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:
The English and Hungarian ballad "Candlelight" was stopped in Semi-Final 2 during 2008. Hungary's entry was performed by female singer Csézy. Sadly, it finished in last place.
