost to the Trackshittaz. Conchita appeared on stage in hotpants crafted from leather straps, and wore a glittery red cape with MASSIVE SHOULDER PADS. That’s power dressing, y’all!
Then she sang her Eurovision 2014 number “Rise Like a Phoenix”. Conchita’s dark, smoky vocals work very well with this sultry ballad, which wouldn’t be out of place in a 1920s jazz bar. She’s really owning it!
And finally Conchita reprised the song that started her on this journey way back in 2011. That’s right people: She dropped a little Celine Dion action with “My Heart Will Go On”!
Conchita may be a singing diva, but she’s still not a diva diva. She always has time for her fans and signed this postcard for all of her supporters on wiwibloggs.com. She loves y’all so much!
