The thirty fourth annual Eurovision Song Contest broadcast from Palais de Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland.Riva's "Rock Me" won the title for Yugoslavia, their only ever victory as a unified state.The United Kingdom were narrowly beaten into second place for a second year running. This year's entrant Ray Caruana, the lead singer of Live Report was quite outspoken about losing out to what he considered a lesser song.Controversy over the inclusion of eleven year old Nathalie Paque for France and twelve year old Gili Natanael for Isreal prompted a decision by the European Broadcasting Union to set a minimum age limit the following year so that no performer could take part before the year of their sixteenth birthday.
