#ESCAPED: How Austria Avoided ‘Nul Points’ In The Grand Final

In this new series from Eurovision Ireland, we will be taking a look at the participating countries and their entries that have avoided the dreaded ‘Nul Points’ in the Grand Final – thanks to just one other participating country. Today we look at Austria.

1961

In 1961, Austria was represented by Jimmy Makulis in Cannes. “Sehnsucht” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the UK Jury awarding Austria just 1 point. Austria finished joint 15th/last.

1968

In 1968, Austria was represented by Karel Gott in London. “Tausend Fenster” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the German Jury awarding Austria 2 points. Luxembourg finished joint 13th out of a field of 16.
