The results of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 may have looked different had Russia’s participant not been barred entry by the host: Ukraine. Member countries of the European Broadcasting Union may apply to send a single representative to participate in the event, each performing one song of no more than three minutes. The most popular song is determined by voting of the viewers and the jury, which is composed of representatives of the participating countries.

  • Russia is the most successful country in the history of the contest based on its share of prize-winning appearances—i.e. the number of times a country finished first, second, or third as a share of appearances in the Grand Final—reaching the Grand Final in 8 of its 20 attempts.
  • Russia participated in the Eurovision Grand Final every year since its first appearance in 1994 excluding 1996, 1998, and 1999.
  • Only Ireland has managed a similar level of success in the Grand Final, claiming the highest share of wins. In the 2017 event, Ireland failed to qualify for the Grand Final and has in fact not appeared in the top 3 since 1997.

While Russia and Ireland missed their chances for the top prize, other countries have never experienced the glory.

  • Of the 51 countries that have participated in the Eurovision final during its 62-year history, half have never won the contest.
  • Cyprus is the most unsuccessful participant, with 28 attempts and no wins; the country’s highest results were fifth place finishes in 1982, 1997, and 2004.
  • Explore below to see how your favorite has performed throughout the event’s history and see which songs won over representatives of the European Broadcasting Union.
