Best Last Place – 90 songs have come last or shared last at the Eurovision Song Contest. Over the last weeks hundreds of our readers have voted for their favorites. Each voter submitted his personal Top 5. In the next days we will reveal your Top 15. We start with your place 15: Thomas Forstner from Austria!
In 1991, Austria sent a man to Rome who had proven he could achieve a good result. Thomas Forstner had come 5th in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989 with “Nu rein Lied” (“Only a Song”) and thus achieved Austria’s best result since their win in 1966. However, in Rome his luck changed. His entry “Venedig im Regen” (“Venice in the Rain”) in which he sings of the possibility to meet a beautiful woman in said city, came last without a single point. It may have been Forstner’s blue jump suit that irritated the judges.
