The Eurovision Song Contest 1972 was the 17th edition series. Monacomarker was unable to host this year's Eurovision as they were unable to provide the resources. They approached French TV, who agreed to produce the contest, but only if the contest was staged in France and not the planned Monte Carlo Opera House. Rejecting the offer, RMC Monaco invited the President of the EBU, Charles Curran of the BBC to host, so the United Kingdommarker stepped in to host it again. For the first time, however, the BBC chose a venue outside Londonmarker. Severine made the trip to the Scottishmarker capital Edinburghmarker to pass on the 'Grand Prix' to Vicky Leandros. However, she looked thoroughly disinterested in the Monegasque entry when seen by viewers checking her watch after the song was performed. . This is the only time when UK has been host that the contest has been held outside Englandmarker.

The Irishmarker entry was in the Irish language, so far the country's only entry in that language.

Luxembourg's win was their third. Yves Dessca also wrote the text for "Un Banc, Un Arbre, Une Rue" that won in 1971, and became the second person to win the Contest twice, the first person to win for two different countries, and the first person to win two years in a row. .

Voting structure

Each country had two jury members, one under 25 and one over 25. They each awarded 1 to 5 points for each song. The jury was stationed in the safety of the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle. Meanwhile the interval act also came from the Castle, this time the vast Esplanade outside.

The voting procedure itself turned out to be a rather dull affair, there was no real challenge to Vicky Leandros. Interestingly the winning score of 128 was exactly the same as Monaco's the year before.
