MUSIC QUESTION #5331

What year were the rules changed to allow performers to use previously taped backing music for the Eurovision Song Contest?

1973

Explanation

All the singing must be live, but since 1973, it has been allowed to use previously taped music. Nevertheless, until 1999, a live orchestra was still available as part of the show. In 2010, Norway tried to reintroduce it, but there was neither interest nor economy to support this.
