COPENHAGEN, May 10, 2014 (AFP) – Austria won this year's Eurovision Song Contest on Sunday with "Rise Like a Phoenix" sung by bearded drag queen Conchita Wurst.

The 25-year-old performer, whose real name is Tom Neuwirth, took the Eurovision crown in Copenhagen despite initial expectations that the eye-catching appearance would be too controversial in socially conservative countries.
