Who Won in 1976?


1976 Facts

Sweden chose not to enter as the broadcaster concluded that they could not afford to host if the country won again, this saw the introduction of the participation fee which would go to the host broadcaster to help with the costs involved in staging the contest.

1975 saw the introduction of the now familiar 1-8, 10, 12 scoring system, although it's been through a few minor changes since, it still holds in that basic format today.
