Conchita Wurst, who represented Austria at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, is currently appearing on the world’s biggest digital billboard in Times Square.

Back in November, it was revealed that Google had rented out the world’s largest billboard in New York City and would be showing a number of adverts over the coming weeks. Reportedly, the company will hire out the billboard until January 2015. Later in the year, Google went on to release the names of the top trending searches of 2014, one of which included the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst.

In connection with Google’s top searches of 2014, the company have been showing images of some of Google’s search engine top trending people. Since a number of days ago, the public have noticed that a certain Austrian star has been appearing on the billboard in front of an average of 300,000 pedestrians a day. The billboard graphics includes a photo of the Rise like a phoenix singer along with the words:

We searched to be entertained.

This breakout star rose higher in searches than Beyoncé and Lady Gaga in May.

Conchita soon took to social media to express her delight at appearing on the world’s largest billboard:

Since her victory back in May, Conchita has become a worldwide star having since appeared on a number of television shows and performed at numerous events including performing at the European Parliament in Brussels and the UN headquarters in Vienna.

Next year, Conchita will make an appearance at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna where she will be the host in the Green Room. The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest will take place on the 19, 21 and 23 May at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna.
