Salvador Dali was responsible for designing the promotional material for the Contest, in the same year he created the Chupa Chups logos. Two great gigs, we’re sure you’ll agree.

But that wasn’t the only surreal twist in store for viewers: for the first (and only) time in Eurovision history there was a tie for first place. Four countries received 18 points each: France, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom. Since there was no solution for this situation, all four countries were declared winners.
