Eurovision Song Contest: Time Machine Flashback 1960. Wyn Loop
While in Eurovision 2016 we seem to have a bumper year for the male vocalist, back in the early Eurovision Song Contests they were not so common at all. Although this changed
in London at Eurovision Song Contest 1960 when Germany sent one of the best vocalist to date with Wyn Loop (Winfried Lüssenhop) Lyn was one of 8 male singers. Wyn had an impressive vocal and sung a german tune with a french title "Bonne Nuit Ma Cherie" and was the eleventh song in a competiion of 13 entries. So the male singers actually out numbered the girls in 1960, while the winner was female -Jacqueline Boyer singing 'Tom Pillibi' from France won. I think Lyn Loop was worthy of a better placing than equal 4th place back in London, 1960.
