This year the voting system of 12, 10, 8 etc to 1 point was introduced. This system is still in use today, and was retained even throughout the years when "expert" panels were not involved in the voting.
The UK's entry Let Me Be The One performed by The Shadows was covered by Cliff Richard, who represented the UK twice in previous editions of the Eurovision Song Contest - he sang Congratulations to 2nd place in 1968 and landed 3rd place in 1973 with Power To All Our Friends.
