Conchita Wurst: My Goal Is A Grammy

Via Britain’s Express:

The 25-year-old Eurovision winner – whose real name is Tom Neuwirth – made her first ever UK television appearance on The Graham Norton Show this week, and revealed that Elton John had left flowers in his dressing room at the BBC studios. Speaking of the card which he found with the bouquet, Conchita said: “The card read, ‘We love you, Elton and David.'” Conchita added that she was so chuffed to have received a tweet from Cher, and added: “I was so excited to receive the tweet, which said, ‘Darling you deserve a lovelier name and better wig’. Cher, THE Cher, tweeted me!” Conchita explained that she has high hopes of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna next year, but is unsure what her plans will be for the immediate future. “Our society is so fast so I’m going to sit back and choose wisely,” she told Graham. “I will have to make new stuff. My goal is a Grammy so my songs will have to be good. I have cast myself in the role of host at Eurovision next year in Vienna.”
