Conchita Wurst’s many fans and competitors have been covering her winning song “Rise Like a Phoenix” since her victory back in May. So we decided to stage a little competition to see which cover is your favourite. After counting more than 300 votes, we can confirm that you believed Ula Lozar sang “Rise Like A Phoenix” best! Yes, a Junior Eurovision star has slayed all those adult singers!
With 42 votes more than her runner up, the pint-sized Slovenian easily won the poll. She made this video with her mentors, Marjetka and Raay, in late October. They say this is the first professionally-made cover, and they tailored the piece to fit their own style.
The Runner Up
Farid Mammadov, who placed second at Eurovision 2013, also finished second with us. He sang his version to his beloved iPhone, in his standard tight t-shirt (biceps much?). His notes were spot on, but his pronunciation? Not so much.
