Eurovision Song Contest 1975, Stockholm, Sweden
« on: June 03, 2007, 04:05:26 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1975, STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN


The major talking point of the 1975 contest was the new voting system, which is still in use today.  A jury of 10 members were required to give votes to their 10 favourite songs, giving 12 to their favourite, 10 to their 2nd favourite then 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 to their remaining 8 favourites. For the record the first country to receive 12 points were Luxembourg. As for the songs there really isn't much to note really.  The winner remains the highest scoring entry for the Netherlands.  Malta returned for a last go before disappearing for 16 years.  Turkey made an inauspicious debut finishing last.  The UK finished 2nd despite Bruce Welch forgetting the second line of the song and stating "I knew it!".  Ellen Nikolaysen was performing for Norway for the 3rd consecutive year (albeit the 2 previous years as a member of The Bendik Singers).
