The Eurovision Song Contest 1957 was the 2nd Eurovision Song Contest and was held on the 3 March 1957 in Frankfurt am main.

For some time, a rumour has existed that the German entry “Im Wartesaal zum groben gluck” by Walter Andreas Schwarz came second at the 1956 contest and that is why Germany hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 1957. In fact, the rule stating that the winning nation hosted the next year’s Eurovision had not yet been conceived, and it was planned at the time that each participating country would take it in turns to host the event. However, as more countries wished to participate, this became impractical.

In this year’s contest the Italian entry lasted for 5:09 minutes, whilst the UK’s entry lasted for only 1:52 minutes. Birthe Wilke and Gustav Winckler at the end of their song exchanged the longest kiss that has ever occurred in the contest , although, of course, only people with televisions could actually see it. This was the first year where the juries were contacted by telephone.

This year, Austria, Denmark and the United Kingdom entered the contest for the first time, joining the other seven participating countries from the previous year.

It was the first time the Netherlands won the contest.
