Dare to Dream

ESC2018

Norway made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960. The country has finished last more times than any other however in the case of Jahn Teigen, who scored zero in 1978, it turned him into a star!

Norway has the dubious record of finishing last most times (11 in total), including scoring nul points on four occasions. On the other hand, Norway has won the contest three times and scored the biggest margin of victory ever in 2009.
Nora Brockstedt gave Norway its first top five placing when the country debuted in 1960. She performed Voi Voi in London and finished in fourth place. Prior to the first Norwegian victory in 1985, the country had only once reached the top five, in 1966. Ten years after Bobbysocks won with La Det Swinge in 1985, Secret Garden scored the second victory for Norway with Nocturne. The following year in Oslo, Norway finished second for the one and to date, only time, when Elisabeth Andreassen represented the country on home ground with the song I evighet.
Norway has finished last in every decade since the 1960s and more recently Norway finished last in Baku in 2012 with Stay performed by Tooji. However it's not all bad news, since the Semi-Finals were introduced Norway has only failed to qualify for the final on three occasions.
