Weil im Jahr für den ESC keine Schweizerin zu finden war, wurde die Frankokanadierin Céline Dion nach Dublin geschickt. Sie siegte.
Twenty-one countries took part, after an initial plan of twenty-two, as Cyprus withdrew its already registered entry for breaching the contest's rules by being published few years earlier, in an attempt to represent the country at a prior edition of the contest.
The Cypriot song had been drawn to be performed 2nd in the running order. Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland.
Dublin is in the province of Leinster on Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland's principal city following the Norman invasion.
The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire before the Acts of Union in Following independence in , Dublin became the capital of the Republic of Ireland.
The contest took place at the Simmonscourt Pavilion of the Royal Dublin Society , which was normally used for agricultural and horse shows.
The same venue hosted the contest. The traditional scoreboard was replaced with two giant Vidiwalls located on either side of the stage, which also projected live images of the performers from the green room where the competitors set during the votes announcements, and a new computer-generated scoreboard was used.
The stage itself, conceived by Paula Farrell under chief production designer Michael Grogan, was also the largest and most elaborate ever constructed for the Eurovision Song Contest.
To compensate for the fact that the vast stage took up most of the room in what is really an average size exhibition hall, the director deliberately darkened the hall where the audience was located and refused to use wide angled shots of the audience, in order to create the illusion of the venue being bigger than it actually was.
The Postcards featured the participants doing things in Ireland from culture, to tradition, to sports or sightseeing. Lowney was also the director of the show's interval act, introduced after the competing songs and before the votes announcement.
The interval act was a video of the popular Irish rock group Hothouse Flowers , which was filmed in eleven countries around Europe and was the most expensive music video ever produced in Ireland at the time.
Each country had a jury who awarded 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point s for its top ten songs. This edition features one of the closest and fickle-ending votes in the history of the contest.
With three countries left to vote, the UK was well in the lead with points against Switzerland's With the third last country, France, only awarding Switzerland one point, the UK looked certain of victory, as even if Switzerland scooped the two final 12s, the UK would only need to gather eleven points from three juries combined to be unbeatable.
However, France didn't award the UK any points, and the following country, Portugal, gave the UK a meagre three points while giving the maximum 12 to Switzerland, making the contest blown open between the two countries until the end of the voting.
With the conclusion of voting from the penultimate jury, the UK was holding a five-point lead over Switzerland. As the final jury, that of Yugoslavia, began to award its points in the customary ascending order, a lot of excitement-sighs were heard from the audience to see how the two rivals for victory would fare.

Edited by isurrender, 05 April - I beg to differ. Sure, her Eurovision win didn't have an immediate or significant impact on European markets, but within a year of winning in she bagged a brilliant British songwriter called Christopher Neil who penned WDMHBN and later Think Twice which she sang a year later at Eurovision We all know that song was the the real beginning of her English language career!
The wheels had been set in motion with that Eurovision win. And when she cracked the US market in , I completely remembered the voice and the name from those two Eurovision performances.
Eurovision sure didn't hurt her career!! Maybe the song wasn't a hit but her win had a major impact on what was about to happen Edited by Xpresso, 05 April - Posted 06 April - On various Eurovision shows, the song is often brought up as a Eurovision fan favorite among other songs.
Kent - UK Country: The song is very cheesy etc, and a bit naff lyrics wise. Well at least it was back then especially lol.
The song was perfect for eurovision. Even Terry Wogan said she was the best singer in the competition. The song didn't do much for her, but her appearance there helped her career a lot I think.
I really don't mind that the song is a bit cheesy - I love it! Posted 13 May - New York, NY Country: Wondering if Celine is watching Eurovision finals on this fine Vegas Sat afternoon.
And wondering what she thinks of it these days. Edited by scielle, 13 May - CSCfan Talk to me, talk to me Channel Addicts Member ID: She should, it would be epic.
But I think deep down she doesn't want to. She rarely talks about Eurovision and when it's the subject, she always seem to want to skip the next question.
