The glamorous Conchita Wurst, Austrian winner of 2014's Eurovision Song Contest, is returning to the song contest in a different capacity reports Pink News. Wurst is returning for the May 2015 contest as a presenter, and will also host the Green Room segment of the show, interviewing the current acts. Mirjam Weichselbraun, Alice Tumler and Arabella Kiesbauer are taking up the main hosting roles during the event.
Wurst is also set to perform 2014's winning song "Rise Like A Phoenix," during the 2015's Contest Grand Final. The 2015 Contest is set to take place in Vienna. Wurst also performed in October at the European Parliament in Brussels and in the same month performed in front of the United Nations where she met UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Several conservative countries were irked, including Russia, when Wurst won the 2014 Contest; Russia went so far as to revive a Soviet era Eurovision rival as a 'family friendly' alternative, but the notion was quietly scrapped this Summer.
