Eurovision 1988


Dublin, Ireland

At Eurovision Song Contest 1988 Agatha Christie wrote the voting part scenario.
Ireland held its third competition for the third time in the capital, Dublin. The RTE (Irish National Television) emphasized that 1988 was the millennium Dublin. For the third time in history also the ESC had two presenters on the stage (really impressive dimensions 60CH24). For deferi time since 1972 we have video-wall. EBU has brought a change in the internal system of voting committees. Instead of eleven members by then increased the number to sixteen: 4 persons 15 to 25 years, 4 people from 26 to 35 years, 4 members from 36 to 45 and then 4 members older than 46 years. Also the 16 members of each committee would evaluate each song from 1 to 10 degrees instead of the previous system was from 1 to 5 degrees. The vote was extremely exciting and the prize was literally the point, the United Kingdom to come 2nd, 1 point behind Switzerland won again, 32 years after its first victory in 1956. The CELINE became famous in Europe and launched an impressive international career since.
