Eurovision 1997


Dublin, Ireland, Point Theatre

Eurovision Song Contest 1997, the 42nd in the series, was held in Dublin, Ireland, on 3 May 1997
Those who believed that the RTE, was close to economic collapse, could not organize a good contest disappointed. The Irish television has done his best, and although it did not use the expensive technology, virtual reality, which had used the NRK, the organization of the Eurovision 1997 was yet another successful event. The singer of Boyzone, Ronan Keiting and journalist Carrie Crawley were the presenters.After the shock and the economic impact was the exclusion of Germany, in 1996, things changed once the system of exclusion. The four countries that pay the highest participation in EBU, France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom from 1997 onwards would have ensured qualification to the final of next year. Besides winning, the rest will be chosen based on the average grades taken in the last 5 years. Moreover, no country could be shut for over a year. Italy back in the contest of 1997 to make his last appearance to date. For the first time, five countries, rather than the Commission allowed viewers to find the score that would make using televoting: Austria, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Natural was just before the vote to be raised for the first time a video with excerpts from the participants to recall the viewers. The vote is not hiding any surprise this time. The British contribution "Love shine a light", the favourite, won with great ease, scoring a victory for the United Kingdom, 16 years after the previous.
