Eurovision Song Contest 1987, Brussels, Belgium
« on: June 09, 2007, 12:23:44 AM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1987, BRUSSELS, BELGIUM


The only contest to be held in Belgium was historic for quite a few reasons.  Johnny Logan returned to the contest 7 years after his victory in The Hague and did exactly the same thing again....scored a victory with Germany in 2nd place.  The 2nd place was historic in itself with Wind returning 2 years after coming 2nd in Gothenburg, albeit with some personnel changes.  It was the first (and to date only) time that the top 2 places were taken by 2 artists who had previously finished in the same position.  The only other returning artist was Austria's Gary Lux who fared a lot worse than he had done 2 year's previously.  The United Kingdom finished outside of the top 10 for only the 2nd time and had it's lowest position to date.  70's punk star Plastic Bertrand tried to resurrect his career by representing Luxembourg and failed miserably.  Turkey scored their 2nd 0 points in 4 years.  Sweden had to change the title of their song as the original title had "Coca-Cola" in it and the EBU did not approve.
