Eurovision winner and LGBTQ idol Conchita Wurst is in Stockholm this week for Stockholm Pride - and joined Swedes at Skansen for a colourful summer sing-along.

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". 

Marklund herself stayed on top of current events by welcoming "Ladies, gentlemen, and hen" to the event.

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.
