History

After having hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm and Gothenburg before, Swedish TV decided to give the 1992 pop event to the third biggest city in Sweden, Malmö.The Eurovision Song Contest 1992 was the 37th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on 9 May 1992.he presenters were Lydia Cappolicchio and Harald Treutiger. Linda Martin, representing Ireland, was the winner of this Eurovision with the song Why Me?. The song was written by Johnny Logan, who had won the 1980 contest as singer and the 1987 contest as singer/songwriter. The contest took place at the indoor ice arena of Malmö where the stage set was in the shape of a Viking ship’s bow with a dragon in the centre and stars on each side.A new record of participating countries was set because the Netherlands returned to the contest this year, so 23 countries took part in the 1992 event.
This contest marked the last participation of the “dismembering” Yugoslavia which soon separated into independent nations, some of which attempted to participate in the 1993 contest.This contest marked the last participation of the “dismembering” Yugoslavia which soon separated into independent nations, some of which attempted to participate in the 1993 contest.
After scoring second place consecutively (1988, 1989) and scoring some disappointing results (1990, 1991), the United Kingdom sent Michael Ball with the contemporary pop-ballad “One Step Out Of Time”, which was the hot favourite to win the contest. However, the Irish sent Linda Martin, who had the past experience of coming in 2nd place in the 1984 contest, but also paired up once again with Johnny Logan, who won the contest twice before. In the end, Ireland won the contest with a 16 point lead over the United Kingdom, starting the chain of Irish wins in the 1990s. Malta with “Little Child”, performed by Mary Spiteri, also scored very well coming in 3rd place with 123 points. This was the first time that the three highest-placed songs had all been in English. Sweden, the host country, finished 2nd last.
Switzerland sent Daisy Auvray to the contest in Sweden. Actually, Daisy had only came second in the country’s national preselection, but went to Eurovision after the original winner, Géraldine Olivier, was disqualified. German pop titan and Eurovision veteran, Dieter Bohlen participated again this year as the Austrian entry’s composer. His working relationship with singer, Tony Wegas, was put under strain however after Bohlen’s then girlfriend had problems getting her pet dog into the country and Bohlen became inaccessible. Bohlen re-used the Austrian entry more than 10 years later as the title song of the German edition of Pop Idol. It became a million-seller and was much more successful than Tony Wegas’ original song Zusammen Geh’n.
