For the first time in forever…

For the first time in forever (So how many of you sang that?), or at least in 48 years, Austria hosted the ESC. But that’s not the only first…

For the first time ever, three women hosted the competition.

And Conchita hosted the green room

 

For the first time ever, Slovenia and Montenegro qualified for the final two years in a row.

“Guess what guys? We qualified! Everyone smile for the camera!” 

“Vote for the Love, guys!”

 

 

For the first time since 2008, Latvia qualified for the final (and earned a very respectable top 10 placing).

For the first time since 2002, all 3 Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) appeared in the final. They placed 7th, 6th, and 18th, respectively.

For the first time since 2007, only 2 Nordic countries appeared in the final. Sorry Finland, Iceland, and Denmark…

For the first time since 2010, Israel qualified for the final.

For the first time ever, Serbia sent a song in English.

It got her 10th place too

 

For the first time ever, Albania retracted the winning Festivali i Këngës entry and internally selected a new song.

For the first time ever, Australia entered the competition. And as a result, it’s also the first time people messed up Australia and Austria in the contest.

XD

 

 

 

 

For the first time ever, China broadcast the competition live. I guess that was where Pilou Asbaek was going when he made all the references to China.

Which kind of explained this interval act last year…

 

For the first time ever, Eurovision was broadcast live on YouTube.

For the first time ever, the overall winner won the jury vote but not the televote.

“Can we get that microphone trophy too? Because we beat Sweden by nearly 100 points in televoting.

 

For the first time ever, 2nd place earned over 300 points.

For the first time ever, the EBU had to use anti-booing software due to angry fans annoyed at Russia.

Conchita is disappointed that this even has to be implemented.

 

For the first time ever, the hosting country earned 0 points.

And they set their piano on fire.
