THAT FAILED TO QUALIFY
AT THE SEMI-FINALS
As more countries wished to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest, Semi-Finals became necessary by 1993 in order to limit the duration of the Grand Final. This countdown looks back on 45 culled – but worthy- entries that failed to progress from a Semi-Final and therefore missed out on competing in the Grand Final:
LET'S GET LOUD
25 songs competed in the 2005 Semi-Final for Eurovision. Estonia's entry "Let's Get Loud" was an upbeat number but it finished in 20th place and was thus culled.
