Christoph Waltz is up for Best Performance in a Motion Picture at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. But he won’t be the only Austrian taking a turn on the red carpet. Conchita Wurst — the reigning Queen of Eurovision — has received an invitation from Barbara Gasser, an Austrian journalist and a member of the Golden Globe jury. According to Wirtschafts Blatt, Barb is over the moon to bring some extra sausage to Hollywood. “I am pleased that the Styrian Conchita Wurst has selected the 72nd Golden Globes for her first visit to Hollywood. For me, Conchita is star power with a message and I’m sure Hollywood will you be at your feet.”

Miss Wurst is equally delighted. Speaking to the Austrian press, she was already gagging on the glamour. “A little taste of Hollywood air! Who doesn’t dream of that?” she said. “I’m really looking forward to meeting exciting and interesting people in Los Angeles. Hollywood, here I come!”

Conchita may have entered Eurovision 2014 as an outsider, but she’s emerged as perhaps the most mainstream winner ever. She’s already walked the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier, met UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon, appeared in glossy fashion spreads shot by Karl Lagerfeld, lent her voice to the Austrian-language version of Penguins of Madagascar and spoken at the Guardian Ideas Festival. She really is living up to her #Unstoppable hasthag.

Naturally all of the publicity has exacted a cost on her recording schedule. Following Eurovision she had hoped to push out an album by Christmas. But in between all the photo shoots and appearances, she’s only managed to produce one single — “Heroes” — and a cover of a charity song “Licht ins dunkel”.

But don’t start throwing shade at Miss Wurst just yet. Producing an album takes time. We’re confidant that she’ll use her skills — and all these new contacts — to produce a much higher quality album next year or the year after than she would have if she rushed it out in time for the holidays. Conchita has always said publicly that one day you’re in and the next day you’re out, so she’s right to make the most of the limelight while she can. By getting out there and working the red carpet, she’s working hard to turn those 15 minutes into a lifetime.

I never watch the Golden Globes. But I might now since Conchita is going to be there.

If I could, I would invite Conchita to my house for dinner. I make really nice tea and toast. I made stir fry in school but that’s too hard.

Lots of people want a selfie with Conchita. Not sure why some ask for music where never was and 99.(9)% sure never will be.

Conchita can record an album whenever he wants but fact is that I think all the people wote for his song in Eurovision have already left him behind cause he don’t care of them give them music instead of going on red carpet guy events etcetra and think he can build a career in glamour instead

I was so worried BeccaBoob hadn’t left a comment but there s/he is, crawling around on the bottom, yelling “Noooooo”. Ha ha.
I don’t see why Conchita has to drop everything to record an album. She can do it whenever she wants to.
