The OGAE Second Chance Contest 1989 was the third OGAE Second Chance Contest, organised between members of international Eurovision Song Contest fan club OGAE. Nine countries competed in the contest, with Ireland and the Netherlands withdrawing from the contest and Spain making its debut. Each country submitted one song that failed to represent them in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989.[1]

The contest was held in last year's host city Östersund, in Sweden, after OGAE Sweden won the 1988 contest with "Om igen" by Lena Philipsson. The winner's of the 1989 contest was Denmark's Lecia Jønsson with "Landet Camelot", giving Denmark its first victory in the contest after it came second in the Danish national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 1989. Runners-up were Lili & Susie for Sweden while Germany's Andreas Martin came third. Last place went to debuters Spain, who only received 1 point from Finland.[1]


For more details on the host city, see Östersund.

Östersund is an urban area (city) in Jämtland in the middle of Sweden. It is the seat of Östersund Municipality and the capital of Jämtland County. Östersund is located at the shores of Sweden's fifth largest lake, Storsjön, opposite the island Frösön, and is the only city in Jämtland. Östersund is the region's cultural and economical centre and by tradition a city of trade and commerce.

The city was the only Swedish city founded and chartered in the 18th century. Östersund was founded in order to create a trade monopoly over Jämtland whose inhabitants' lucrative trade annoyed the Swedish crown. The intention was to persuade the local farmers to deliver merchandise to middlemen in Östersund, but the population opposed this economic philosophy, and Östersund long remained small.[2] It took until the end of the 19th century for Östersund to truly become a city, after the arrival of the railroad and the economic liberalization of that time.

Östersund is situated in inland Scandinavia and connected to Sundsvall in the east at the Swedish coast, and Trondheim in the west at the shores of the Norwegian sea. Östersund is located in the middle of Scandinavia, in the middle of Sweden, in the middle of Jämtland County and in the middle of Östersund Municipality. As the most centrally located city in Sweden, the city credits itself as the centre of Sweden.[3][4]
