Episode Content: We are happy to announce that broadcaster NOS has made available the Eurovision Song Contest 1976! This show is available for a limited time only. Tweet along using #EurovisionAgain For the third time in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest, the Netherlands organised the musical highlight of the year. After having hosted the event in Hilversum and Amsterdam, The Hague was chosen as host city for the 1976 event. After being host of the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest, Sweden withdrew from the contest as Swedish TV thought that the contest had become too commercial. They were also afraid of winning again and having to host the expensive show so soon. Turkey and Malta withdrew as well, but Greece and Austria returned. 18 countries participated in the 1976 song contest altogether. Former Dutch Eurovision Song Contest winner Corry Brokken hosted the contest. The orchestra rules changed this year. For the first time, instrumental playback was allowed if certain passages in the music could not be reproduced by the live orchestra. Most of the countries decided to sing in English hoping that they might earn a better placing with this. The Yugoslav entry was sung by Ambassadori and it marked the last Yugoslav entry for five years - the country would only come back in 1981. #StayHome #WithMe - If you want to know more about the Eurovision Song Contest, visit https://eurovision.tv Shop the official Eurovision Song Contest merchandise: https://shop.eurovision.tv/ Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/eurovision Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Eurovision Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EurovisionSongContest/
