The twenty seventh annual Eurovision Song Contest broadcast from Harrogate International Centre in Harrogate, United Kingdom.After coming second for the previous two years Germany's efforts paid off and they won a decisive victory with Nicole singing "Ein Bisschen Frieden". The song secured writers Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger a place in Eurovision history, writing eighteen songs between them in all, thirteen of which were for Germany.It was the seventh time the United Kingdom had hosted the event, which remained a record as of 2010.France did not enter this contest and national broadcaster TF1 provoked an outcry when the head of entertainment publically ridiculed the competition. A different broadcaster took over the reigns and returned the country to the contest the following year.
