It is quite mixed results, we have seen Finland get over the years. The country came last not less than 10 times, in three cases even scoring the dreaded nil points. Since the introduction of semi-finals in 2004, the country failed to reach the final seven times - in average every second year. In recent years though, the country weren't in the final in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Did Saara Aalto feel this pressure on her when she accepted the challenge of representing the country in 2018?
But all is not bad for Finland. In 2006, the rock band Lordi secured the country their very first win - and what a win. The iconic performance of Hard Rock Hallelujah will forever stand out in the Eurovision history books. Through the years, Finland have earned several 6th and 7th places as well, but their victory is the only time the country reached top 5.
