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

In this 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 Finland.

1968

In 1968, Finland was represented by Kristina Hautala in London. “Fun kello kay” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the Norwegian Jury awarding Finland just 1 point. Finland finished joint 16th/last.
