The Eurovision Song Contest 2002 was the 47th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on 25 May 2002 in the Saku Suurhall Arena in Tallinn, Estonia. The presenters were Annely Peebo and Marko Matvere. Estonia was the first country from the former Eastern bloc to organize the Eurovision Song Contest. There had been worries about whether Estonia would have enough funds to stage the competitions, but they were put to rest when a combination of fundraising activities and the Estonian Government enabled them to host a satisfying event.
The theme created around this year's contest was 'a modern fairytale', which was evident in the postcards aired between the songs. This edition was originally scheduled to have 22 competitors; the top 15 from the previous year's contest, plus the seven countries that had been excluded from the 2001 event due to their low five-year point average. However, the European Broadcasting Union increased the number of participants to 24, granting Israel and Portugal the opportunity to enter, Portugal declined.
Controversy erupted during the competition over remarks by commentators on Swedish and Belgian TV, both of whom told the audience not to vote for the Israeli singer Sarit Hadad. Hadad received zero points from the Swedish audience but earned two from the Belgians, finishing 12th overall. Italy and Luxembourg continued to refuse to participate in the event. The official EBU compilation CD was released with the songs in the order in which they were performed at the contest.
Commentary as ever with Sir Terry Wogan...
