Austria 2012 - Conchita Wurst - That's What I Am
We have to admit, we were waiting with baited breath to see if the song that Austria's most glamourous bearded lady was due to present for Eurovision (at a rather strange reveal event in a Viennese night club) would actually be any good or not.
So often, the acts with the best backstory let us down when it comes to the actual song element, but the girl has done us proud, with a good old fashioned cabaret anthem that'll have Euroclub pumping whether it qualifies or not.
So now we've got a dilemma. Austria have got two incredibly visual, fatastically watchable and ultimately polarising acts in their national final, and it's a damn shame that we'll have to lose one (or indeed both) of them. I'll bet they both scare off the nan vote and one of those dreary jazz bints wins instead!
