Congratulations to Austria's second historical Eurovision win for 2014

The Grand Final 2014 in copenhagen, what a fun tastic show and evening.
While 'Only Teardrops' in Malmo last year made the whole voting on the night very predicable
you could'nt say the same in 2014. In the end Austria's Conchita Wurst James Bond eque theme
'Rise Like Phoenix' scored a big 13 top 12 pointers around Europe.
More surprises as The Netherlands country-ballad ' Calm After The Storm' became an established runner -up, presenting a Dolly Parton Vs Fleetwood Mac style.
In fact The Common Linnets, have since raced into many European i-tune charts even ahead of the Austrian winner in some places? So they really seem to be a joint-winner and great news for a Eurovision country that failed to quailify for the final for 8 years running up until 2013.

So who is Conchita Wurst?, she was previously Tom Neuwirth-  and at 17 years old formed a boy band called Jetzt Anders! (Now Different)

called as part of TV talent quest Starmania . However Tom, decided following his continued discrimmination and experience growing up- It was time to make a statement to the whole world, and created singer/ drag artist  'Conchita Wurst', to make a statement that being different & what you look like is not important, as what is on the inside.

The rest has become Eurovision history.. in 2014,

Le TOP 15 Favorites for Eurovision 2014 from Schlagertunes


The first three entry's for our Top 15 chart- are well established artists and been around for a while. Pollaponk, have almost abit of the Olsen Brothers factor- in that these guys have worked together since school days in varies different bands. They look like a grandpa-version of The Wiggles, (australian kids pop band) 

we like the look, and tune, very muchos plus they did a Euroclub remix, at gotta give them points for that.

Then Valentina Monetta can she really made it third time lucky with,  Maybe? I like this tune but think she may have a struggle again to make it to the final. But we luv Valentina.

     An interesting concept and song from Hungary, with 'Running' I think this will make a big impression in Copenhagen a certain finalist, although not a big favourite for us. Just don't drop the teddy bear. ok?

NO: 13   ICELAND - 'No Prejudice' - Pollapönk

NO: 14   SAN MARINO - 'Maybe' - Valentina Monetta

NO: 15  HUNGARY - 'Running'  Andras Kallay-Saunders 

The glammer glitz and pure Euro Fun has begun in ole Copenhagen

Well Eurovision 2014 is here! Already the dans are proving to be the perfect host for Eurovision 2014..
They did it not so long ago in 2001, that was one of the first years that the contest filled a sports arena
 with fans and started a trend that has become common today. No longer do we see dinner jackets and  cocktail skirts as a dress code for a contest that look like a posh cheap Cabaret Show in the 70s 80s!

Australia is taking part this year, if only as an interval act during semi final 2 this is a wonderful step forward for the land down under - What next ? Dare we ask, could Australia have a voting jury and tele vote? That would be exciting and it certainly is a huge event in Australia with SBS doing amazing things.

The songs and this years contestants, to begin with  it looked like Norway's
 Carl Aspen would be the clear favourite for 2014, yet that has now changed. I personally think this song is going to do amazing things on the night. Yet I feel there is some other tunes to beat and Carl
 could fall behind or be pipped at the post in the Final , I have a bunch of personal favourites as well myself along with "Silent Storm"
 As always anything can happen, we can only hope for a fair voting procedure on the Final night, after all the problems unearthed in 2013.

At schlagertunes blog there will be a Top 15 countdown , to show our favourites based mainly on the song content as we have tried to stay clear of too many rehearsal u tube footage from 2014. As remember this is still a song competition.
