December 2015 sees the 82nd edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC), held in the town of Piran in Slovenia. FSC gathered in this country because Eurovision entrants Maraaya could reach the first spot in the preceding edition with their song "Living Again".
After 34 countries in November there were only 31 this month. While Belgium and Portugal returned to the FSC stage, Canada and Israel (both after failing to vote) withdrew, as well as the usual participants Italy, Malta and United States.
The Netherlands won FSC 82, thanks to Causes and their song "To the River". Japan and returnee Belgium completed the top three.
The Host City Edit
Piran is a town in southwestern Slovenia on the Gulf of Piran on the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the three major towns of Slovenian Istria. The town has much medieval architecture, with narrow streets and compact houses. Piran is the administrative centre of the local area and one of Slovenia's major tourist attractions. Until the mid-20th century, Italian was the dominant language, but was replaced by Slovene as demographics shifted.
