With it being Sunday we should next do Sloenia! With it’s debut in 1993, Slovenia hasn’t had much luck. Only twice getting 7th place and in the last 10 years they’ve only made the finals twice. Last year they even got last place in their semi-final round. With such a downward trend is there any …

Next up is Lithuania! Lithuania hasn’t done to well as a country in Eurovision. Not only have they come in last place twice, but they’ve never made top 5. Last year they barely qualified for the finals, but ended in 22nd place. This year they’re sending Vilija Matačiūnaitė to hopefully break the top 5 barrier and …
