INNSBRUCK, AUSTRIA – Hours ago, Conchita Wurst was in Innsbruck for a short visit and a performance. She was given a tour of the city by the mayor Christine Oppitz-Plörer and pleased the audience with “Rise Like A Phoenix”.
This piece of news doesn’t seem that interesting unless you keep in mind that Tyrol’s capital city is a strong contender for the hosting of the Jubilee Contest next year. Indeed, the fourth largest city of Austria is still in the race versus Vienna and Graz. Some already say that this twice-Olympic city could be ORF’s secret favourite for the contest, and that Olympia World could be our next venue.
During her Tyrolean day, Conchita was interviewed, and of course the question was asked “Which host city would you prefer?”. The bearded diva gave a very diplomatic answer expressing absolutely no preference.
Imperial Vienna, provincial Graz or Olympic Innsbruck…? We are all waiting for ORF’s decision.
