LUXEMBOURG 1962

The 1962 Eurovision Song Contest was held in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for the first time with another winning song sung in French by Isabelle Aubret, who would come back to the contest for 6 years later. After the victory in Cannes in 1961, Luxembourg was the host of the seventh Eurovision Song Contest. The stage was decorated with twinkling stars, but unfortunately they could not be seen for parts of the evening because there were some problems with the lights in the big auditorium of the Villa Louvigny.

The number of participants of this year’s contest remained stable at 16 with no new countries entering. However, there was a change in the voting system: the national juries – which still consisted of 10 persons – had to attribute 3, 2 and 1 points to their three favourite songs. France managed to win the Eurovision Song Contest for the third time with a dramatic performance by Isabelle Aubret who won by a landslide: Aubret collected 26 points altogether, outclassing Monaco’s entry Dis Rien by 13 points!
