Semi Form Guide

This page is a record of each country’s performance in Eurovision Song Contest semi-finals since the “seeded” two-semi structure was inaugurated in 2008.   The ranking is based on the last twelve years of two seeded semi-finals. Countries are ranked firstly by qualification record percentage, and ties broken by average semi-final score.  So on each line is the rank after 2019, then rank after 2018, then country,  percentage, fraction and then average points.

eg :  Australia has qualified in 4 out of 4 semis and has a 100% qualification record.  It’s adjusted* average score in semis is 120.38 points.

*NB: due to “double points” being awarded from 2016 onwards we have halved the total scores for those years so the humungeous points don’t skew the averages.

2019 update: Kate’s easy qualification in Tel Aviv saw Australia maintain it’s perfect record (over an admittedly short period).  The only other country with a 100% rate Ukraine did not compete.  At the other end of the table despite Tamara’s best efforts,  North Macdonia fail to climb due to Serhat and Luca qualifying too.

2020 update:  list now colour coded after the semi draw.  Red for semi one, Blue for semi two, Black not participating, and Orange of course for our hosts.
