History
Norway’s beautiful city of Bergen had the honour of hosting the 1986 Eurovision Song Contest.For the first time, Norway had the honour of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in its 31st edition. Just like in Munich the years earlier, 20 countries participated in the contest.The presenter was Åse Kleveland, a well-known folk guitarist who was President of the Norwegian Association of Musicians (and a former Eurovision entrant, in 1966).
The Netherlands and Yugoslavia returned, Italy and Greece withdrew from the from the contest.About Greece,The reason behind the withdrawal, was that the Eurovision contest coincided with Holy Saturday. Their entry would have been “Wagon-lit” performed by Polina. Also Iceland made their debut. Iceland had wanted to participate for some years already, but the small Atlantic island nation had to wait until a satellite connection to Iceland could be etablished. The 1986 Eurovision Song Contest also marked a historic landmark as the 500th Eurovision song was performed in Bergen – Luxembourg’s entry L’Amour De Ma Vie by Canadian-born Sherisse Laurence.
The 1986 contest was a first for Eurovision in that royalty were among the guests—Crown Prince Harald, Crown Princess Sonja, Princess Märtha Louise and Prince Haakon Magnus were all in attendance.Sandra Kim was the winner of this Eurovision with the song, “J’aime la vie”. Aged 13, Kim was the youngest ever Eurovision winner. Current rules require Eurovision Song Contest participants to be at least 16, so unless the rule is changed Kim’s record will never be broken. In the lyrics of her song, Kim claimed to be 15 years of age, but after the contest, it was revealed that she was actually 13. Switzerland, who finished second, appealed for her to be disqualified, but this was to no avail.
