Semi Form Guide

This page is a record of each country’s record in Eurovision Song Contest semi-finals since the “seeded” two-semi structure was inaugurated in 2008. We have now (finally) updated the table with 2016 data.  It is based on the last nine years of two seeded semi-finals. Countries are ranked by qualification record percentage, and ties broken by average semi-final score.  So on each line is the rank, then country,  percentage, fraction and then average points.   Due to “double points” being awarded in 2016 we have halfed the total scores for that year so the humungeous points don’t skew the averages.
