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:
BLUE AND RED
ManuElla competed in 2016's 2nd Semi-Final. She represented Slovenia with the country/ pop - flavoured song "Blue And Red". The toe tapper only managed to finish 14th out of a field of 18 on the night.
