    Rome 1991 - Post your top 22

    Only the Italians could have been so smug to come up with the idea of forcing each entrant of the 1991 edition to sing a bit of an Italian song in the presentation videos. But after giving it some thought, it actually wouldn't be such a bad idea if applied nowadays. It would be challenging for the performers themselves, and also it would give the audience extra insight into the singer's own vocal capacities in a context exterior to the actual entry. You hear that, EBU big shots? Tell me it wouldn't have been curious to hear the 2012 entrants singing in Azerbaijani...

    Apart from Italy's bad hosting, 1991 is one of my most favourite years. A lot of plain and light songs, I like it. Good edition

    The lady didn't do such a bad job but Toto was really a tool of a host. He kept touching the contestants and blowing kisses to the female performers as if he was the last man on Earth Plus it shined through that he really struggled with foreign languages. Bad choice.

    I liked how Terry Wogan kept poking fun at him, in a very cordial way, throughout the British broadcast. I wouldn't have been so nice myself.

    One of the worst arranged ESC:s ever together with very bad hosts. The song quality was the only thing that saved this year from becoming a real bad contest.

    My review for 1991 - Rome, Italy

    This is a contest I remember quite well. I was watching it with my grandma while sleeping at her house at my visiting and she was hacked off all the time. This is probably the most controversial contest ever. I don't know whether I hate or love it. Such a fuss, so much confusion. I was laughing so much, especially during the voting, but on the other hand, it was so annoying! The Green Room was fun. All the people were like sitting in a restaurant, drunk, having a good party. That was fun!

    Hosts: What a mess! Repeating the votes in three languages was too much. The English of the presenters was horrible; Toto can sing, but he shouldn't babble all the way through the voting. His comments were unnessecary, he seemed to make fun of some votes and didn't take it all too seriously.

    Stage: I like the venue and that ancient decor in the background. It seemed very cosy.

    Songs: Like in 1990, I was almost shocked that Carola didn't win by far. Instead it was a tie. Really? The French song was horrible; I remember it well. It's even last in my ranking. My only thought what this song is concernd is "What the heck is she doing there? Does she call the birds?"

    Interval Act: Horrendous. You have to like that kind of music and performance. I don't.

    Worthy winner? Yes, definitely. Carola nailed it! Fantastic performance, catchy song. It's one of my favourite winners of all times. Though, to be honest, Isreal delivered a stunning performance and a really catchy song that also has "winner" written all over it. Would've been a great winner, too.

    Most underrated songs: Yugloslavia, Norway. Norway is fantastic, how can you not love this. It's a masterpiece of song, the composition is brilliant. And Yugloslavia entered the competition with a song that screams EUROVISION so much! Come on, folks...

    My top 22 ranking

    1 Sweden
    2 Israel
    3 Norway
    4 United Kingdom
    5 Turkey
    6 Yugloslavia
    7 Malta
    8 Italy
    9 Spain
    10 Greece
    11 Finland
    12 Belgium
    13 Ireland
    14 Cyprus
