Conchita Wurst – the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 – will appear during the final of Melodifestivalen 2015

The final of #melfest will pick Sweden’s contestant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna.

Christer Björkman, the supervisor of Melodifestivalen, remains tight-lipped about what Conchita will do on stage, suggesting she may not actually sing.

“I won’t reveal exactly what she’s doing but it will be spectacular and fun to watch!”

Conchita recently met Melodifestivalen 2015 hosts Sanna Nielsen and Robin Paulsson on a visit to Stockholm.

Conchita has already made an appearance during national selection season. She appeared at Malta’s national final to perform her winning song ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ and new single ‘Heroes’.

A performance by the previous year’s winner has become a recurring feature of national selection season. Last year Emmelie de Forest extensively toured that year’s Eurovision Song Contest anthem ‘Rainmaker‘.

Conchita is the reigning Eurovision champ, so she gets one year of attention (which she thoroughly earned).

Though I can’t quite see the spotlight going off her once June comes around…

@ Dhani: You hate everything swedish, big deal, move on!

To be on MF … not surprised … I am still expecting someone to make a reality show for Conchita called “Keeping up with the sausage” and her need for fame and attention will be finally fulfilled. Only then I will be believe she has risen like a Phoenix … and then maybe fall from grace into obscurity replace by the next big thing seeking for fame and attention. It’s how this works … I don’t make the rules.

I hope whatever she does isn’t massive overplay. Plus they could have worded it better.

I think she’d be great in the international jury and I hope she performs Rise like a Pheonix and Heroes on stage!

“fun to watch” – let me clarify: Conchita is not an animal of circus.
Officially, I hate Christer Björkman now (this is what every each Eurovision fan is liable to). And Thomas Neuwirth, if he humiliate the representer of many gays, Conchita Wurst, just for money or much more fame.
