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:
Female soloist Gisela represented Andorra in Semi-Final 1 with the pop song "Casanova". Despite its fun approach, the entry only managed enough votes to finish 16th out of that heat's 18 competitors.
