Finland has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 55 times since its debut in 1961. Finland won the contest for the first – and to date only – time in 2006 with Lordi’s “Hard Rock Hallelujah”. The country’s best result before then was achieved by Marion Rung with the song “Tom Tom Tom” in 1973, which placed sixth. Finland has finished last in the contest eleven times, receiving nul points in 1963, 1965 and 1982. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, Finland has failed to reach the final eight times. In 2014, the country had its best result in eight years when Softengine with “Something Better” finished 11th, a result that would be surpassed seven years later by Blind Channel with “Dark Side”, which came sixth in 2021, thereby achieving the country’s joint-second best result to date and its first top 10 result since 2006. In 2015, Finland finished last in the first semi-final with the shortest-ever Eurovision entry, “Aina mun pitää” performed by Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät.
