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.
British broadcaster surprised everyone when deciding that the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest would be held in the northern city of Harrogate.Was the 27th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on 24 April 1982.The presenter was Jan Leeming. The opening of the contest showed a map of Europe, with the translation “Where is Harrogate?” popping up on-screen from the languages of the various countries. Then the map zoomed into Harrogate’s location in Yorkshire, followed by an introduction video spotlighting the town.
France was absent due to the fact that the national broadcaster thought that the Eurovision Song Contest would not be interesting for its viewers any longer. But already in 1983, France returned to the contest with a different broadcaster. Greece also withdrew from the contest, leaving 18 countries in the competition. Greece was supposed to enter the contest with the song Sarantapente Kopelies performed by Themis Adamantidis but the Greek minister of culture Melina Mercouri decided to withdraw the song just two weeks before the contest as it did not meet her quality standards.
The German entrant, Nicole, was the winner of this contest with the song, “Ein bißchen Frieden”.The song also cemented Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger, the song’s composers, into German Eurovision tradition, writing 18 Eurovision songs between them before and after “Ein bißchen Frieden”, 13 of which were for Germany. This was the first time that Germany won the contest. It has competed every year (with one exception) since the contest’s inception. Germany won again in 2010, twenty-eight years after their first win.
