Anniversary quiz: we have a winner!

by Sietse Bakker 35 views

In which year, the Eurovision Song Contest took place in the same city as where esctoday.com's headquarter is situated? As esctoday.com is located in Amsterdam, the last time the Dutch capital hosted the Eurovision Song Contest was 1970.

We received hundreds of correct answers, only a few of them were wrong. Out of the correct answers, we asked the computer to select three random names. To make it even more exciting, the winner's draw was done manually. And the winner is…

Amra Nadarevic from Tuzla, Bosnia & Herzegovina

Congratulations! The Congratulations package will come to Tuzla as soon as the DVDs are released, somewhere in the first week of November. The package also contains the two double albums ánd an exclusive 50 years Eurovision Song Contest t-shirt!

About 1970
Only 12 countries participated in 1970. Norway, Sweden, Finland and Portugal boycotted the contest because they were not happy with the four winning countries a year before and the voting system used. It was a little insecure if the Eurovision Song Contest had a future, but the Dutch organisation did a good job. During the dress rehearsal the stage collapsed, but during the live broadcasting everything went well. Ireland won the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time, partly because Belgium gave them 9 points out of 10.

We kindly thank eurovisionshop.tv for sponsoring this unique action! Would you like to order the package Amra won? Click here for more information! Until 22nd October, you can order the package with the shirt for EUR 99,95, instead of EUR 121,75.
