2012

17q

4s1

13s1

25

Greece (GR) finished 4th in Semi Final 1 (4s1) and then finished 17th in the final after qualifying (17q).

Israel (IL) finished 13th in Semi Final 1 (13s1) and did not qualify for the final.

The UK (UK) finished 25th in the Final (25) without having to qualify.

THE MAIN TABLE

2018s results provide us with Israel's 4th win (40 years after their first and 20 years after their last) and the best result ever for Cyprus and the Czech Republic. Romania, Russia and Azerbaijan lost their 100% qualification record and Portugal managed to achieve the often-repeated host coming last or close to last place. This was Germany's best result since 2010, Ireland's best since 2011 and Albania's best since 2012. Switzerland now holds the record for staying in the Semi Final - 11 out of 15 times.
