#ESCAPED: How Sweden 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 Sweden.

1961

In 1961, Sweden was represented by Lill-Babs in Cannes. “April, april” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the French Jury awarding Sweden 2 points. Sweden finished 14th out of a field of 16.
