The Eurovision Song Contest 1976 was the twenty-first edition held on 3 April 1976 at the Congresgebouw in The Hague, The Netherlands following Teach-In's victory in Stockholm the previous year. It was hosted by 1957 winner Corry Brokken, who became the first former contestant to act as presenter - she had come out of retirement at the request of the producer to host the show.
The winner was the United Kingdom, who recorded their third victory with the song Save Your Kisses for Me by Brotherhood of Man. It was the second year in a row that the first song in the running order had gone on to win the contest. Also, with over 80% of the total vote received, it remains the most successful song under the current scoring system.
