Decade introduction 1970 – 1979: The 1970s started with a major drop in the participants list -only 12 delegations decided to take part in 1970 due to the “voting scandal” from the previous year which led to four winners. A new rule was devised; if two or more songs gained the same number of points, each song had to be performed once more and all the other juries had to select their favourite song. If entries still were to tie, both of them would share the first position.
More and more countries all over the world decided to broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest, including Brazil, Chile, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Dubai and Thailand.
