It’s the weekly watch-a-long that became a monthly tradition. And on Saturday #EurovisionAgain came back for its October run. This time Eurovision 1976 was the classic song contest of choice.
As always, there was a new fan vote, although the winner stayed the same — the United Kingdom’s Brotherhood Of Man with “Save Your Kisses For Me”.

Watch Eurovision 1976 online
#EurovisionAgain may be over for now, but the Eurovision 1976 grand final remains online… for now. You can watch the full show on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.
However, it is only available for an unspecified “limited time”. Based on past #EurovisionAgain uploads, this will probably remain online for one week after the YouTube premiere date.
But why? Before 2004, the copyright for each show belonged to the respective broadcasters. In the case of 1976, that’s the Netherlands’ NOS. For now, the Dutch network has opted to make the show available only temporarily.
From 2004, the rules changed with the EBU taking over ownership of the rights. Hence, the uploads of contests from 2004 onwards have remained online.
#EurovisionAgain is scheduled to return on Saturday 21 November at 21:00 CEST.
What is #EurovisionAgain
Throughout the first 15 weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Eurovision Again team organised mass rewatchings of classic contests on Saturday evenings. The EBU soon came on board and began publishing previously unavailable entire show uploads on its YouTube channel.
The rewatches have since switched to monthly affairs, now taking place on the third Saturday of each month.
As well as organising rewatches, the Eurovision Again team has also added a fundraising element for various LGBTQ+ charities. Details can be found here.
What do you think? Did Brotherhood Of Man deserve to win the rewatch? Let us know in the comments.
