23rd Eurovision Song Contest (Paris 1978)

Video winning song: A-Ba-Ni-Bi - Izhar Cohen - Israel





The Eurovision Song Contest 1978 was the twenty third Eurovision and was held on April 22, 1978 in Paris. With Denise Fabre and Lon Zitrone as the presenters, the contest was won by Izhar Cohen & the Alphabeta who represented Israel, with their song "A-Ba-Ni-Bi". The winning entry is a love song sung in the Hebrew equivalent of Pig Latin. Translating the translation of the title it's rendered "I love you" in English. This was Israel's first Eurovision win. Jahn Teigen, Norway, was the first artist to achieve 0 points in the contest after the current voting system was introduced. Later, the same year, he released his album This Year's Loser.
