The Eurovision Song Contest 1963 was the 8th Eurovision Song Contest. France had won the contest in 1962 but they handed the honour of hosting the event to the United Kingdom because they did not wish to host the contest again so soon after hosting the 1961 event. The same thing happened when the Netherlands won in 1959 and refused to host it in 1960.

One controversial thing that happened was during the voting. After Norway announced the votes, Katie Boyle said that she could not hear them and would go back to them later, however everyone else did hear them. When Katie went back to Norway again the votes had been changed, thus changing the outcome of the contest and giving the victory to Norway's neighbours Denmark at Switzerland's expense. In fact, the reason why Norway had to announce their votes again was that the Norwegian spokesperson didn't use the right procedure the first time and therefore there was doubt whether he gave the correct votes on the first occasion.

Denmark's win was their first. Finland, Norway and Sweden all scored null point for the first time. Netherlands scored null point for the second time and became the first country to go two years in a row without scoring a point.
