'The Greatest Game Show in the World!'
Welcome to Sweden and our venue for tonight: Malmö Isstadion! Home of the local ice hockey team, the Group C matches of the 2016 European Women’s Handball Championship and, of course, the 37th Eurovision Song Contest!
The 1992 Contest was introduced by our hosts (Lydia Capolicchio and Harald Treutiger) as ‘the greatest game show in the world!’ – we don’t necessarily agree with the ‘game show’ part of that description but it certainly was the greatest Eurovision at the time. A record 23 countries took part, with only Morocco and Monaco staying at home.
It also marked the last time we saw Yugoslavia take to the stage.
Linda Martin won the Contest with Why Me?, written and composed by Johnny Logan, marking his third win; as a performer in 1980, songwriter and performer in 1987 and songwriter in 1992.
The United Kingdom secured their 13th second place finish with One Step Out of Time by Michael Ball, while Malta took third as Mary Spiteri cemented the island nation’s best result (at the time) with Little Child.
Dafna Dekel would take 6th place for Israel and would later go on to host the 1999 Contest in Jerusalem. We caught up with Dafna ahead of #EurovisionAgain to reminisce about Malmö.
Other familiar faces include the German group Wind (their third participation following 1985 and 1987), Mia Martini (Italy 1977) and Sigga from Iceland’s Heart 2 Heart (part of Stjórnin in 1990).
There’s also an appearance from Melodifestivalen mastermind Christer Björkman. His song I morgon är en annan dag (Tomorrow Is Another Day) earned the host nation 9 points: 1 from France and 4 from both Denmark and Yugoslavia.
