Eurovision Song Contest 1994

From Academic Kids

The Eurovision Song Contest 1994 was the 39th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on April 30, 1994 in Dublin. The presenters were Cynthia NÝ Mhurch˙ and Gerry Ryan. Paul Harrington with Charlie McGettigan was the winner of this Eurovision with the song, Rock 'N' Roll Kids.

The interval act was the first ever performance of the Irish dancing spectacular Riverdance, featuring Michael Flatley and Jean Butler.

To cope with the increasing number of countries wishing to participate in the contest, for 1994 the European Broadcasting Union ruled that the five lowest-placed countries from the preceding year's contest would not participate.

Voting Structure

Each Country had a Jury who awarded 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 points for their top ten songs.

With advances in technology, this was the first contest in which the spokesperson for each national jury appeared on-screen, live from their own countries.

In the early stages of the voting it looked as if Hungary was surging to victory in its first-ever Eurovision appearance, winning the maximum twelve points from the first three juries. However, this turned out to be completely deceptive, as from that point on it was virtually one-way traffic for Ireland, which became the first country to win the contest for a third year in succession.
