Nadine Beiler represented Austria in 2011 in Düsseldorf with her song 'The Secret Is Love', but only reached 18th place in the final. Conchita reached second place in the national preselection in Austria in 2012 with the song 'That's What I Am' and was with 49 % very close to win. First place that year got Trackshittaz with the song 'Woki mit deim Popo', but they failed in the Semi-Final.
