Conchita Wurst Receives Bouquet Of Flowers From Sir Elton John After Winning 2014 Eurovision Song Contest
Conchita Wurst has certainly been spoiled since triumphing at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, revealing she was gifted with a bouquet of flowers from none other than Sir Elton John during her appearance at The Graham Norton Show.
The Austrian singer was in her dressing room at the BBC One studios ahead of her chat with Graham this week when she came upon the lovely gesture from ‘Candle In The Wind’ crooner Elton and his partner David Furnish.

Speaking about the gift to Graham, Conchita, whose real name is Tom Neuwirth, revealed: “The card read, ’we love you, Elton and David.’”
She also received some words of encouragement from disco queen Cher which read: “#Eurovision Winner is Fascinating 2 Pieces of Advice..U Deserve a Lovelier Name & Wig? This is NOT SHADE I Respect & AdmireYour Resolve.”
Conchita told Graham of the message: “I was so excited to receive the tweet, which said, ’darling you deserve a lovelier name and better wig’. Cher, THE Cher, tweeted me.”

The singer also revealed her plans now that the Eurovision is over and despite the attention surrounding her at the moment, Conchita says she won’t be making any rash decisions.
“Our society is so fast so I’m going to sit back and choose wisely. I will have to make new stuff. My goal is a Grammy so my songs will have to be good,” she explained.
“I have cast myself in the role of host at Eurovision next year in Vienna. I slept. I haven’t celebrated yet.”
