Conchita Wurst proclaimed, after she won last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, “We are unity and we are unstoppable,” raising her trophy like a sword. It was an epic moment that will for sure make the Eurovision history books. Quickly afterwards, she capitalized on the success of her speech, calling her fans #theunstoppables and now, one year on, she is releasing the single “You Are Unstoppable”.

Unlike my colleague Sopon, who didn’t quite take to the song, I am in awe of it. “You Are Unstoppable” feels more like an anthem than a follow-up single. At the same time, it is the song that Conchita Wurst was expected to drop after ‘rising like a Phoenix’ and skyrocketing to global stardom in May 2014.

The lyrics serve as an inspiration to countless people who are battling all forms of discrimination and trauma and it gives them a sense of belonging to a community. Conchita’s vocals are absolutely flawless, she even sounds like Cher in parts. When she sings, “it could be beautiful”, Eurovision fans also have flashbacks of Sweden’s 2013 entry, Robin Stjernberg’s “You”. The “bad romance” is a clear bow to LGBT icon Lady Gaga.

The lyric video also speaks to this feeling of unity of #theunstoppables. Conchita Wurst’s beard is superimposed on other people’s faces, and the meaning is clear: we are all Conchita, we are all different and we are all unstoppable. Brilliant!

Now we can hardly wait for the official video and for Conchita’s live performance of the “You Are Unstoppable” in Vienna. How about you? What do you think about the lyric video and about the message of “You Are Unstoppable”? Are you team #theunstoppables?

While I think this song could have been little bit better, it’s still good. And the lyric video is really super adorable.

I´m not a hater (don´t think other are too who don´t like this song) but this is a community and we have all the rights to say what we think. So not a hater but think this is bad!

Nice song but i’m sick of her so called empowerment songs. They are so cliche.

She should record some dance anthems for gay clubs (her prime audience)

Amazing song, always amazing Conchita. I want her to sing this at the final with all the contestants on stage like Emmelie did last year with “Rainmaker”.
