Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe.
It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. At 450,295 square kilometers (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of 10 million.
Easily the best country in Eurovision, followed by Ukraine as 2nd and Italy as 3rd. The actual results of these votes are very fair. The rest of the countries on a broad spectrum don't really stand a chance against these 3 titans.
Bloody hell, should deserve the top spot just because of Euphoria. Sweden delivers consistency like no other. Like with all popular and sucessful institutions there will be bad mouthing in attempts to highlight another, often your own, country. For example there is talk of Swedens lack of diversity in what it brings to the table. That Swedebn always goes with a traditional pop formula. I remember when Sweden blew me away with a dancing Indian for crying out loud. I'm at awe. Massive respect to that cold land of beautiful people, Europe (including us British) loves you!
Classic Eurovision country. I think they were underrated in Rotterdam because everyone hated that song except me. Otherwise they are the best country in the 2010's(except in 2010 where they failed to qualify). If there was a Eurovision Ranking of Nations Sweden would always be near the top position.
Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest European country, covering approximately 600,000 square kilometres (230,000 sq mi), and has a population of around 40 million people. It is bordered by Russia to the east and northeast; by Belarus to the north; by Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary to the west; and by Romania and Moldova to the southwest; with a coastline along the Black... read more
Unlike the overrated Sweden, which always brings really basic songs with badly-written lyrics, the Ukrainian entries are (in most cases) quality songs with a catchy rhythm and a real meaning. Shady Lady is the ultimate anthem.
Same here. I expected "SHUM" to be about 14th-16th but it came 5th to my surprise. Ukraine are the only country to have always qualified from their semi-final. Plus, where's Australia, Armenia and France? They have been doing okay recently.
From 2004- 1 time the winner and 4 times top 5. Always good entries, beautiful artists and something special every new Eurovision year.

Madness of Love, L'amore é Femmina, Grande Amore.. Italy may have only recently rejoined but they're already one of the most consistently fantastic countries!
Italian song are awesome
Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.
Oslo is the capital of Norway. Norwegian is the official language of Norway.
Nocturne anyone? Also Fairytale got an insane amount of points back in 2009! Norway is definitely one of the most reliable coutries when it comes to producing music for Eurovision Song Contest.
I loved Spirit in the Sky from 2019 and Fallen Angel from 2021. I was quite picky with their 2020 entry - I didn't think it was that good.
I loved how they hosted the eurovision in 2010. They got whole Europe to dance!
Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe. It is a part of the Caucasus region, and is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia and Turkey to the west, and Iran to the south. Baku is the capital and largest city.
Does not even need to qualify, much less participate in the contest.
Last 3 years Azerbaijan is always in TOP-5!
I love Azerbaijan. You are best

I love Die for you... I love Secret Combination... I love My number one... I love Shake it... I love Rise up... I love Everything... I love Opa!... I love Watch my dance... I love Alcohol is free... I love Aphrodisiac... I love all Greek entries in eurovision!
Greece never get the last position in Eurovision!
Greece has 1 first position, 3 third positions and 2 fifth positions!
I love my country despite the fact that the last years is underrated!

The Netherlands, informally Holland, is a country located in north-western Europe with overseas territories in the Caribbean. It is the largest of four constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Netherlands consists of twelve provinces, and borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the ...read more.
The Netherlands has good songs but all the countries vote for each other. The Netherlands has only Belgium, Luxemburg (if the show up) and Germany (Not always voting but that's ok) and the UK (same story as Germany)
Netherlands is one of 5 countries to win the contest 5 times.
Won 4 times, were better in History. But Anouk was very good last year. We're BACK!
Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.
Brendan Murray 2017,Nick Byrne sunlight and molly sterling should have qualified 3 good solid songs like.
But no one votes for Ireland anymore because
Too much eastern countries and then us and Britain don't have a chance at all.
They should call it Eastern Eurovision song contest
They hold the best record for Eurovision wins, 7 in total. No country has been able to match that. Their recent entries have been very diverse, though not always successful, is mainly due to block voting.
So underrated for there 2014 song heartbeat. I live here and I can tell you that the song should have at least got 8Th place in the final.
Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that rises above sea level, and its central volcanic plateau is erupting almost constantly. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle. Its high latitude and marine influence ...read more.
I think Iceland is an extremely underrated country in Eurovision. Unfortunately, it is subject to not receive many votes as it has no neighbouring countries, only having friendships with a couple of Scandinavian countries. This year's entry, 'Eg A Lif', was not the best Icelandic entry. However, I believe that 2012's entry, 'Never Forget' was the best Eurovision entry to date.
Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe.

They were one of the countries creating competition with great songs every year. Hope they will rejoin soon.
They don't participate anymore, but they were one of th best countries the last decade.
Probably they will participate in 2017 Ukraine, we miss you guys!

They always have high quality songs, filed with emotion and passion, and they should definitely be above Norway!

It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, ...read more.
I think that Serbia is one of the best countries at Eurovision, due to the fact that they are the only country to win on their debut apart from Switzerland at the very first Eurovision.
Apart from Switzerland, what!? Pleas, learn some history.

It also had some of the most hilarious entries such as Samo ljubezen in 2002, Nanana in 2003, and Mr Nobody in 2006. Let's make Ljubljana 2017 happen!
Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.

Located in Western Asia on the Armenian Highlands, it is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, the de facto independent Republic of Artsakh and Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran and Azerbaijan's exclave of Nakhchivan to the south.
Armenia is always classy
I love Armenia in Eurovision my favorite song is Jan Jan (Nor Par). Inga and Anush are underrated süngerse and my least favorite song is Qele Qele. Seriously why is this song finished 4th? Extremely overrated. Sirusho is an idiot terrible singer.
Really good songs

Australia is the only country to never leave the top 10. Although it is not actually in Europe, the country has one of the highest Eurovision viewership is the world. (and it is on at 3 in the morning) Australia has sat quietly watching for years and once the country finished in the top 5 on its first appearance, it has been in the competition ever since.
Some people hate Australia simply because it isn't in Europe but nobody can deny that the country is extremely good and has had 3 citizens win the competition (for other countries)
No offense, but how did they get in? They are not even close to Europe but they are good though.
Not in Europe, not in Eurovision.

Lost their enthusiasm for Europe and the country has got tired of the partisan voting. Used to be very good when th European club was more exclusive but now feeling why bother!
Even though we have come last for two years running, I still thank the BBC for proving that you can still have a good night even if you come last.
They aren't that good anymore, but 20 years ago, they were the best and won lots of time, so they used to be great.
Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806.
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. ...read more.
