History

The Eurovision Song Contest 2001 was the 46th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on 12 May 2001 in the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was the first time in 36 years that Denmark hosted the Eurovision Song Contest, thanks to the Olsen Brothers’ win the previous year in Stockholm. The Olsen Brothers Opened the show with a snippet from their winning song “Fly on the Wings of Love”, followed by their latest single “Walk Right Back”, which was already a smash hit in Denmark.The presenters were Danish journalist and TV-show presenter Natasja Crone Back and the famous Danish actor Søren Pilmark.A record-breaking 35,000 spectators attended the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest in the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, which ended with Estonia being the surprise winner,who were represented by Tanel Padar, Dave Benton & 2XL with the song “Everybody”, written by Ivar Must and Maian Karmas. Dave Benton, from Aruba, was the first black person to win the contest.
The logo of the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest was made out of four circles, placed in the shape of a heart.The Danish national broadcaster faced some problems whilst organising the contest such as the lack of funds and the search for a suitable venue. The event was eventually located in the football stadium Parken. France, Greece and Slovenia were predicted to win this year.All of the countries participating in this year’s Eurovision were required to use televoting for the first time after becoming compulsory. The jury backup votes were only used by some countries with either technical problems with their televotes or a weak fixed-telephone infrastructure. Further changes occurred in the qualification process for the 2002 Contest: along with the “Big 4” countries, the top 15 placed countries of the country would qualify for next year’s competition.
Controversy was again rife in the 2001 Contest: the United Kingdom TV commentator Terry Wogan repeatedly made critical comments about the hosts and dubbed them “Doctor Death and the Tooth Fairy/The Little Mermaid” after providing their entire commentary in rhyming couplets. The Danes were so offended that the BBC was obliged to issue an apology on Wogan’s comments. Controversy also surrounded the Swedish song, “Listen To Your Heartbeat”, which was repeatedly accused as a plagiarism of the Belgian entry for the 1996 Contest, “Liefde is een kaartspel”. Eventually the EBU decided for the matter to be settled in court, with the song allowed to compete as long as the courts did not declare the song as plagiarism.
