The Eurovision Song Contest 1964 was the ninth Eurovision Song Contest. 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. Image File history File links ESC1964. ...

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 Grönloh was of Indonesian descent. It would take until 1966 before the first black singer, Milly Scott also of the Netherlands, would appear on Eurovision stage. Milly was born and raised in Suriname.


As with the 1956 contest, no video recording of this contest is known to survive; again like the 1956 contest, an audio recording does exist. (Edit on 28 March 2007: videos of Gigliola's performances at both San Remo and Eurovision are now available 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. Danmarks Radio (normally referred to as just DR) is Denmarks national broadcasting corporation. ...

Eurovision Song Contest: Information from Answers.com (6850 words)
The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual competition held between active member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), in which participating countries each submit a song to be performed on live television; then proceed to cast votes for the other countries' songs, in order to find the most popular song in the competition.
Countries may select their songs by any means they wish: whether it be an internal decision made by the participating broadcaster, or a public contest which allows the country's public to televote between several songs.
The impact that the Contest has on the host city is inversely proportional to its size: in Riga 2003, the city centre was virtually taken over by Eurovision delegates as they spent their week in the Latvian capital.
Eurovision Song Contest (1015 words)
Eurovision is the television network supervised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), and was established in the early 1950s to serve two functions: to share the costs of programming with international interest between the broadcasting services of member nations, and to promote cultural appreciation and identification throughout western Europe.
The Eurovision Song Contest is a long, live Saturday evening showcase of pop music talent that typically ranges from the indescribably bad, through the insufferably indifferent, to a few catchy little numbers.
In estimating the significance of the Eurovision Song Contest, perhaps less attention should be given to its bloated festivity or the derivative nature of the contenders' music.
