Russia To Create Their Own Drag Queen-Free Eurovision

Conchita Wurst wins Eurovision

After Conchita Wurst's decisive victory at this year's Eurovision, Russian lawmakers decided to take their ball and go home and form their own talent competition, free from the corrupting influences of Austrian drag queens. Said Communist Party deputy Valery Rashkin,

The last Eurovision contest's results exhausted our patience. We must leave this competition. We cannot tolerate this endless madness.

Meanwhile the country's advisory Slavic Committee said in a statement,

Conchita Wurst's Eurovision victory symbolises the complete collapse of the European Union's moral values. We do not need Europe!

Because when everyone else disagrees with you, the problem is obviously with everyone else. Rashkin is pushing for a competition called "Voice of Eurasia" which would primarly consist of nations from the former Soviet Union. It will no doubt be precious to behold.

    Actually the old Warsaw pact did have a rival song competition during the cold war; it was pretty dreadful apparently, although I should think that “Puppet on a string would go down well with Putin.

    Let them. Eurovision had been going on since 1956, most of that time without the “creative” input of former Soviet republics. I think the competition can survive this bit of petulance. However, I did like the Tomalchevsky Sisters, who represented Russia this year. Too bad they got caught in the political quicksand.

    This is not going to happen. Eurovision is not a cheap show, and Russia is not even among the countries that put more money (UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy).

    This is nothing more than some pearl clutching reaction.

    Unfortunately they will continue in eurovision, but if they left it will be a celebration in a lot of countries

    I’m surprised I’ve never seen a bearded drag queen in America. That Conchita really is an original!

    “Voice of Eurasia” sounds like some sort of parody where all of the contestants sing the praises of Mother Russia and their “hero” Putin!

    Maybe I am showing my age…but I immediately thought of an old Wendy’s ad. I suspect this will end up looking very similar to the Soviet fashion show ad that the fastfood chain used in the 1980s.
