30º Eurovision Song Contest
Let it Swing (Bobbysocks) - Norway
The 30th Eurovision Song Contest was held on May 4, 1985 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The presenter was Lill Lindfors, and Bobbysocks were the winners of this Eurovision with the song "La det swinge" representing Norway.
The voting was very exciting, the German were the favourites and they looked to be cruising to an early victory but, both Sweden and Norway did their best to keep up and by the time the UK jury delivered their votes (only 1 point for Germany and 12 for Norway) Germany had seen its lead smashed.
This was Norway's first victory.
