AUSTRIA – It is no secret that Austria is back in the Eurovision game as ORF is taking the contest serious after many many years of failed results. Conchita’c victory forced ORF to be every year serious and careful with what they submit to the Eurovision Song Contest and since 2014 every year their entry whether we like it or not is receiving our respect. This is happening in 2018 as well. Cesár Sampson is more than a sexy hunk. He is talented with a great voice which has been proven from his backing vocal past in the song contest. It seems that his last venture with Kristian Kostov in 2017 made him more confident to become ready to take over the leading role on stage.
Cesár Sampson is an Austrian singer, songwriter, and model. He will represent Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 with the song “Nobody but You”. With no pompous announcements the song was released this morning and the Eurofans recognised the quality and the good structure of the song. It is no secret that this type of songs might do well Orr might just disappear in the scoreboard but on thing is for sure: we will not forget Cesár’s voice.
Sampson was born in Linz, Austria. He worked for many years as a social worker. In music domain, he was part of the music formations Symphonix International and Electric Church. Sampson had previously performed backing vocals for the Bulgarian acts for two consecutive years in the 2016 and 2017 contests. He was a backing vocalist first for Poli Genova in the Bulgarian song entry to Eurovision 2016 “If Love Was a Crime” and in Kristian Kostov’s in Bulgarian entry to Eurovision 2017 “Beautiful Mess”.
Austria has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 50 times since its debut in 1957. The country has won twice, in 1966, with the song “Merci Chérie” by Udo Jürgens, and in 2014, with the song “Rise Like a Phoenix” by Conchita Wurst. Austria currently holds the record for longest gap between wins, with 48 years between victories.
The moment we posted this article the betting odd returns for Austria had slightly risen which give a smooth and positive message that Austria is moving to the right direction. The video clip itself is well produced and of course we wish the very best for Cesár and Austria. After all for me and my team Vienna’s hosting of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest edition was one of the best ever, especially for the press and media representatives.
sexiest man in #Eurovision2018 😚
