The Eurovision Song Contest started in 1956, and in it's second year, Austria joined the fun. Over the years their results have been quite mixed.
Two victories, in 1966 and again in 2014, but also eight times finishing last, that's the overall stats for Austria's Eurovision journey. As the semi-finals were introduced in 2004, the country failed to reach the final four times. The last time that happened dates back to 2013 where Natália Kelly didn't Shine as much as the song title indicated. Her poor result was however quickly forfotten as she was followed by Conchita Wurst who secured the country their second win.
in 2015, The Makemakes represented Austria on home-field, and unfortunately scored the worst ever for a host country. Together with neighbouring Germany, they failed to get one single point.
