When Conchita Wurst said “We’re unstoppable”, the “we’re” obviously included Ruth Lorenzo. As we announced a few days ago, Conchita and Ruth, who promised us a duet back in May, collaborated during Saturday’s Shangay Pride concert—one of the biggest parties of the Madrid Gay Pride celebrations in Spain. Here is their powerful rendition of “Purple Rain”.
The pair met the day before as they opened the Madrid MADO 2014 Gay Pride at Chueca Plaza. As they took to the stage to address the huge crowd that had gathered, Conchita showed off her slender frame in a cream coloured ruffled dress which fell just above the knee. That waist is tiny! But she still brought her big voice as she belted out her winning Eurovision song “Rise Like a Phoenix”.
At the Shangay event, both Ruth and Conchita reprised their Eurovision hits, much to the delight of all the Eurofans present, who gave them both a standing ovation at the end of their set. Conchita also met 2009 Spanish Contestant Soraya Arnelas – as a picture on Soraya’s Twitter Page reveals.

Conchita’s appearance in Spain follows her performance at London’s Gay Pride last week in Trafalgar Square.
