all time rank: the position that the country and the song have between all the eurovision songs
chart from the game vote for the best eurovision song.
The Eurovision Song Contest 1972 was the 17th edition series. Monaco was unable to host this year’s Eurovision as they were unable to provide the resources. They approached French TV, who agreed to produce the contest, but only if the contest was staged in France and not the planned Monte Carlo Opera House. Rejecting the offer, RMC Monaco invited the President of the EBU, Charles Curran of the BBC to host, so the United Kingdom stepped in to host it again. For the first time, however, the BBC chose a venue outside London. Séverine made the trip to the Scottish capital Edinburgh to pass on the ‘Grand Prix’ to Vicky Leandros.
Luxembourg’s win was their third. Yves Dessca also wrote the text for “Un Banc, Un Arbre, Une Rue” that won in 1971, and other than conductors of the winning song, became the second person to win the Contest twice, the first person to win for two different countries and the first person to win two years in a row.Greek-born singer Vicky Leandros also took part in the contest for the second time and won for Luxembourg thanks to a well-planned PR campaign. This time she also used her surname, something she had avoided the first time when she participated just as “Vicky” in 1967. The winning song Après toi sold míllions of copies all over Europe, and Vicky Leandros appeared in TV-shows all over Europe. She would try to enter the Eurovision Song Contest again in 2006, but only came 3rd in the German national final for the contest.
The contest was broadcast for a first time in live to Asia.The contest was broadcast to Japan, Tawian, Thailand, the Philippines & Hong Kong. The contest was broadcast to in Iceland and Israel few days later. Brazil and Greece also broadcast the contest live.
