January 2016 sees the 83rd edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC), held in the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands - thanks to Causes and their song "To the River" who won the preceding edition.

31 countries participated in this edition, the same number as in December 2015. Actually all the juries who joined FSC 82 were also present in January 2016.

Estonia won FSC 83 - exactly 20 editions after their last victory in FSC 63. Just like then the artist of the winning entry was Grete Paia, whose song "Püüame droone" won with a margin of 24 points. Grete Paia thus became the fourth artist to win FSC twice, after Tom Dice, Within Temptation and Ella Henderson. Russia earned the silver medal while Sweden placed third. On the other side of the table the Philippines again only escaped the last place "thanks" to two non-voters: Belgium and Slovenia (that were subsequently moved down the scoreboard).

The Host City Edit

Utrecht is the capital and most populous city in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern corner of the Randstad conurbation and is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands with a population of 330,772 in 2014.

Utrecht's ancient city centre features many buildings and structures several dating as far back as the High Middle Ages. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the 8th century. It lost the status of prince-bishopric but remains the main religious center in the country. Utrecht was the most important city in the Netherlands until the Dutch Golden Age, when it was succeeded by Amsterdam as the country's cultural centre and most populous city.

Utrecht is host to Utrecht University, the largest university in the Netherlands, as well as several other institutes for higher education. Due to its central position within the country, it is an important transport hub for both rail and road transport. It has the second highest number of cultural events in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam. In 2012,The Lonely Planet included Utrecht in the top 10 of the world’s unsung places.
