Eurovision Song Contest 1957 - Frankfurt Am Main, Germany
« on: May 27, 2007, 09:41:31 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1957 - FRANKFURT AM MAIN, GERMANY


The second contest saw the remaining founding countries entering for the first time, taking the total number of participants to 10.  Voting was made public for the first time with each country having a jury of 10 members each giving a point to their favourite entry without voting for their own country.  The shortest ever ESC performance was in 1957 when Patricia Bredin sang the first United Kingdom entry for a measly 1 minute 52 seconds.  She was followed on stage by the longest ever ESC performance when Nunzio Gallo spent over 5 minutes performing the Italian entry.

RESULTS(brackets is the position they sung)

1.(6) 31 points The Netherlands - Net Als Toen - Corry Brokken
2.(8 ) 17 points France - La belle amour - Paule Desjardins
3.(9) 10 points Denmark - Skibet skal sejle i nat - Birthe Wilke & Gustav Winckler
4.(7) 08 points Germany - Telefon, Telefon - Margot Hielscher
   (2) 08 points Luxembourg - Tant de peine - Danièle Dupré
6. (4) 07 points Italy - Corde della mia chitarra - Nunzio Gallo
7. (3) 06 points United Kingdom - All  - Patricia Bredin
8. (1) 05 points Belgium - Straatdeuntje - Bobbejaan Schoepen

I didn't know they had whole contests on youtube.
My internet connection hates me. It thinks it's on dial-up.
I saw this fine thread today (without logging in) ,and left 1957 'buffering' while I did some household chores. I return - with a mug of tea - about and hr later, and the video only lets me see 2 songs ,before cutting out.   :irked:

So, I rank two songs. :-[
I forget who they were, but song #2 by a lady would by my first choice, and song #1 by a whistling man, would be by #2.
