Trivia

The presenters were the two Italian winners of the Eurovision song contest; Gigliola Cinquetti who won in 1964, and Toto Cutugno who won in 1990. The problem was that nobody had asked them if they could speak English, as a consequence the entire contest was presented in Italian which was very inappropriate as most viewers were non-Italians and did not understand a word of what they said.

One of the nightmare years of the ESC. The RAI orchestra (well the sax-player in particular) managed to ruin the Greek entry, which was ace along side the entry by Israel. Other faves (of mine) were Yugoslavia, Turkey, Finland, and Switzerland.

It's a year to forget. Problems with the voting, problems with the sound, problems, problems, problems. Do I even have to mention the huge amount of bad songs? The stage-design was nice however (but it usually is). The hosts... the hosts... What was she wearing? And what was he doing?

That guy who did the interval act was surprisingly good however, doing VERY fast dress-changes. Wearing a dress, and changing to a suit in just a few seconds. Great fun! Almost the best part of the entire evening.

Although I don't think too highly of the ESC of 1991, in some ways it's better than those held nowadays. The orchestra should be brought back into the contest. The orchestra added a lot of charm, even when it managed to ruin the occasional song.
