The Eurovision Song Contest 1989 was the 34th annual Eurovision Song Contest, it was held on 6 May 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, after Celine Dion's victory in Dublin the previous year. The program was presented by Lolita Morena and Jacques Deschenaux. Riva, representing the now-defunct Yugoslavia, won with the song "Rock Me". This was the only victory for Yugoslavia as a unified state.[1]

The United Kingdom's Ray Caruana, lead singer with Live Report was outspoken about coming second to what he considered a much less worthy song,[2] they had been defeated by 7 points.

Two of the performers, Nathalie Pâque and Gili Natanael were respectively 11 and 12 years old at their time of competing. Due to bad publicity surrounding their participation, the European Broadcasting Union introduced the rule stating no performer is allowed to take part before the year of their 16th birthday.[3]

The previous year's winner, Celine Dion, opened the show with a live performance of her winning song and a mimed performance of her first English-language single, "Where Does My Heart Beat Now", the song was already a Number One smash in Switzerland, and it went on to become a top ten hit in the US a year later - effectively launching her into international success.[1]

Conductors[edit]

Each performance had a conductor who maestro the orchestra.
