I didn't get a chance to watch Eurovision this year, but the few bits I did catch were amazingly staged. Copenhagen, you did good!
I know the contest has always had the aroma of kitsch campness surrounding it, but even I was stunned to hear a bearded drag Queen claim the 2014 crown for Austria.The song itself was a little basic for my liking, but there's no denying the guy has a set of pipes on him- with some nicely held notes, and a steady vibrato on show on the night.
Check out Conchita Wurst perform the winning song, Rise Like A Phoenix, below. And if any of you did manage to catch the show, please point me in the direction of any standout performances from the contest in the comments.
