We thought it would never happen, but despite all the odds Austria’s Conchita Wurst has won Eurovison. Did Europe make the right choice? We took to Twitter to see what the stars of Eurovison thought.

It seems the Belarussian band was not very happy with her victory. If you go read what they said those a*holes basically insulted her victory as if it was something bad. Stupid idiots <.<

Conchita is the deserved winner, well done Austria!

This is an unfortunate thing to have happened during the UK performance in several countries…https://twitter.com/DomxCyrus/status/465544486329016320/photo/1

MTD, why don’t you try to be less arrogant and accept other people’s choices? For once in a long period of time there is a winner from the LGTB community. And you go on complaining about gay clubs and credibility and stuff? Don’t be silly. Conchita deserved to when, a vast majority decided so. Please accept it.

if there are countries that withdraw from eurovision next year because conchita won, i hope the EBU informs them that can never return to the competition. either they take part politely, or then don’t come back. looking back on the winners of the last 10 years, there were two host countries that most people would avoid, but in the spirit of eurovision a lot of countries still participated. this showed maturity, a willingness to learn about other peoples opinions and an opportunity to create lasting friendships across borders. (I won’t mentioned the names of teh countries, but I’m sure that… Read more »

It’s so good to see that in Belarus, conchita came 4th in televote, and in Azerbaijan and Russia she came 3rd!

The Azeri juries tried to kill her but she still got one point, and actually 4 members of the russian jury all put her in the top 10, only one put her 21st

ESC has never been my favourite event in the past years, but now it is on one level with the nobel peace price. Winning for beeing black or for beeing gay instead of judging who really deserves to win. Tolerance means to tolerate something – it doesen’t mean that you have to like or even give an award to someone just because he’s different. I think gay people are a good thing. They are the wests answer to chinas one child rule. But is it really neccessary that our children have gay idols? Yes it is! Because we are to… Read more »

Televoting is very important. Much more important than juries because it literally means millions of people votes that paid to vote. It is a huge success for Poland.

Ok can someone explain wth happened. Poland televoting 5th? Juries saw sense. Greece and UK near the bottom? Poor France 🙁 one of the only lively happy songs of this year. Voting very odd this year but well done to Austria!

I knew right after watching Molly’s performance that it wasn’t gonna do well. It lacked energy and movement. We saw a strong vocal performance with lots of stage presence on a preview video before the contest and we ended up with a statue at the Grand-Finals. BBC once again ruins their chances with these last minute changes. Same thing happened in 2011 – Blue changed the arrangement of their song. We got a different sounding song.

It’s ok if you didn’t like Conchita’s song. But to try to discredit her win because of who she is, it’s pure BS. The performance was great. I liked The Netherlands better, but I would’ve given 10pts to Conchita anyway. About the east withdrawing, well…it would be their loss. Missing the chance of competing at Eurovision for something like this just proves who narrow minded, 1800’s prejudice filled and pretty much immature those countries would be. I have faith they won’t miss the contest next year, since many of them (Ukraine, and Azerbaijan mostly) always bring good quality acts and… Read more »

What a crazy and unexpected eurovision this year… Although some mishappenings always happens, I really think we had wonderful results. >> Conchita…. Truly congratulations! You and your performance were terrific and you convinced me to take you from the 20’s to to the top 3. >> Netherlands: what a great surprise… You were always on my top 10, since the beginnning…. And I don’t know…. Now I think i preferred to be in Amsterdam in 2015… (not that Conchita don’t deserve it) >> Sanna: it’s true that you took a loooooong time to catch me… But you you finally did… Read more »

I will just copy-paste my comment from the other thread: I really do wish the ESC to fall on a level where it will be just another gay club event of the many. Eurovision lost its credibility tonight – one hell of a show turned cold when Austria was declared a winner. I don’t have anything against gay men or similar but maybe that “in your face attitude” is what made Russia to write their laws and try to keep its traditions sacred. But you blame them just for that and boo their overall presence actually in CPH. Shameful, shameful.… Read more »

I have a feeling this might happen, I think Russia, Belarus and Ukraine will definitely be gone next year, which will free up 3 spaces for songs that truly deserve to qualify.

Kind of hoping the same (Poland and all countries west and south of it), but I still want Romania, Moldova, Estonia, and Ukraine. Any other country east of Poland I won’t miss.

I really do hope that next year, in Vienna, the whole Eastern part of Europe will withdraw.

If this song were sung my a straight man or a woman it would have never made it out of the semi finals unless this were the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest. So apparently ESC stands for Eurovision Statement Contest. I watch this for entertainment for for a political movement.

Congratulations from Teo, but none of the juries from his country placed Austria above 20th place! That stinks.
