Ein echt legendärer Opener. Perfekt arrangiert! Da waren Meister am Werk. Danke ORF!
The musical birthplace of Mozart SLAYS ANYTHING....
Truly a world class production! The world loves you, Austria! You are the gold standard!
"How much extravaganza do you want it to be?
The flying drag QUEEN: Yes"
7 years later and never beaten as one of the best opening sequences. When you wait decades to host you make sure you put everything you got into making something spectacular as it may not happen again
My Country proud of you❤️❤️❤️❤️
Left boys performance was outstanding. i need the whole version of this...
immernoch unglaublich, dass ich hier eröffnen durfte 🥰 jedesmal gänsehaut, wenn ich mir das wieder anschaue und dran zurück denke
I think the best opening ceremony of all time
Extraordinario espectáculo! Lo veo desde 2014 cuando ganó Conchita Wurst, mi artista favorito por siempre!!! 😍💕 Saludos desde Perú... 🌹
My fav opening

This is by far the best Eurovision Opening ever!!!
