The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. For 60 years the contest has produced hit after hit, created global superstars and provided many memorable TV moments. In May 2016 an official exhibition dedicated to the Eurovision Song Contest opened at ABBA The Museum in Stockholm. The exhibition features some of the most memorable moments from the Eurovision Song Contest as well as some of the most eye-catching costumes from the years. Every Monday for the next 12 weeks we will take a trip down memory lane, looking back at specific moments in Eurovision history. We hope you enjoy Museum Mondays!
With 61 editions the Eurovision Song Contest is the longest running televised live entertainment show for which the contest received a place in the Guinness book of records in 2015.
Many things have changes over the years. The show changed from black and white to colour in the late 60s, to widescreen in the mid 2000’s and to HD a bit later.
The amount of cameras increased. The audience is not the same now as it was years ago and the production gets bigger and more impressive.
What do our former Eurovision winners think of the difference between ‘then’ and ‘now’?
