Eurovision Song Contest 1966 - Villa Louvigny, Luxembourg
« on: May 29, 2007, 01:13:10 AM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1966 - VILLA LOUVIGNY, LUXEMBOURG


The 11th Eurovision Song Contest produced a number of firsts and lasts.  All in all the results were plain weird.  The top 5 (Austria, Sweden, Norway, Belgium & Ireland) all achieved their highest positions to date.   The United Kingdom achieved their lowest position to date (9th).  Portugal finished 13th for the 3rd consecutive year.  Denmark finished outside the top 10 for the first time and didn't return for 13 years.  France, who had never been out of the top 5 before this year, finished 16th.  Monaco and Italy had been in the top 10 each year both finished with 0 points.  Udo Jürgens was making his 3rd consecutive appearance. Raphael was making the first of 2 consecutive appearances for Spain. Michele Torr, the Luxembourg entrant, returned 11 years later for Monaco. Lill Lindfors and Ase Klevelund would return to present the show in 1985 and 1986 respectively. The Dutch entrant, Milly Scott, became the first black entrant. We would have to wait 35 years before the first black winner when Dave Benton won in 2001.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
