Take this quiz and learn more about one of the world’s longest-running television shows.

The First Competition Aired in 1956

The televised song contest was originally an offspring of the San Remo Music Festival and premiered in 1956.

Only seven countries participated in the first year, each represented by two songs. The winning song was “Refrain,” performed by Lys Assia, representing the host nation Switzerland.

The first participating countries were Belgium, France, (West) Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, and Switzerland.

By the 1960s, between 16 and 18 countries regularly participated each year.

In the beginning, the show was broadcasted under the name of “Grand Prix Eurovision de la Chanson Européenne” in French and as the “Eurovision Song Contest Grand Prix” in English. In 1968, the ‘Grand Prix’ was dropped from the English title, and the French name became “Concours Eurovision de la Chanson” just a few years later.




Solo Performers

The initial rules specified that only solo performers could enter the contest. It was soon changed also to allow duos to compete.

Remember which duo was the first to win the contest?

Groups or bands were not allowed until 1971.
