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:
I HEAR THEM CALLING
Last year, Iceland was represented by Greta Salome's "I Hear Them Calling" during Semi-Final 1. It had a unique presentation and was a well crafted song. Surprisingly, it fared poorly. The folk/ pop song finished 14th out of 18 contenders.
