September 2014 saw the 67th edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC). It was held in Gothenburg in Sweden after Swedish entrant Lykke Li won the preceding edition with her song "Gunshot".

34 countries participated in this edition. Brazil, Hungary and Taiwan withdrew from the competition, while former French member Charlyje changed back to the Moroccan jury he has been in before. Albania also returned.

Turkey celebrated its first win in more than two years with their entry "Make Me Yours Tonight" by Mustafa Ceceli and Lara Fabian. The Polish jury could grab the second place meaning their best showing since their win in the sixth edition. Returner Morocco, Greece and the United Kingdom completed the top five.

The Host City Edit

The Host city for this FSC-edition is Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden with a population of about 540.000.

The Gothenburg harbour , developed into Sweden's main harbour for trade towards the west and with Swedish emigration to the United States increasing, Gothenburg became Sweden's main point of departure. In the 19th century, Gothenburg evolved into a modern industrial city (fronted by 'SKF' & 'Volvo'), that continued on into the 20th century.

Today Gothenburg is a modern city with much to offer its citizens and visiting tourists. The city is home to many students , as it includes both the University of Gothenburg & Chalmers University of Technology. The city is served by Göteborg Landvetter Airport, 30 km from the city, and has an abundant nightlife with restaurants, cafees and clubs.
