Now, when everyone is happily rehearsing in Belgrade, I must admit that I still miss Austria. It is so easy to make fun of them and their somewhat pretentious attitude towards this old contest, but I would be a fool to deny that I like many of their entries through the years.
Besides, the years ORF bothered to make national finals, they always looked great and were sometimes way better tv-productions than song contests. I still hope for ORF to come back with a vengeance, so we can all go to Vienna.
Until then, let's reminisce with one of the best Austrian entries to date, and one of the best preview clips as well.
