Ukraine

Ukraine is the best scoring country in the Eurovision Song Contest (click here for proof). The country debuted in 2003, one year before the semi-finals were introduced. The semi-finals did not prove to be a hurdle for the country’s contestants: until now all participants reached the final.

Ukraine stood at the top of the podium twice. In 2004, Ruslana won with Wild dances, a song that referred to the culture of the Hutsults - the highlanders who live in the Carpathian Mountains. In 2016, Jamala won the contest with 1944, a song about the prosecution of the Crimean Tatars. Furthermore, there were two runner-ups and another five contestants, who reached the top ten. As such, Ukraine remains the Eurovision-country to beat.
