The Eurovision Song Contest 1969 was the 14th in the series. Four countries won the contest, the first time ever a tie-break situation had occurred. However, there was no rule at the time to cover such an eventuality, so all four countries were declared joint winners.

France's win was their fourth. thus making them the first country to win the contest four times. The Netherlands' win was their third while Spain and the United Kingdom each won for the second time. It was also the first time that any country (Spain, in this case) had a winning ESC entry two years in a row.
