Eurovision on French-Wiki[edit]

I am short of information on the Eurovision song contest winners in the French language.

There is no shortage of lists of winners and more lists but what I would like please is more biographical information on Frida Boccara, Isabelle Aubret, Andre Claveau, Marie Myriam, Lys Assia. I have a certain amount but would like more.

I have an LP of the winnings songs of this time but there is nothing for Andre cleaveau.

Thanks Carol of Reading

If the tie break rule...[edit]

"If the tie break rule had been in place then the Netherlands would have won with its 6 points from France.

This statement was determined using an obsolete tie break rule. The tie is no longer broken by determining which country received the highest set of points. Now, a tie is broken by determing which country received votes from the greatest number of countries. If two (or more) countries are still tied, then the tie is broken by determining which country received set of points. Therefore...

Spain received points from nine countries, United Kingdom received points from eight countries, Netherlands received points from seven countries, and France received points from nine countries. At this point, United Kingdom and Netherlands would be eliminated, but Spain and France would still be tied. Looking at the individual sets of points, France received two sets of four points, whereas Spain received zero sets of four points. Therefore, if the most current tie break rule had been used, France would have won the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest. I am going to change the that sentence.

I clarified the tie-break rule on the main page, but I'm not sure if my wording is understandable by everyone. Could somebody please check this? Thanks. Kumorifox (talk) 16:39, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Deleted text[edit]

I've deleted the following text as it is obviously very badly translated, assuming it means anything at all: (it acted of a joke of comic French ; Jacques Martin) Jon Rob 13:00, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Not correct[edit]

The story about Liechtenstein wanting to participate in 1969 is not true.

The song "Un beau matin" is a hoax, a parody of your typical Eurovision entry, and has no link neither to the contest nor Liechtenstein apart from the sleeve naming it "The official entry of Liechtenstein at the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest".

Liechtenstein DID try to enter the contest in 1976 and were denied access due to the reasons quoted here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tobsonhelsinki (talkcontribs) 17:21, 8 March 2007 (UTC).

I seem to agree. Check the title; it's French. If Liechtenstein had wanted to participate for real, they would have had to submit a song in German, as a national language rule was then in effect. (talk) 22:37, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:ESC1969.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ESC1969.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.

Exceptional color broadcast[edit]

Apprently this was an exceptional color broadcast as TVE introduced regular color broadcasts only in 1975. Does anyone have more information about this issue? DrorK (talk) 01:18, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

They borrowed equipment from other countries while Spain itself couldn't watch it in color. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ajitirj (talkcontribs) 13:16, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Update: They borrowed it from the ARD an the information is in the "Trivia" section. --Ajitirj (talk) 14:30, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
