The Eurovision Song Contest 1967 was the twelfth Eurovision Song Contest. The presenter became confused whilst the voting was taking place, and declared the United Kingdom's entry to be the winner before the last country, Ireland, had announced its votes. The winning entry "Puppet on a String" ,sung by Sandie Shaw.had one of the widest margins of victory ever witnessed in the competition; it garnered more than twice as many votes as the second place song.Shaw intensely disliked the composition, though her attitude towards the song has somewhat mellowed in recent years,even releasing a new version in 2007.

The entry from Luxembourg, "L'amour est bleu," sung by Vicky Leandros, came in fourth; nonetheless, it went on to become the biggest international hit of the 1967 contest.

Denmark chose not to participate and left the contest at this point, to return in 1978.

The United Kingdom's win was their first. Television presenter, artist and musician, Rolf Harris provided the commentary for BBC Television viewers. Switzerland received zero votes for the second time.

Portugal was representated by Eduardo Nascimento who was the first black male singer in the history of Eurovision Song Contest, he has sung in Vienna "O vento mudou" ("The wind changed"). Many people has rumoured that Salazar has choosed that singer to show to the rest of Europe that he wasn't racist. .
