Eurovision Song Contest 1986, Bergen, Norway
« on: June 08, 2007, 09:03:24 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1986, BERGEN, NORWAY


The most northerly contest to date saw the introduction of Europe's most northerly country as Iceland joined for the first time.  Former contestant Ase Klevelund returned, via politics, to host the contest following from fellow 1966 contestant Lill Lindfors who'd hosted the previous contest.  As for the contestants themselves ther was only 1 of them returning for a second go.  Elpida had represented Greece in 1979, when she finished 8th.  In 1986 with a weaker song (so weak in fact that she was refusing to sing it almost until the moment she was due on stage), and no Greece to give them points she finished last.  Although she was the only returnee there were others making their first appearances.  Yugoslavia's Doris Dragovic would return 13 years later once the country had separated and represent her native Croatia.  Ketil Stokkan represented the home country to a respectable 12 and would return 4 years later to come last.  Dora appeared for the first of her 2 appearances for Portugal also doing much better first time round than she did on her return 2 years later.  A member of the Icelandic group ICY was Eiríkur Hauksson who returned 5 years later as a member of Just4Fun representing Norway and a further 16 years after that he was back representing Iceland as a soloist. Half of the Swedish duo, Lasse Holm had composed the 1982, 1983 and 1985 Swedish entries but had not been an artist previously. Israel had their worst result to date. Turkey finished in the top 10 for the first time 11 years after their debut - they would wait another 11 years before they returned to the top 10. Belgium were the only members of the original 7 contestants not to have won the contest. This was rectified this year with a resounding victory with the highest score to date. Despite saying in the lyrics of the song that she was 15, Belgian singer Sandra Kim was actually only 13. She is (and will always remain due to age restrictions implemented after the 1989 contest) the youngest ESC winner.
