The 1998 Eurovision Song Contest was held, at The National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, United Kingdom on Saturday 9 May 1998. Presented by Terry Wogan and Ulrika Johnson.

All of the countries involved had televoting, except for Romania and Hungary.

Please Note : Due to Spain's error in their televoting the scores were amended. The reason why was that the German entry had 3000 votes and not 300 as first thought.

(*) Indicate that the country was awarded 12 Points. (-1)(-2)(+12) means the score adjustments made due to the errors in the voting from Spain. Germany has gone up a position and Norway dropped. There is no change to the winner. United Kingdom ended up 6 points behind, instead of 7.
