November 2014 saw the 69th edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC). It was held in Kingston upon Hull in the United Kingdom after Ella Henderson was victorious with her song "Glow" in the preceding edition. This has been the ninth victory for the country, as well as the third one in 2014 which makes UK the only country to accomplish this goal twice.

In this edition however, this goal has also been reached by the Netherlands, too, as the country experienced a runaway victory with Dotan's "Home". Finland, Germany, Ireland and the hosting country, United Kingdom, completed the top five. Overall, 37 countries participated, one more as in FSC 68 because Indonesia returned and there were no withdrawing countries.

The Host City Edit

Kingston-upon-Hull, or simply Hull as it is most often abbreviated, is a British city of around 260.000 inhabitants  situated in Yorkshire, northern England. The city stands on the River Hull at its junction with the Humber estuary , 25 miles ( 40 km ) inland from the North Sea.

The city of Hull has served as market town, military supply port, a trading hub, fishing and whaling centre, and industrial metropolis. Hull was, moreover, an early ‘theatre of battle’ in the English Civil Wars (between 1642 & 1651, a series of armed conflicts and political machinations that took place between English Parliamentarians and Royalists).

After suffering heavy damage in WW2 (the 'Hull Blitz'), Kingston-Upon-Hull weathered a period of post- industrial decline , in which the city gained unfavourable results , on measures of social deprivation , education and policing. But in the early 21st-century, the city saw large amounts of retail , commercial , housing & public service spending.
