Conchita Wurst for the prize; Malta for the holidays

Saturday, 10 May, 2014

The hot money is on Tom Neuwirth, aka Conchita Wurst, to win the Eurovision Song Contest for Austria in Copenhagen tonight with Rise Like a Phoenix. After the gender neutral Tom/Conchita had been selected to represent the Alpine republic, the Ministry of Information in Belarus received a petition calling on BTRC, the state broadcaster, to edit his/her song out of its Eurovision presentation, claiming that the performance would turn the event “into a hotbed of sodomy.” A similar petition surfaced in Russia, but as both nations are represented in tonight’s final round, their peoples will have to endure the “Western decadence”.

Meanwhile, Rainy Day is placing a side bet on Malta. Coming Home is a delicious pop/folk song inspired in no small way by Mumford & Sons.
