Denmark Eurovison Song Contest

Singer Conchita Wurst representing Austria performs the song ‘ Rise Like a Phoenix’ during a rehearsal for the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest in the B&W Halls in Copenhagen, Denmark, Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Conchita Wurst also known by his birth-name Thomas Neuwirth. Challenging conceptions of masculine and feminine beauty, Wurst seems to have stolen the limelight ahead of the televised extravaganza, with a potential worldwide audience of some 170 million viewers, sporting long and curly raven-dark hair, eyelash extensions, an angelic face, a floor-length golden gown and a well-groomed beard.
