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:
HASTA LA VISTA
Belarus was represented by Ruslan Alekhno singing a song in English with a Spanish title. "Hasta La Vista" competed during Semi Final 2 among 18 other nations. The song was terminated there, finishing in 17th place.
