Eurovision Song Contest 1985, Gothenburg, Sweden
« on: June 05, 2007, 12:01:56 AM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1985, GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN


Sweden held the contest 10 for the 2nd time 10 years after they first hosted it.   Former contestant Lill Lindfors presented the show and provided the most memorable moment in the show as well.  When coming onto the stage to present the votes she "caught" her dress on something and the skirt ripped away from the top leaving her showing off her shapely legs.  She looked embarrassed but proceeded to unravel her top to reveal a long white gown.  Lill was not the only person to return to the contest.  The winning song was performed by Bobbysocks who were made up of Hanne Krogh, who had represented Norway in 1971, and Elisabeth Andreassen, who had been half of the duo Chips who represented Sweden in 1982.  The other half of Chips was Kikki Danielsson who represented Sweden as a solo artist in 1985.  Wind represented Germany for the first of 3 appearances.  Izhar Cohen returned 7 years after his victory.  Al Bano & Romina Power returned for Italy after a 9 year gap and once again finished 7th.  Gary Lux made the first of 2 consecutive appearances for Austria.  Hot Eyes were back for Denmark, and Mariella Farre returned for Switzerland this time accompanied by Pino Gasparini.  Ireen Sheer came back for a third time and was joined by 5 others to form the internationals.  MFO appeared for the first of their 2 entries for Turkey.  Lia Vissi represented Cyprus as her sister Anna had 3 years previously.
