Eurovision Song Contest 1972, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
« on: June 03, 2007, 12:58:01 AM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1972, EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM


Monaco were unable to host the contest after their victory in 1971 so the contest returned to the United Kingdom, but  for the first time it wasn't held in London, rather the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh.  For the one and only time in their history Ireland sang in Gaelic.  With Malta singing in Maltese (and coming last again) it meant that the UK entry was the only entry in English (the last time this happened and the first time since 1964).  Vicky Leandros returned 5 years after coming 4th to claim victory.  Germany's Mary Roos would return 12 years later.  Sandra from the Netherlands would return twice more under different names in the next 7 years.  Carlos Mendes returned for Portugal to give them their best result ever, a distinction he'd hold for 24 years.
