It is not clear from the scoresheet table whether the rows or columns apply to the voter or votee. Mintguy

It says in the table at the beginning that Norway made its debut? Where is it in the scorecard or the list of songs?

Please remove the notion that the first Eurovisions were radio shows also shown on television - they were always designed for television in the first place.

There WAS a time limit already in 1957 as no song was supposed to overrun the limit of 3'30 - a rule neglected by Italy as well as the winning song from the Netherlands. The rule was sharpened the next year, and changed into 3'00 sharp sometime during the 60's.

The reason there was no rule for who would arrange the following ESC is simply that the first contest was considered a one-off not intended to be repeated. Only after German television staged a second ESC did the EBU decide to turn the contest into a yearly event.

Fair use rationale for Image:ESC1957.jpg[edit]

Image:ESC1957.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:03, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
