  1. Going through these so far, I haven’t heard of very many of these acts. Did they become big in Europe? Or was this just not a great vehicle for exposure?

    • Eurovision is hugely popular, however it’s very rare that winners make a huge career from it. I guess Bucks Fizz, Johnny Logan, Brotherhood Of Man and of course Abba are the exceptions.

  2. Without the song contest there would never have been Angelo by B. Of M., nor the fantastic parody by the Barron Knights
