Biography

Alf Poier is an Austrian artist and stand up comedian. His song “Weil der Mensch zählt” and his stage act were a parody of the contest’s excesses. Although his result was considerably better than most of the pre-contest predictions, Poier spent several hours mischievously telling anyone that would listen that his ‘low’ placing was an outrage, that Europe had demonstrably shown itself to have no musical taste, and that he wasn’t sure if the shame would permit him to return to Austria. This included an appearance on Liquid Eurovision, shown on the UK channel BBC Three immediately after the 2003 contest ended, where after saying the above he shouted “I hate this contest! F**k this contest!”  Eventhough these statements, he tried again in 2005 tot represent Austria. He did not succeed, and again, he had a lot of statements to shout out. Alf Poier released several albums
