Jurgens came in to the music industry in 1950, which makes his music career well over 50 years old. What became the reason of his entry in the music industry was a contest that was organized by ORF, which is an Austrian Public Broadcasting channel, in 1950.

With his song Warum nur warum?, Udo Jurgens took part in the Eurovision Song Contest, while representing Austria for the first time. Although Jurgens finished fifth in the contest but still his song left a strong mark on the listeners, which is why Matt Monro, who also participated in the contest while representing UK, was so touched by the song that he released a cover of Jurgens song with English lyrics written by Don Black and the song was titled Walk Away.
The song did fairly well in on UK music charts as it peaked at #4 spot, while in US music charts it took the #23 spot. The following year, Jurgens took part in the contest yet again, and this time he participated with his song titled Sag ihr, ich lass sie gru?en, which in English means Tell Her I Send my Regards.
Out of 18 songs that were performed in the contest, his song took the 4th spot after he received 16 points. Apart from being sung in German by Jurgens, the song was also translated and performed in Italian and Spanish as well. Sag ihr, ich lass sie gru?en was re-recorded and re-released in 1972 and 1996 in German.
The very next year, Jurgens entered the Eurovision Song Contest yet again and represented Austria once again with his song titled Merci, Cherie which means Thank you, Darling in English.
This year Jurgens won the contest with his song, which is, till today, the only win brought to Austria in the contest. Merci, Cherie later was interpreted in English language by Vince Hall, and easily became an English Language hit as well.
