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.”
