The Eurovision Song Contest 1984 was the 29th Eurovision Song Contest and was held on May 5, 1984 in Luxembourg. The presenter was Désirée Nosbusch. Nosbusch, only 19 years old at the time, hosted the show in a lax manner, which was quite unusual for this show back then. She manifested her fluency in four languages when she switched between English, French, German and Luxemburgish in the course of her speech.
Israel withdrew from the contest due to a local memorial day commemorated on the same date. The YouTube website has a performance of the song Balalaika by Ilanit which is claimed to have been the prospective Israeli entry for 1984.
Commentary as ever with Sir Terry Wogan.
