Before 2019 The Netherlands had 4 wins, with their last in 1975. Luxembourg hasn't taken part in almost 30 years, with their last win in 1983. It's quite impressive how certain countries can win all the time and then never in a really long time. The second and fourth contest were won by The Netherlands and third and fifth by France.

Probably because there were less entrants then, most of the Eastern European nations as well as former USSR didn't compete until the late '80s or early '90s

All I really know about Eurovision is that it helped launch ABBA onto the international scene. Still, I'm quite positive that Israel is not part of Europe.

All countries that are a part of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) can compete in Eurovision. Israel is not part of Europe, but they are part of EBU and can therefore compete in Eurovision (just like other countries such as Cyprus, Azerbaijan and Georgia etc). Even Australia have competed despite not being part of Europe or EBU.

And Australia will participate again next year (2017). So it seems like Australia is going to be more than a one-off guest entrant in Eurovision..

Israel is no longer part of the EBU as of now (post-ESC 2017), and will not compete in any further ESCs - unless the EBU finds a way to invite them back in.

+4
Level 82
Jun 2, 2017
Well, Scandinavia provided the Eurovision prototypical song ("Waterloo" by ABBA), so they kinda know how to win this contest.

Fun sidenote, the least "Waterloo"-esque song to win the Eurovision also came from Scandinavia: "Hard Rock Hallelujah!" by Lordi, Finland's only victory.

The world laughs at the USA because they have Trump. The world laughs at Europe because they have Eurovision.

The event is a joke. These days Australia is a participator as well. Yes, you read that right: Australia.

I don't think American music is absolutely terrible. And at any rate, I've heard they're setting up a Eurovision-style song contest in the States pretty soon (either this year or next year).
+5
Level 32
Dec 8, 2021
The funny thing is, I seriously doubt they would. Current fans absolutely hate the idea of the US at Eurovision and besides big names don't always perform well. For example Norway's Alexander Rybak is super well known in the community his song 'Fairytale' is super popular, his second 'That's how you write a song' attempt not so much. I would even dare to say hated on. USA would likely end low just like the UK.

It's not. It is however in the European Broadcasting Union, which is one of the requirements to participate. The only one not following this rule is Australia, but they depend on invites.
