Every single Eurovision Semi Final non qualifier song of the decade - ranked by percentage



We previously looked at the Top 20 and Bottom 20 Grand Final Eurovision songs of the decade including the full ranking of the grand final songs which can be found here.

Continuing on with our articles covering the best and worst of the Eurovision decade (2010-2019), today we look at the full ranking of Semi Final non qualifier songs of the decade, yes all 149 entries!


We have compiled the list of the best to worst Eurovision non qualifier songs ranked by the percentage of their possible total score.


Over the last decade Latvia and North Macedonia were the only two countries with the most non qualifier entries with eight. Unfortunately for Latvia they managed to get the wooden spoon three times. In comparison North Macedonia resulted better with their non qualifier entries.


Several countries including some Eurovision powerhouses managed to get a single non qualifier entry over the last decade, they include Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkey, Sweden, Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Let the non qualifier Eurovision songs list begin!


Correction: Thanks to Aussievision contributor Aaron the list has been corrected to include the separate jury/televote scoring 2016-2019 which changed the results of this list!


1. Anna Bergendahl - This Is My Life - Sweden - 11th place in 2010 - SF2 - 28.7% (62 points out of 216 - average score 3.44 points)

Anna Bergendahl’s “This Is My Life” is Sweden’s first and only Grand Final absence in Eurovision history. She surprisingly takes top spot as most successful non qualifier with high percentage of total possible points. Sweden missed out on the Grand Final by only five points. Regardless Anna managed to top the Swedish charts for four weeks with the song.


2. Tulia - Fire of Love (Pali się) - Poland - 11th place in 2019 - SF1 - 26.32% (120 points out of 456 - average score 3.16 points)

One of the shock non qualifiers of 2019, Tulia was in Semi Final 1 which was full of performances that were expected to progress to the Grand Final which didn’t. With their high percentage of points they would have made it through any other year in the decade. They missed out by just two points to Belarus’ ZENA with “Like It”.


3. Emmy - Boom Boom - Armenia - 12th place in 2011 - SF1 - 22.5% (54 points out of 240 - average score 2.7 points)

Emmy tried to boom her way into the finals, but she only just didn’t make the cut. Armenia’s best performing non qualifier of the decade and one out of three entries to make make it to a Eurovision Grand Final in their history.

Glen missed out on the Eurovision grand final by a single point to Switzerland’s Anna Rossinelli and her song “In Love for a While”. It is Malta’s best performing non qualifier song of the decade.


5. The Humans - Goodbye - Romania - 11th place in 2018 - SF2 - 22.29% (107 points out of 480 - average score 2.68 points)

Unfortunately Cristina’s powerful vocals in The Humans’ pop rock song couldn’t get them through, saying goodbye by only four points. The first time Romania failed to qualify for a Grand Final.

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s 2016 entry had all the elements you expect from a Eurovision performance with Dalal and Teen singing a duet ballad through barb wires, accompanied by a Cellist and rapper. It was definitely Grand Final worthy. Unfortunately, Bosnia and Herzegovina haven’t returned to the Contest since.


8. Kuunkuiskaajat - Työlki ellää - Finland - 11th place in 2010 - SF1 - 21.49% (49 points out of 228 - average score 2.58 points)

Vocal group, Witloof Bay, don’t use instruments, the whole song including beat was all them! Belgium managed to match their five non qualifier entries from the previous decade. By percentage this entry was Belgium’s closest entry to miss the Grand Final and best performing non qualifier, they missed out by a single point.


13. Tamara Gachechiladze - Keep the Faith - Georgia - 11th place in 2017 - SF1 - 20.63% (99 points out of 480 - average score 2.48 points)

Aurela came into the Contest with this passionate rock ballad. It is Albania’s best performing non qualifier entry by percentage out of their five non qualifier entries over the decade.


21. Yüksek Sadakat - Live It Up - Turkey - 13th place in 2011 - SF1 - 19.58% (47 points out of 240 - average score 2.35 points)

29. Sofi Marinova - Love Unlimited - Bulgaria - 11th place in 2012 - SF2 - 18.75% (45 points out of 240 - average score 2.25 points)

This extraordinary song which features the words ‘I love you’ in 10 different languages was super close to reaching the 2012 Grand Final. Sofi tied with Norway’s Tooji with 45 points. But due to the tiebreaker rule which favoured the country that received points from more voting nations Norway scrapped through with 11 voting nations compared to Bulgaria’s 10.


30. Aisel - X My Heart - Azerbaijan - 11th place in 2018 - SF1 - 18.65% (94 points out of 504 - average score 2.24 points)

Azerbaijan’s only non qualifier entry in their Eurovision history. Produced by Eurovision powerhouse Dimitris Kontopoulos known for his previous Azerbaijani entry “Hold Me” by Farid Mammadov and both of Sergey Lazarev’s Russian entries in the last decade you would have thought they were onto a winner. It is also his only non-qualifier song entry in Eurovision.


31. Kaliopi - Dona - North Macedonia - 11th place in 2016 - SF2 - 18.33% (88 points out of 480 - average score 2.2 points)

In 2016 Kaliopi from North Macedonia was ever so close to making it to the Grand Final coming in at 11th place having not qualified for the Grand Final for the last three years since Kaliopi represented North Macedonia in 2012 with the song “Crno i belo” one of their best placed entries until Tamara Todevska smashed it. Listen to that falsetto at the end.


32. Suzy - Quero ser tua - Portugal - 11th place in 2014 - SF1 - 18.06% (39 points out of 216 - average score 2.17 points)

Suzy didn’t get through, missing out by a single point to Valentina Monetta from San Marino who clawed her way into the Grand Final with her song “Maybe” for the first time in San Marino’s history. Suzy’s performance remains one of Portugal’s most iconic performances and one of our favourite’s here at Aussievision.


33. Sennek - A Matter of Time - Belgium - 12th place in 2018 - SF1 - 18.06% (91 points out of 504 - average score 2.17 points)

Fan favourite “Verona” a duet by Koit and Laura from Estonia struggled to impress Europe in 2017 and failed to qualify for the Grand Final. Even though Laura’s microphone fails at the beginning she pressed on. They were placed at 6th place by the public televote compared to the juries 17th placing.


40. Anna Odobescu - Stay - Moldova - 12th place in 2019 - SF2 - 17.71% (85 points out of 480 - average score 2.13 points)

Daughter of the famous Greek singer Paschalis Terzis, Yianna had a lot of weight on her shoulders, but unfortunately she failed to impress Europe with her beautiful Greek ballad.

It was a tough Semi Final with Netta, Eleni Foureira, Mikolas Josef and Cesár Sampson all battling out for a place in the Grand Final.

Stella’s “Haba Haba” incorporated English and Swahili lyrics which was the first time that Swahili or any East African language had been sung at Eurovision. It was Norway’s second song and third overall to not make it to the Grand final in their Eurovision history. This powerfully positive and energetic should have so made it to the 2011 Grand Final.

Unfortunately he could only manage15th place in the Semi Final which was Ireland’s worst result at the time tying with Dustin the Turkey’s 15th place in 2008. It wouldn’t be until 2019 when Sarah McTernan sung “22” for Ireland and failed to qualify coming in last in the Semi Final.

Now brace yourself for his one. This entry is Austria’s worst entry of the decade. We are all for risks, and that year they tried out hip hop rap style song with the Austrian duo Trackshittaz. After a few listens it does hook in your brain. It is third non qualifier entry and the only one to come last.
