THE HISTORY OF THE
Caffé Latté looks back on the key moments of Europe’s annual competition.
Radical changes were implemented for the 2nd Eurovision Song Contest. Held in Frankfurt, Germany, each nation was represented by just 1 entry each: a practice that has continued since. The inclusion of 3 new nations (Denmark, Austria and United Kingdom) raised the number of participating nations to 10. Each jury consisted of 10 individuals, casting 1 vote for the song they liked most. A key difference was introduced this year: jurors could no longer vote for their own country's entry. The 1957 Contest differed greatly from the previous year's and many of the changes have been maintained to the present day.
