With Conchita Wurst being the first drag artiste to win Eurovision, it’s not surprising that she would inspire others to follow in her fabulous footsteps. British diva La Voix is now making a bid to represent the UK in 2015 — and it seems she’s rather serious about it. The fiery redhead tweeted:
How intriguing! La Voix was last seen as a semi-finalist on the 2014 series of Britain’s Got Talent, where she performed a show-stopping rendition of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” with the London Gay Big Band.
Her BGT performance shows that La Voix can indeed hold a note, but without a big band, dancing boys and a nearby Simon Cowell to tease, would she have enough to make an impact on the big stage at the Stadthalle? La Voix’s team of supporters think so, with the #LaVoix4Eurovision hashtag getting a workout.
What do y’all think of La Voix’s bid to represent the UK? Should the BBC follow in Austria’s footsteps and send La Voix to Vienna? Or would the UK be better going in a new direction for 2015?
