Decent ESC edition. Was tough choosing #1 but had the victory gone to any of those in my top 3, I would have been equally pleased since all are strong songs with Eurovision appeal. Except maybe for Greece which was a bit off the usual formulas, though on the other hand and at the same time I think she was the technically and naturally more talented singer to have been on stage that year.

I watched this Eurovision last week. I picked the edition randomly and I so regret 1992 was the result and I had to use 2 hours I will never get back to watch this :lol:
1992 is one of the worst editions ever. Quite good singers, but mediocre songs. Moreover, I strongly disagree with the result. Only two of the real top-10 are in my personal top-10.

1- :it: Italy (the only worthy winner)
2- :no: Norway
3- :ch: Switzerland
4- :lu: Luxembourg
5- :de: Germany
6- :cy: Cyprus
7- :fr: France
8- :pt: Portugal
9- :fi: Finland
10- :yu: Yugoslavia
11- :nl: Netherlands
12- :ie: Ireland
13- :at: Austria
14- :mt: Malta
15- :is: Iceland
16- :uk: United Kingdom
17- :dk: Denmark
18- :gr: Greece
19- :tr: Turkey
20- :es: Spain
21- :se: Sweden
22- :be: Belgium
23- :il: Israel (this came 6th actually.... xpuke)

My review for 1992 - Malmö, Sweden

This is one of my favourite contests ever. It has everything to be a good contest. Holy shit, the voting was so exciting. I love the 1st and 2nd place almost the same so I was undecided and would have liked it either way. Why me and One step out of time were such different songs so it was hard for me to decide. I'd probably go with Michael because I love Spandau Ballet and his voice sounds just like Tony Headley and it's so much 80s cheese, I love it. I was very okay with Linda winning, though. Michaels second place is more than deserved.

The hosts are okay and so is the stage: I like that vikings' boat. Nothing too spectacular, but very nice.

Songs: This is probably one of the years with the best songs ever. I have almost no song I hate or dislike. I can't remember it happening to me a lot before or after that again. I was happy with the voting because most of the top placings were also my favourites. Of course, since there were so many good songs imho, some of them were horribly underrated.That's the way it goes.

Interval act: This is one of my top 3 interval acts ever. I remember that so well. I love the transformation and the music. Really good dancers.

Worthy winner? Yes! Though I rooted for Michael, I see why Linda was winning. Stunning voice and dress and ballads were popular in those Eurovision days. She did a great performance and the song was great. Kudos again to Johnny Logan. Linda looks amazing; to me she is one of the most beautiful female contestants to date.

Most underrated songs: Finland, Germany, Spain
