After having hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm and Gothenburg before, Swedish broadcaster SVT opted to host the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden's third largest city, Malmö.

A new record of participating countries was set in 1992 as the Netherlands returned to the contest and Malta continued to participate. The venue for the show was the MalmöMässan, a large exhibition and conference centre. The stage was in the shape of a Viking ship's bow and the floor design was an adaption of the EBU's Eurovision logo. 

Ireland's record-breaking win

The runner-up in 1984, Linda Martin, won for Ireland this year with the song Why Me? composed - once again - by Johnny Logan who had already won the song contest twice before in 1980 and 1987. Johnny Logan entered the record books as having won the Eurovision Song Contest three times; as a performer in 1980, songwriter and performer in 1987 and songwriter in 1992. 

Facts and figures

  • The pre-contest favourite was the United Kingdom represented by Michael Ball. When the delegation arrived in Malmö they were greeted with the banner which read 'Welcome Untied Kingdom'
  • Sweden was represented by Christer Bjorkman who finished in 22nd place, one of Sweden's worst placings in the Eurovision Song Contest. He would later go on to mastermind the spectacular revival of Sweden's national selection, Melodifestivalen.
  • The top three songs were all performed in English which led to some delegations complaining that English speaking countries had an unfair advantage. Malta was permitted to sing in English since it is one of the official languages.
  • 1992 marked the last time that Yugoslavia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest.
