#BREAKING – ROMANIA and RUSSIA join AZERBAIJAN as 14 year Eurovision qualification run ends for both



Eurovision 2018 has seen the end of three countries’ 100% qualification rates as both Romania and Russia join Azerbaijan in not advancing to Saturday night’s final.

Russia and Romania in particular have been present in every Eurovision final they’ve entered since the introduction of the semi finals in 2004. This gives them both a 13 year perfect qualification record – accounting for Russia not taking part in 2017 and Romania in 2016. Azerbaijan debuted in 2008, giving them a slightly shorter but still impressive 10 year unblemished record.

This leaves only Ukraine and Australia with a perfect qualification rates.

  1. Look i don’t even agree with a country like Australia even being in the contest, however if it is in the rules then fair play. I would even go as far as to say, on performance they should even win Eurovision this year, she is that good.

  2. Australia is EBU baby and they deserved to be out last year, same for Ukraine 2012 (juries that year save them like juries save Australia in 2017)
