esctoday.com TOP TEN: Those that didn't make it

by Marcus Klier 65 views

The eleventh esctoday.com TOP TEN list was presented this week. Now we will provide a complete overview and we will show you the country's that were missing out. Furthermore, next week's topic will be revealed.

This is the full TOP TEN:

  1. Ukraine
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Russia
  4. Ireland
  5. France
  6. Italy
  7. Greece
  8. Israel
  9. Sweden
  10. Croatia


This is the full ranking including all countries with more than five participations:

  1. Ukraine
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Russia
  4. Ireland
  5. France
  6. Italy
  7. Greece
  8. Israel
  9. Sweden
  10. Croatia
  11. Romania
  12. Denmark
  13. Moldova
  14. Bosnia & Herzegovina
  15. Estonia
  16. Hungary
  17. Germany
  18. Albania
  19. Monaco
  20. Luxembourg
  21. Malta
  22. Spain
  23. Iceland
  24. Switzerland
  25. Latvia
  26. Turkey
  27. Netherlands
  28. Cyprus
  29. Norway
  30. FYR Macedonia
  31. Yugoslavia
  32. Poland
  33. Bulgaria
  34. Belgium
  35. Slovenia
  36. Austria
  37. Belarus
  38. Portugal
  39. Finland
  40. Lithuania
  41. Andorra

This is the full ranking of all countries that competed less than five times:

  1. Serbia & Montenegro
  2. Azerbaijan
  3. Serbia
  4. Armenia
  5. Georgia
  6. Montenegro
  7. Slovakia
  8. Morocco
  9. Czech Republic
  10. San Marino

This is the TOP FIFTEEN excluding the semi final results, as some readers asked for. Only countries that competed in a FINAL more than five times are included. The ranking is almost the same with three exceptions, which show why excluding the semi finals is highly doubtable: As their six (!) failures in the semi finals are not considered, Estonia would climb into the top four while Monaco would have reached the top ten as their three eliminations in the semi finals during their short return would not be considered. Greece would drop out of the top ten (still being close to it) due to the lack of their very high placings in the semi finals in 2004, 2008 and 2010.

  1. Ukraine
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Russia
  4. Estonia
  5. Ireland
  6. France
  7. Italy
  8. Israel
  9. Monaco
  10. Sweden
  11. Croatia
  12. Greece
  13. Latvia
  14. Malta
  15. Denmark

Here you can find the TOP TWENTIEs for the years of (mainly) juries voting (1957-1997) and (mainly) televoting (1998-2008). As there were only two editions so far with all countries using the 50/50 system, those years are omitted. Countries must have competed more than four times in the years of jury voting and more than once in the years of televoting to make the rankings.
