Austrian performer Conchita Wurst, who has come to be known as the ‘bearded lady’, declared the winner. She has attracted widespread praise and predictably homophobic criticism following her win. Wurst’s message at the press conference following her win: “This project is based on tolerance, acceptance and love.” She dedicated the award to “everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom.
Australia’s Jessica Mauboy performed during a break in the competition in front of an estimated audience of over 20 million fans. Mauboy took to the stage to perform her new song ‘Sea of Flags’ which was co-written by Ilan Kidron (of The Potbelleez) and expat Stuart Crichton (who has written songs for Kylie, Delta, and Sugababes).

Galantis’ massive second single You was destined for a remix package. The duo has already treated us to the Brillz, Still Young, and Tiesto vs.Twoloud remixes.
Christian Karlsson and producer Linus “Style of Eye” Eklöw of Galantis has cohesively produced an EP that captures the coexistence of human emotion with electronic dance music. The duo’s first self-titled Galantis EP focuses on the art of songwriting from each heart-capturing lyric to the playful melodies or as Linus says, “Music, not genres” – serves as the adhesive to the group’s creative vision. Their eclectic background extends outside of their own separate projects and into the pop world – Karlsson co-wrote and produced the GRAMMY Award winning track, “Toxic,” by Britney Spears. Eklow co-wrote and produced Icona Pop’s international #1 hit, “I Love It.”
“You,” from Galantis’ self-titled EP, made its way into Kaskade and Steve Angello’s sets at last month’s Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
The remix EP comes out May 26 on Big Beat Records.

After releasing the first posthumous album “Michael” in 2010, Epic Records and Sony have realised that it is a good money.. euh good tribute for the pop star Michael Jackson. Indeed they have paid a quarter of a billion dollars for the unreleased music rights, and now it’s our turn to pay for the second posthumous album “Xscape”
They have joined producers as Timbaland and Stargate to remix them, and the first song “Love never felt so good” sounds actually pretty good, with a disco groove that recalls the best of Michael Jackson and a dash of Justin Timberlake. The song was originally written by Michael Jackson and Paul Anka back in 1983.
