Conchita is great. She made headlines in the Danish media when it was announced that she would represented Austria at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. I like her as a figure who stands for tolerance. After having worked together I can say that she is a real performer and it’s been great fun to shooting with her. I hope we have the same fun with the remaining 36 counntries.- DR team
