Taking advantage of the pull of fame, founded a boy band, however, dissolved in the same year. After five years of absolute oblivion, Thomas Neuwirth, of escaparatista profession, he remained convinced that he could succeed in the world of music and gave it a 180-degree image. With red platform shoes with glitter, leather leggings and a dress all in black - in 2011 was presented to the quiz show "Die große Chance" (similar to "You really are worth" in Spain) and impressed everyone with his look and his performance of "My heart will go on" Celine Dion theme for the movie "Titanic." The jury gave the program at his feet and his name rang strongly in the Austrian media. Then tried his luck in the preselection for Eurovision 2012, but again finished second behind the duo Trackshittaz after a close vote. Austria, which until now had obtained poor results in his last three nominations at the festival (on the previous edition's representative did not reach the final) decided by the flamboyant artist to draw the attention of Europe. Something very simple since Conchita Wurst is well known in social networks where, besides an acid and sarcastic humor, boasts the struggle for the rights of sexual minorities, respect and tolerance. Now the success of last night reflected that undoubtedly bet your country has been more than successful.
