When the Eurovision Song Contest started in 1956, Switzerland was one of the founding countries - and with now late Lys Assia they won the very first edition. The country won again in 1988 with Canadian super star Celine Dion and the song Ne partez Pas Sans Moi.
As semi-finals were introduced in 2004, things started to get tough for Switzerland. They have missed the final ten times, and with the four songs that did make it, only once did the country score a top 10 result. That came when Vanilla Ninja represented them with the song Cool Vibes in 2005 and came eight.
In Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014, Sebalter's Hunter Of Stars scored a 13th place. The following three years, Switzerland didn't manage to reach the final.
