In 1967, 50 years ago, Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision Song Contest with “Puppet on a String” for the United Kingdom …………can Lucie Jones, this year’s representative, go on to win the 2017 Eurovision Contest with her song “Never Give Up on You” or will the favourites, from Italy, take the title??
The last Eurovision Contest the United Kingdom won was back in 1997 with “Love Shine a Light” by Katrina and the Waves. Prior to that, in 1981 we saw a fabulous and unforgettable routine from the Eurovision winners, Buzz Fizz and “Making Your Mind Up”………. who can forget the ripping off the skirts!!. Whilst back in 1976, Brotherhood of Man invented a catchy dance to “Save all your Kisses for Me”, and in 1969, Lulu shot to the winner’s pole with a “Boom Bang-a-bang……..”
In 1956 we saw the birth of the Eurovision Song Contest, held at the Teatro Kursaal in Lugano, Switzerland on Thursday 24 May, Where Switzerland won the Contest. The first ever winner was Lys Assia with her song “Refrain”
