Score sheet[edit]

Hmm 2 things I have noticed whilst going thorugh things onm the score sheet there seems to be no 1 point vote for Belgium (loking at sources all the otehr scores add uo to what they shuld be), and i am getting conflicting data for UK score a coupkle of sources say 25 others say 26. Did Belgium somehow get allowed to give teh 1 point to the UK too? (Note one other source gives mad conflicating data that is defentaly wrong). -fonzy

well acording to this source i have found that has calimed to be veyr thougly checked Belgium awarded 6 to the UK which only suggests that it did btoh award teh 1 point and 5 points. -fonzy

The scoring procedure was different this year. Every country was only allowed to give 9 points. The song that was awarded the most votes in the jury would get 5, the next 3, and the final song 1. If only 2 countries received votes, the country with the most votes received 6 points, and the other country 3. If only one song received votes, that country got all 9 points.

nul points[edit]

I think the phrase nul points merits an article of its own – particularly as it is likely to mystify anyone (specially a French-speaker!) who is unfamiliar with the folklore of the competition. The phrase is, of course, cod-French for "zero points" – but does anyone know who first used it? -- Picapica 19:57, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Song title links[edit]

As previously set up, the song titles linked only to an external site. There are, however, Wikipedia articles relating to many of these songs. My latest emendation is an attempt to incorporate these internal links as well as those external ones already included. My solution is probably messy and in breach of several Wp style guidelines, but it's a start... - Picapica 21:09, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:ESC1965.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ESC1965.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 03:02, 3 June 2007 (UTC)


A reliable source has been used to detail the full list of conductors; the cite is reliable enough. However a user is changing the details for the Finland conductor from Ossie Runne to George de Godzinsky. The recent attempt has used Youtube as a source - I'm dubious about Youtube being used as a citation especially with the guidance set out at WP:YOUTUBE which expresses concerns to copyright violations and explicitly states they should not be linked. Unless a different source can be found then I think we should stick with what the current source states. Wesley Mouse 11:57, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

I've noticed that 4lyrics lists Ossi Runne as the Finnish conductor of 1965. However, in the actual footage of 1965 (Youtube videos are rarely good sources, but I think the actual Eurovision Song Contest footage would be a little different), both the host, Renata Mauro, and the commentator announce the Finnish conductor as 'George de Godzinsky', who was also the Finnish conductor from 1961 until 1964. Diggiloo confirms it to be de Godzinsky as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:00 17 August 2012 (UTC+1)
