Matt is reviewing all songs from Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest. Even though they only have one victory under the belt, Finland in Eurovision has quite a long history, or as some people refer to it, the country of Lordi.
Finland debuted at Eurovision in 1961 and has participated 52 times since its debut in 1961. They won the contest for the first time in 2006 with Lordi’s “Hard Rock Hallelujah”. Previously, its best result was Marion Rung with the song “Tom Tom Tom” in 1973, which placed 6th.
Finland has finished last in the contest ten times and has failed to reach the final seven times. In 2015 Finland finished last in Semi Final One with the shortest ever Eurovision entry “Aina mun pitää” that only lasts 1 minute and 27 seconds.
