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 1984 was the 29th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on 5 May 1984 in Luxembourg. The presenter was Désirée Nosbusch. Nosbusch, only 19 years old at the time, hosted the show in a lax manner, which was quite unusual for this show back then. She is nowadays seen as one of the best hosts ever in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Sweden unexpectedly won the contest with the song Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley performed by the group consisting of three brother called Herrey’s. The Swedish brothers convinced the European juries with a spectacular choreography of their song and also because of wearing golden boots on stage. The song became a hit in lots of European territories, but is still rediculed today in English-speaking countries due to its title. The Italian entry I Treni Di Tozeur by Alice and Franco Battiato also became a smash hit in Europe despite the fact that it only came fifth.
The total number of participants was 19, one country less than in the preceding year as Greece decided not to enter a song. Israel withdrew from the contest due to a local memorial day commemorated on the same date. This year is also notable as one of the first contests where audible booing for an entry could be heard from the audience which occurred at the end of the UK’s performance. It was said that the booing was due to English football fans causing damage in Luxembourg the year prior to the contest. However, the song itself managed a pretty good showing and reached 7th place.
