From Denmark we head north to Norway. Norway last hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2010 after Alexander Rybak’s landslide victory at the 2009 contest in Moscow. Since then Norway has had two top.10 results, but has also failed to qualify for the final once.
Norway debuted in the contest back in 1960 with Nora Brockstedt singing “Voi Voi”, she finished 4th with 11 points, 24 points behind that years winners France. Norway has the unfortunate record of finishing last a total of 11 times, but has won the contest a total of three times in 1985, 1995 and 2009.
