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:
LITTLE BY LITTLE
LAURA & THE LOVERS
In 2005, the Lithuanian song "Little By Little" vied for a place in the Grand Final. Performed in English by the group Laura & The Lovers, it competed against 24 other entries during the Semi-Final. Despite it being a catchy song, the entry finished in last place.
