AUSTRIA – Speaking to Independent, the 2014 Eurovision winner spoke also about her favourite song this year in the Eurovision Song Contest. Conchita is openly favouring Netta from Israel.
“I would run with Netta from Israel. If she wins I will love it. The first time I heard Toy [Netta’s track] I was like “oh my god, this is so good, so incredible”, it’s a little bit Bjork, it’s a little bit quirky. But then I have to say the chorus, to me, was a disappointment – it becomes a little bit obvious. Again, who am I to judge? I had a song that was called That’s What I Am, so it doesn’t get any more obvious than that! But y’know that’s just my taste.”
Should there be a Eurovision Drag Contest? Conchita doesn’t exclude the idea: “If it’s Eurovision then they would have to sing right? Or like a huge drag contest? The concept of every country sending a drag queen and they bring to the stage whatever they have, alright, that would be fun!”
