Finland made its debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961. It has been considered by many fans to be the "under-achievers" of Eurovision, placing last on nine occasions (three of them with the dreaded Nul Points), and being relegated 5 times due to low results. Occasionally the country has had higher places, before scoring low again.

The country is also the one that has waited the longest to achieve its first win. In 2006, after 45 years of bad luck, the heavy metal band Lordi triumphed with the song Hard Rock Hallelujah - the previous record for the longest wait was 31 years by Greece. The victory gave Finland the opportunity to host the contest in Helsinki in 2007.
