22 Wien Vienna

22 Wien Vienna airberlin magazin 4 / 2015 Wien ÖSTERREICH Singt für Deutschland: die junge Sängerin Ann Sophie. Representing Germany: young singer Ann Sophie. airberlin und NIKI verbinden täglich viele deutsche und europäische Städte mit Wien. Mehr Infos unter airberlin and NIKI operate daily flights to Vienna from many German and European cities. For details, please visit Building Bridges “Rise Like A Phoenix” – a title that would have done any James Bond song proud – propelled Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst to victory in 2014. Vienna thus has the honour of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest on the occasion of its 60th anniversary, and it is set to do so in style. ustria is back in the big time at the Eurovision Song Contest, having risen like a phoenix from the ashes 49 years after the success of Udo Jürgens and “Merci Chérie”. Conchita Wurst has had an astonishing impact: her campaign for tolerance, lent further weight by her follow-up singles “Heroes” and “You Are Unstoppable”, has shaken up the image of the cosy Alpine nation. Austria is proud to show off its newly discovered cosmopolitan image at the grand final of the ESC in Vienna’s Stadthalle on 23 May. This year’s slogan is “Building Bridges”, and, as if to underscore their bold ambitions, the organisers are building a massive bridge across the oceans to mark the occasion: Australia is set to perform at the ESC for the first time, many of the over 100 million TV viewers from around the globe regularly tuning in to the event from Down Under. Australia is part of a record entry field this time around. A total of 40 countries are competing, three more than in Copenhagen last year. Serbia, the Czech Republic and Cyprus are making a comeback to the ESC stage, while Ukraine has understandably decided to give the contest a miss this time. The two semi-finals will determine which twenty countries can compete in the grand final alongside Austria and Australia, who are not required to qualify, and the “Big Five” sponsoring nations of France, Italy, Spain, the UK and Germany. The latter country has already provided the first major scandal in the run-up to the big event: Andreas Kümmert, who growled his way through Germany’s preliminary selection contest in true Joe Cocker style, winning 80 per cent of the public vote with his song “Heart of Stone”, turned down the chance to represent his country on live TV because he felt he wasn’t in the right shape to do so. Germany is currently debating exactly what shape the 28-year-old is in. All this is of little concern to newcomer Ann Sophie, who was initially worried about stepping into his shoes. She will now represent her country in Vienna with the song “Black Smoke”, hoping fervently to gain as many “twelve points” as possible along with the support of the German public, only a fifth of whom originally voted for the young singer from Hamburg. The bookmakers don’t rate Ann Sophie’s chances too highly: other nations are the early favourites. The Italian entry “Grande Amore”, performed by the trio Il Volo, is particularly popular among experts and punters alike. Many consider powerful, orchestral pop ballads to be setting the tone for the ESC this year. That will be welcome news for last year’s winner, who admits she is partial to grand gestures – and she will be able to congratulate the winner in person. Conchita Wurst will be interviewing contestants in the Green Room on 23 May as they endure the long wait while the votes from the European juries are totted up. The suspense is set to keep viewers around Europe glued to their screens until midnight and beyond, as the show from Vienna is lauded as “großartig”, “amazing” and “magnifique”, and the various nations divulge who has been awarded the maximum score of “twelve points … douze points … zwölf Punkte ...” • Photos: ORF/Ali Schafler/Thomas Ramstorfer, dpr/Peter Steffen, Getty Images/Nigel Treblin
