Talk:History of the Eurovision Song Contest

This article needs to be completely re-written. Following my successful re-write of the main Eurovision article, these sub-articles need the same treatment. Does anyone else want to lend a hand, or is up to me? EuroSong talk 15:31, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

European Countries That Have Not Appeared[edit]

I'm going to edit "Liechtenstein is the only European country not to have participated, the Czech Republic made its debut in the 2007 contest." as San Marino and Vatican City have also not taken part. And do the Faroe Islands count as a country or are they a dependancy?--gottago 16:46, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Faroe Islands belong to Denmark as much as Isle of Man belongs to United Kingdom and Kaliningrad to Russia. User:Haettman1986 —Preceding comment was added at 19:41, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

The result was merge into History of the Eurovision Song Contest. -- Chwech 23:29, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm proposing that List of Eurovision Song Contest editions be merged into this article. There is no text in that article; all it includes is a table which could be very easily incoporated into this article and would probably be more effective here. My thinking behind this is that if there was a lead added to the list article, it would essentially be the same as the one at this article. Apart from the links coming from {{Eurovision Years}}, List of Eurovision Song Contest editions is an orphan article, as far as I can see. Thanks. Chwech 13:33, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

I support the merge for the above stated reasons. Grk1011 (talk) 21:51, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Just to clarify - I've basically copied the table from the list of editions to this article, replacing the competition history one here. There is a better list of winners at Eurovision Song Contest winners, so I've added a seealso hatline linking to that. The only other item that is not accounted for is the songwriters, but the consensus from other Eurovision articles seems to be that they are only mentioned in the articles about the songs themselves.

"Well-known performers"[edit]

Unless you can objectively define "well-known performers", that list is POV. --Dweller (talk) 10:03, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

SVT didn't even exist in 1975. Where did you get this information from? Are you kidding me? This is absolutely not true that SVT hosted Eurovision in 1975. Totally impossible, as Swedish Radio Services was in charge. SVT was introduced several years later as a result to make public service more effective in order to fulfil the new governments wishes. You don't even have a source —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:54, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
