Final night: She truly is unstoppable! And so are we! We think!

In Grand Final, International finals, Interview and feature, our night on May 11, 2014 at 16:56

Yay, fabulous view to The Green Room

This is where we  start being melodramatic. We mean, we have just experienced a fantastic week of Eurovision extravaganza, we got a winner we could only dream of and a fantastic celebration of it all and suddenly we find ourselves dressed in cotton on our own filthy sofa without a Maltese knight in sight? Not cool at all.

Europe changed a little last night. Who would have known everyone from Italy to Georgia to Sweden could vote for the bearded diva CONCHITA WURST? We believe in humanity again now. Her thank you speech pretty much sums it up:

This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. You know who you are. We are unity. And we are UNSTOPPABLE!

If there is one person who is unstoppable it is Conchita herself. Wow, we are so proud to be a part of an event that creates such understanding and acceptance. We will cry a little for Eurovision’s achievement every day now, that’s how moved we are. In your unbearded face, Putin!

Malta’s Richard Micallef was pretty scared when he saw these bloggers that have been stalking him for the last couple of months. But he cheered up when they promised not to rip his pants off.

We were of course disappointed for Malta. We think they did great and hoped they would get better reward for it. Then again, if you spend your time gathering your tensing choir instead of hanging out with your favorite bloggers in Euro Club, that’s what might happen. We also noticed Richard claiming a song about the first world war is based on a personal experience and regret never getting the chance to ask him about time travel. We want Daniel Testa and his fabulous dancers next year, peeps. Elfejno hmistax!

Denmark did such a great job hosting, but their song was all flaggate. As if anybody would like that song any better if the giant flag Basim made in preschool fell down on the end of the entry instead of only falling half down. Poland, however, won the reward for the best multiuse potential. We figure they can solve the next butter crisis in Norway, clean all our Eurovision dresses and send boob tv to Italian viewers in only three minutes. Sounds promising for the future, so we’ll stay in touch.

“Hey, do you know we are allowed to be exactly who we want in this competition? How fab! I want to be a sacher torte!”

We have made quite some effort at being better gays than some of our gay friends and have attended all parties possible. Many great people to hang out with there, but no sign of dapper bloke or The handsome family from Malta. Greece quickly became popular with us after dancing with us, though, and so did France. Note to self #1: The song you hate the most will end up as one of your favorites. Makes sense in Eurovision. Note to self #2: Favorites should always be chosen based on who can party.

Now is the time for that serious sit down talk with Greece, though. We did love their trampoline and all, but one also needs a song to score more than a few neighbor friendly points. We can now reveal they actually had a song. Only it didn’t win the national finals for some totally incomprehensible reason. Now, what did we learn from that, greeks? Never keep Kostas Martakis away from an international crowd. It is time for Europe to support the nation of philosophers and stone carved men during this hard, Eurovisional crisis. Please sign and share our petition to get Kostas Martakis for Eurovision 2015. On a trampoline, of course.

Just checking out some possible new sources of income after spending all our money in EuroClub.

We love Azerbaijan for giving us all things free and lovely. Recently we learned that they have 300 bottles of cognac in their hotel rooms because they weren’t allowed to hand it out to the press. Bad move, security people. Not sure if it is actually true or just a last, desperate try to get us into their hotel room, though, but we are starting to know the Azeris pretty well, so probably. Any questions about the funding of it all can be sent directly to Statoil, Fornebu, Norway. Thank you, Norwegian tax payers.

Lastly, we need to talk about the booing.We get that people are mad at Russia for their somewhat troubled political views in issues like facial hair and television scheduling, but was that really necessary? There’s no need to ruin a perfectly bad song performance for those twins. They did that well on their own. From now on we think everyone should ask themselves “What would Conchita do”? And Conchita certainly wouldn’t boo.

She is unstoppable on her own, that lady. Thank God, we mean her, for that.

This guy keeps asking us for cake recipes in the press center. Does anyone know who he is?

David is quite a celebrity in Norway after playing the role as the funny Scotsman in MGP. So happy we got a selfie with him!

Someone actually sang the Georgian entry on the karaoke stage. Plus for effort!

Warning! Smoking may seriously damage your health and cause a slow and painful death. Unless you are one of the members of A Friend in London, of course.

Yay, we were offered the job as hosts of Euro Club Vienna! Here we are warming up with Mozart.

Luckily, RiskyKidd the Greek got a new job offer in Denmark since the journey home was quite expensive. He is now guarding an emergency entrance.

And this would be us right now. See you in…a while.

  1. Don’t look at me for the 10 points Italy gave to Poland. I voted for Netherlands and I’m happy for contributing at their brillant result. Maybe between the polish community living in Italy, you’ll found the usual suspects :-). Happy that Italy gave 12 points to Conchita.

  2. @enrico. Nope! Italy’s italian here and I gladly voted for Poland, for Cleo is an amazing singer. Luckly, 4 out of 5 judges put Poland in top 10, so that my vote wasn’t wasted. And I’m happy that our top points went to Austria, Poland and Ukraine, for we love and welcome everybody: slavic girls and austrian drag queens. 🙂
