History
The Eurovision Song Contest 1970 was the 15th Eurovision Song Contest, held on 21 March 1970 at the RAI Congrescentrum in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The Amsterdam contest is regarded as one of the most significant in Eurovision history for a number of reasons.
Due to the four-way tie in 1969, lots were drawn to choose which country would host this Eurovision. Austria (who had not taken part in 1969), Finland, Norway, Portugal and Sweden boycotted this contest as they were not pleased with the result of 1969 and the voting structure.
Of the participating singers, a number were already established performers. Notably, the United Kingdom sent Mary Hopkin while David Alexandre Winter represented Luxembourg. The contest is also notable for the appearance of the then unknown Julio Iglesias, singing for Spain. Ireland won the contest with “All Kinds of Everything”, penned by Derry Lindsay and Jackie Smith and sung by another unknown, Dana, an 18-year-old Derry schoolgirl. The song became a million-seller and the singer an international star. As the contest was held in Holland this year, and the country was one of the four winners in 1969, Dana received her awards from joint winner Lenny Kuhr.
To avoid a confusing incident like in 1969, a tie rule had been created. The rule stated that if two or more songs gained the same number of points, each song had to be performed once more. After these re-performances, the jury had to select their favorite song (except for the juries of the concerned countries).
