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:
28 countries competed in 2007's Semi-Final. Peter Andersen performed the Danish entry "Drama Queen" as a drag queen under the alias DQ. The fun track finished 19th and therefore sadly did not progress to the Grand Final.
