The largest billboard in the history of Times Square is rented by Google and Austrian singer Conchita Wurst is on it. Rumours are that the rent costs 2,5 million Dollars every 4 weeks. The reason for this great success of Conchita Wurst is that in 2014, she was under the top 10 of Google's worldwide most searched terms. Being number 7, Conchita, the winner of 2014 Eurovision Song Contest was in May even ahead of Beyonce or Lady Gaga. I also think it is time for such a step and I that she deserves this big attention for her appearance for tolerance.
In the list of Googles most searched terms, which Google publishes every year, there ist only one person ahead (number 1): Robin Williams, the big actor. Following the complete list: Robin Williams, World Cup, Ebola, Malaysia Airlines, ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Flappy Bird, Conchita Wurst, ISIS, Frozen and Sochi Olympics.
For the very likeable Wurst this happens at the right moment, since on January 11 she will visit the Golden Globes. This will be her first US appearance and many Americans will already know her by then. Some of my posts relating to Conchita: here right after the Song Contest, here a shooting with Karl Lagerfeld and here with Jean Paul Gaultier through the night in Vienna.
