This year at wiwibloggs we are celebrating the festive season with a series of different polls. For the next few days, we’re going to stuff your stockings with a selection of Eurovision votes. Consider this a unique riff on the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas” carol.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can join us and let us know your thoughts for each and every poll. Today’s question — Who is your favourite Eurovision winner of the 1950s?
Eurovision winners: 1956 to 1959
The 1950s were, of course, when it all began. Eurovision was first held in 1956, with hosts Switzerland emerging victorious. And, except for a pandemic-shaped gap in 2020, the contest has never looked back. The Netherlands dominated Eurovision’s brief run in the 1950s, winning twice. France also notched up its first win.
But who was your favourite winner from the 1950s? Watch and listen to all the performances below and then vote for your favourite in our poll.
