After the fulminant victory of Austria in the 59th Eurovision Song Contest the Eurovision trophy has come back to Austria after 48 years! Thanks to the striking performance of Conchita Wurst with “Rise Like A Phoenix” the big dream of the Austrians came true and the next ESC will be held in Austria in 2015.
Since a couple of years a success in the Eurovision Song Contest also means a ranking in the single charts around Europe and even beyond. The most outstanding success had Loreen with “Euphoria” in 2012. She topped all European charts for weeks and her song is still played in the radio stations.
Right after the fabulous victory of Conchita Wurst in the Eurovision Song Contest, the bad critics came up, especially from Russia. The agitation is mainly coming from the Russian government which has already confessed to withdraw from the ESC and organizing an own “Voice of Eurasia” contest. “Russia does not need the Eurovision” they said. But does the Eurovision needs Russia? Furthermore it was said “Europe does not like Russian music and girls, they prefer man in woman’s dress with a beard”. Russia came 7th so there is nothing to complain about and it showed that the Europeans liked the song, but it was not the favourite. What do the Russians expect in a political situation like nowadays?
The outcome of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is very positive. With the victory of the Austrian drag queen the Europeans have become adult and reached the 21st century. The message of love, peace and tolerance has overtrumped the conservative rancorous attitude in most of the European countries. It’s a very positive sign that no matter where the people are want to show their sympathy and tolerance towards others who are different.
It’s still an unbelievable situation for Conchita Wurst. Since Saturday night she is the new winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. It has been expected, but nobody believed that there will be enough points to become number one.
It was a very exciting evening here in Copenhagen. 26 countries were fighting for the number one position. After 20 jury voting’s Austria was not reachable anymore and had the lead of the scoreboard. With 290 points and a margin of 52 points Austria made the second victory in history!
Austria is the winning country of the 59th Eurovision Song Contest. Conchita Wurst has won the ESC with the song “Rise Like A Phoenix” with 290 points, a margin of 52 points to the second place. So the next Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 will be coming most likely from Vienna, Austria.
There might be some countries already in the discussion where the next Eurovision Song Contest 2015 could take place and if the possible winning countries do have arenas to host the ESC. Here are some possible venues for next year
The opinion of the press here in the press centre is also been collected. This is interesting to see how the journalists and fans, which have seen and heard all entries much more than the TV spectators at home.The journalists have been requested to name the countries which will maybe reach the top 5 positions. This is of course not representative but a trend. As always it’s unpredictable especially under the circumstances of a live show.
Since one year there is a new touristic highlight in Copenhagen. The aquarium is called “The Blue Planet” and is the biggest one in Northern Europe. This is not only a normal aquarium it’s a very modern way to take a deep dive into the world of fish and living animal beyond the sea.
