Euro fans have noticed that this year's Eurovision is very similar to what happened exactly 50 years ago, in 1974. Back then, the show was held in Sweden after the Swedish representative won in the UK.

The British, like last year, did not hold the contest on their behalf. The strange coincidence was reminded on Twitter.

Users pointed out that in 1974, the UK hosted the show in Brighton, although Luxembourg won in 1973. An analogy can be drawn with the last Eurovision Song Contest, which took place in Liverpool, although the winners of 2022 were the Ukrainian Kalush Orchestra.

Just like 50 years ago, Sweden won in the UK. Back then, it was the cult band ABBA with the song Waterloo, and now it's Lauryn with the contest track Tattoo. By the way, users even noticed that both songs end in "oo".

Back in 1974, the Netherlands took first place, so Euro fans asked the question: who will win this year?

By the way, even today the representative of this country has good chances to win. As of March 28, it ranks 4th in the bookmakers' ranking with 9% of the chances to win, and the single Europapa, with which Joost Klein will represent the country, has collected an impressive 15 million views in 3 weeks.

This is 5 million more than the video applications of Croatia, Italy, and Ukraine combined, although they still have a better chance of winning.
