Originally created to bring the nations of Europe together after the Second World War, the contest has produced singers and groups who endure to this day, as well as creating its own brand of Euro-Speak song titles which transcend language barriers.
The very first edition of the European Song Contest took place on the 24th of May in 1956 at the Teatro Kursaal in Lugano, Switzerland.
Seven countries took part, each performing two songs by different singers, except Switzerland and Luxembourg for which both songs were performed by the same act.
Lys Assia won the first contest for Switzerland with the song “Refrain” and instantly became song contest royalty. She took part in the 2005 event to celebrate 50 years of the contest, “Congratulations”, along with previous acts Massiel and Cliff Richard.
