Some statistics

Now that the complete results of the first round are revealed, we want to take look at the statistics.

Qualified entries by year:

Year Qualifiers Entries in total
%
2000 3 24 12.5%
2001 23 0%
2002 24 0%
20033 26 11.5%
2004 2 36 5.6%
2005 6 39 15.4%
2006 8 37 21.6%
2007 10 42 23.8%
2008 6 43 14.0%
2009 8 42 19.0%

The most popular year therefore appears to be 2007. Only six songs out of years without semi finals qualified for the second round, but it has to be mentioned that on the one hand many countries only took part from 2004 onwards and on the other hand that by far less entries were performed in the first four years: 97 compared to 239 between 2004 and 2009. No songs from 2001 and 2002 qualified for the second round but some rather strong runner-ups from these years could be seen.

Winners:

Five of the ten winning songs of this decade made the second round. The ones that did not qualify were Everybody (Estonia 2001), I wanna (Latvia 2002), Wild dances (2004), Believe (Russia 2008) and Fairytale (2009). However, the winning songs of 2004 and 2009 placed second in the polls of their countries.
