Following Conchita Wurst’s win in 2014, the European pop extravaganza will take place tonight in Vienna’s Stadthalle, but when was the last time that Austria emerged victorious from Eurovision?

Answer

Conchita’s triumph marked the end of a seemingly interminable dry spell for Austria. It was all the way back in 1966 that the country claimed its only other Eurovision victory. The winning song was Merci chérie by Udo Jürgens, who sadly died last December.
