Eurovision 1964


Tivolis Koncertsal Copenhagen, Denmark

The Eurovision Song Contest 1964 was the 9th Eurovision Song Contest. took place in Tivolis Koncert
The Eurovision Song Contest 1964 was the ninth Eurovision Song Contest. It was held in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark after the Danish victory the previous year. Sweden did not participate because of a boycott by singers. They did however broadcast it. A political protest occurred after the Swiss entry: a man trespassed onto the stage holding a banner that read "Boycott Franco & Salazar". Whilst this was going on, television viewers were shown a shot of the scoreboard; once the man was removed the contest went on. Italy's win was their first. Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, and Yugoslavia each scored nul points for the first time. Portugal was the first country to score no points on their debut. The Netherlands became the first country to send a singer of non-European ancestry, Anneke Grnloh was of Indonesian descent. The immediate response of the Koncertsal audience to the Italian entry was markedly enthusiastic and prolonged and, most unusually for a contest performance, after leaving the stage Gigliola Cinquetti was allowed to return to take a second bow. Her performance was given an unscheduled repeat on British television the following afternoon. As with the 1956 contest, no video recording of the actual contest performance is known to survive (although one does of the shorter winning reprise); however like the 1956 contest an audio recording does exist. (Videos of Cinquetti's Sanremo performance and her Eurovision winning reprise have both appeared on YouTube.) Reports say that this is because there was a fire at the studios of DR, the Danish broadcaster, in the 1970s. No other broadcaster recorded the entire show other than for the Winners' reprise.he 1964 Eurovision Song Contest took place in the famous Tivoli in Copenhagen. This year, the event was highly political and there were demands that the right-wing dictatorships in Spain and Portugal should be excluded from the contest. There was even some trouble during the contest as just before the Belgian entry, a man entered the stage holding a banner saying "Boycott Franco and Salazar". He was quickly removed from the stage though. As in the three years before, 16 countries participated in the competition. Portugal made its debute, and Sweden chose not to enter the contest. Germany, Portugal and Switzerland each scored zero points for the first time. In the case of Portugal, it was the first time in the history of the contest that a newcomer did not receive any points at all. About the winner Italy celebrated its first victory with the song Non Ho lEt, performed by 16-year-old Gigliola Cinquetti. Gigliola would also take part in 1974 and would become the host of Eurovision Song Contest of 1991, together with Toto Cutugno. he Eurovision Song Contest of 1964 in Copenhagen saw an unrivaled first Italian victory with a song performed by the only 16-year-old Gigliola Cinquetti who had already won the Italian San Remo Festival with her entry Non Ho lEt.
