Did You Know?
First time that the songs classified in the top-3 were all performed in English. They were from the only three countries allowed to sing in English at the time because it was one of their official languages, Ireland with "Why Me?", sung by Linda Martin
, United Kingdom with "One Step out of Time", sung by Michael Ball
, and Malta with "Little Child", sung by Mary Spiteri
It was the beginning of the domination of English language in the Eurovision Song Contest from then on, first with Malta, the UK and especially Ireland which won four times in five years. Then, after the rule that forced each country to sing in their official language was removed in 1999, other countries would displace them in the victories singing in English.
Between 1992 and 2018, only four non-English songs have won, in 1995 (Norwegian), 1998 (Hebrew), 2007 (Serbo-Croatian) and 2017 (Portuguese). See more
