Conchita Wurst Greeted by Fans in Austria After Eurovision Win!

Conchita Wurst proudly shows off her trophy while attending a press conference at the airport after winning the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest on Sunday (May 11) in Vienna, Austria.

The 25-year-old singer was greeted by fans and the press upon arriving home in Austria following the big competition, which was held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Conchita beat out singers from 36 other countries in Europe to win the competition. She received 290 points while the second place winner only got 238.

“Yesterday was a victory not just for me, but also for those people who believe in a future that functions without discrimination and which is based on tolerance and respect,” she said. “That was transnational and had nothing to with east and west.”

    Congratulations to Conchita for winning. I hope she will stand up as a symbol for more tolerance.

  • kel

  • killmenow

    WTF!!!!

  • Alexandra

    Am I the only one who finds this gross? I mean I am really a tolerant person, but this just looks too weird.

  • K

    What’s wrong with him/her?? Gross & weird!!

  • sj

    no. you can be tolerate as hell. but this. is just wrong. and really gross

  • A HE

    You mean a he? I’m sure he has diiiiiiiiiiiick baby!!! If I saw him going into the female bathroom I would start looking around to see if I was in the wrong place!!

  • Anyone

    take off this posting..caouldnt you find decent news to post

  • James

    People, you don’t understand. First this is from Europe, which means this is a little bit different from USA. We are more tolerant just because every nation in here is little different and we live next to each other. And second: this is a singing competition. And the craziness about Conchita comes just from the fact that we are incredibly proud we are able to skip prejudice and let win the one who sings best no matter who it is, how looks like, what gender is…that’s all. It’s a celebration of tolerance not a celebration of transgender people or any other deviations. This ladyboy is who he is and he doesn’t hurt anyone. So there is no reason to hate him. Let him live his life in the way he wants…

  • Bella

    @Alexandra: Well th moment you made the effort to say “that is gross” you made yourself implausible. So no, you are not tolerant.

  • Bella

    Wow many dicks running around here too.

  • raf

    @Marina: Enough with the liberty and the tolerance and all that! This is not a woman,not a man,not a gay nor trans.This is something else,it is just anomaly..You want to be a man and a woman at the same time??Mercy people…Liberty has it’s limits!GROSS

  • SAART

    His name is Thomas Neuwirth and he is gay in womens cloths
    Nothing special about him
    Tolerant? Who?
    That is FAAAAAR to long for normal people

  • Fernando Schiavi

    This guy/girl is horrible

  • Jaze

    You people are hilarious, why does this bother you so much? Is she hurting anyone? it does seem like the americans have a long way to go in way of tolerance compared to the europeans. Believe me, we have some bigoted and ignorant people too, but the comments here are just plain funny and stupid . I´m looking at you raf, “liberty has it´s limits” LOL, so is liberty you deciding who gets to wear what? :D

  • Em

    This was a fabulous singer, a memorable Eurovision song and clearly the majority of Europe and surrounding countries agree…you are never going to please everyone, and there are a lot of intolerant people (even though they claim they aren’t) but if Conchita can improve the visibility of LGBT at the same time and open peoples eyes then good for her, I mean come on it’s a gay man who likes to dress up in drag…get over it!!! I’m proud we (UK) gave her the full 12 points, a well deserved winner and I will be booking my trip to Austria next year to see her, well done!!

  • WAIT?! WHAT?

    Ummmmmm….. What is this thing that has come to earth? I’ve never seen this particular type of species on earth. Did the government mistakenly let something go? Someone please, the world deserves to know what this thing is…

  • marc

    @James: Well said. Agreed!

  • Machonorski

    You can change your looks, but you can’t change your DNA. “He’s a MAN, baby!!”

  • @kel

    She really does look just like Guiliana Rancic.

  • Matt

    @Machonorski: Your gender has absolutely nothing to do with your DNA.

  • Guest

    He looks ridiculous

  • ROACH!

    QUICK! SOMEONE GET A SHOES AND KILL IT! HURRY BEFORE IT GETS AWAY!

  • FRAUD !!!!
  • Rita
