Eurovision Milestones: 1965

Posted 8 May, 2015, 17:00

Powered by http://www.eurovision.tv The Eurovision Song Contest 1965 was the tenth edition of the annual Eurovision Song Contest. It was held in Naples, Italy, following the Italian victory at the previous 1964 edition. Luxembourg won, for the second time in the history of the contest, with the song "Poupée de cire, poupée de son", performed by France Gall and composed by Serge Gainsbourg. Belgium, Finland, Germany, and Spain each scored "null points" for the second time. The 1965 contest marked the debut of Ireland, a country which later went on to dominate the competition. This was also the first contest with over 16 countries participating with a total of 18 entries. The Swedish entry was also sung in English.
