History
The 1967 Eurovision Song Contest took place at the Großer Festsaal der Wiener Hofburg in Vienna. The number of participants went down from 18 till 17 because Denmark chose to withdraw from the contest and would not come back to the contest until 1978. The reason was that the new director for the TV entertainment department at DR thought that the money could be spent in a better way.The contest had a very glamorous setting: the stage included three revolving mirrors and a staircase entrance in the middle of the stage.The winning entry “Puppet on a String”, sung by Sandie Shaw had one of the widest margins of victory ever witnessed in the competition; it garnered more than twice as many votes as the second place song. The presenter became confused whilst the voting was taking place, and declared the United Kingdom’s entry to be the winner before the last country, Ireland, had announced its votes.
The entry from Luxembourg, “L’amour est bleu”, sung by Vicky Leandros, came in fourth; nonetheless, it went on to become the biggest international hit of the 1967 contest, and a year later would be a big instrumental hit for French musician, Paul Mauriat, under the English version, “Love is Blue”.
Portugal was represented by Eduardo Nascimento who was the first black male singer in the history of Eurovision Song Contest, performing “O vento mudou” (“The wind changed”). Rumours claimed that Portuguese prime minister Salazar had chosen this particular singer to show the rest of Europe that he wasn’t racist.
