1977, Music: Eurovision Song Contest

The 22nd Eurovision Song Contest was held on 7 May 1977 at the Wembley Conference Centre London, United Kingdom.Angela Rippon presented the festival and of the 18 participants Marie Myriam won for France with "L'oiseau et l'enfant" (The Bird and the Child). It was France's fifth victory.
 
The native language rule was brought back to the contest, four years after it had been dropped in 1973. However Germany and Belgium were allowed to sing in English, because they had already chosen the songs they were going to perform before the rule was reintroduced.
First Place: Marie Myriam with "L'oiseau et l'enfant" for France
Second Place: Lynsey De Paul and Mike Moran with "Rock Bottom" for The United Kingdom.
