(Enkele dagen later op 24 mei 1956 wordt het allereerste Eurovisie Songfestival gehouden in de Teatro Kursaal in Lugano in Zwitserland. Het programma wordt gepresenteerd door Lohengrin Fihpello. Er doen zeven landen mee – Nederland, Zwitserland, België, West-Duitsland, Frankrijk, Italië en Luxemburg. Ieder land brengt twee liedjes ten gehore. Jetty Paerl opent voor Nederland met De vogels van Holland. Dit liedje is geschreven door Annie M.G. Schmidt en Cor Lemaire. Corry Brokken is de tweede Nederlandse deelnemer. Zij zingt Voorgoed voorbij van Jelle de Vries. De Zwitserse Lys Assia wint met Refrains. De exacte puntentelling en de eindscore van deze eerste finale zijn niet bewaard gebleven.

Om het Eurovisie Songfestival te begrijpen moet men eerst weten wat Eurovisie is: een netwerk van omroepen die zijn aangesloten bij de European Broadcasting Union EBU, de Europese Omroep Organisatie. Eurovisie is het netwerk waarover beelden worden uitgewisseld voor nieuws-, sport- en culturele programma’s. Eurovisie is begonnen in de vijftiger jaren. Het Eurovisie Songfestival was een idee van Fransman Marcel Baison. Dit in navolging van het succes van het Italiaanse San Remofestival (gestart in 1952) wilde hij iets soortgelijks opzetten voor Europa. Bijkomende gedachte was dat door middel van muziek de landen met elkaar verbonden zouden worden in het na-oorlogse Europa.)
