Wurst is set to perform at the opening gala for Stockholm Pride on Wednesday night. But first she sneaked in a performance at Allsång på Skansen, the traditional Swedish summer sing-along - making her one of only two foreign performers at the event this year.
Wurst glided onstage in a long white dress and high beige heels to perform her Eurovision-winning number Rise Like a Phoenix. Afterward she chatted a moment with host Petra Marklund - and gushed about how much she adores Stockholm.
"I'm so happy to be back. It's my second time here and I love it," Wurst exclaimed. She went on to explain her motto - "We are unity, we are unstoppable" - and her faith that the "good people in the world will always win".
The famous 'bearded lady' was a guest at Stockholm Pride in 2013 as well, but that was before her name rose into the flames of fame.
