Past Eurovision Winners

The Eurovision finals are tonight, so let's review some winners of years past that should be known to you. Here's the full list of winners since the contest began in 1956.

BELOW: The UK's 1969 winner, Lulu - Boom Bang-A-Bang. Sweden's 1974 winner, ABBA - Waterloo.

BELOW: The UK's 1976 winner, Brotherhood Of Man - Save Your Kisses For Me. Switzerland's 1988 winner, Celine Dion - Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi.

The UK's 1997 winner, Katrina And The Waves - Love Shine A Light. Israel's 1998 winner Dana International - Diva.

Dana International's win was quite controversial as some in Israel objected to having a transsexual representing their country. Dana was discovered in 1992 by Black Party 2006 DJ Offer Nissim while working as a pre-op drag queen in a Tel Aviv gay bar.
