    I'm still mad because Planet of blue was such an amazing entry and still one of my all-time German entries ever.

    I can see why it has been disqualified, because Eurodance wasn't something people would like to see in Eurovision but on the other hand juries voted Gina G in, so that's a bit strange. As Germany would have to go into hiatus anyway because of the rules at that time [the bottom ranked songs had to pause for a year] I guess it's more or less "fair" to not let them qualify (I'm sure juries thought the same - that it's unfair because Germany was at the last place the previous year).

    My top 30 still to come. One of the most awful years, not sure if I even like ten of the songs...

    i was expecting to see eurodance when i watched 90s eurovisions tho that's the main reason the 90s was such a disappointing decade to me (note: i watched the 90s back in 2018, not in the 90s lmao)

    planet of blue was an easy top 3 of mine, along with <3 Gina G <3 bringing all i wanted to see and Eimear. As it didn't qualify, my top 3 was Gina, Eimear and Lcia. I don't really listen to the rest

    I used to not like the 90s back then although I have some really good memories of the Eurovisions because it was the first decade I was really watching (I started watching ESC at the end of the 80s but I was too young to remember anything). Strangely I love the 90s nowadays, it‘s such a great decade and not that boring I had in mind. I used to listen to Eurodance a lot back then and was a bit mad there were so few dance songs and if there was it was a cheap copy of anything played on the radio at that time. Today I‘m glad that trend didn’t find its way into Eurovision

    My review on 1996 - Oslo, Norway

    Oslo was a hard fail in so many ways. Actually it was one of the most cringeworthy contests in the history of Eurovision. I hoped it would be something special because I ususally love everything connected to Scandinavia but I met with disappointment.

    The only one I was so much looking forward to was Morten Harket, since I was a huge fan of a-ha at that time (still love them!). However, I soon had to realize Morten is probably not the best presenter in the world. At least he had his moment when he was really funny, talking to the Austrain guy's mother in the green room. One of the best moments ever. Also, 'Heaven's not for saints' was by far the best song this evening (maybe, I'm not quite unbiased here ;-)). Ingvil was crap. This was the best female presenter they could find? Her remark about hoping for Sweden giving them any points was funny, though.

    Songwise and stagewise it was a terrible disappointment but the most crappy thing was the new voting blue screen. So messy! Besides, I was more than angry that Germany didn't qualify as I loved our song very much and still think it is one of the best Germany has ever sent. A mystery how Gina G could pass but Leon did not.

    Songs: Poor quality. So boring. The winner was okay. I didn't mind as the song and Eimars Outfit were beautiful, but I hate her voice. My favourite back then was Belgium (yeah, really!) but Sweden would've been a worthy winner, too (I'd prefer this nowadays). I don't understand how Elisabeth Andreasen came second with this boring ballad (again...the voice... my ears...) since she had a much MUCH better song in 1994 with her duet partner and came only 8th there.

    My Top 23 ranking

    01 Sweden
    02 Slovakia
    03 Belgium
    04 Poland
    05 Slovenia
    06 Ireland

    18 The Netherlands
    19 Austria
    20 Portugal
    21 Spain
