The United Kingdom’s Eurovision Journey
Despite a recent slump in results, the UK is one of the most successful countries at the Eurovision Song Contest. Debuting at the second edition ever of the Contest in 1957, the United Kingdom has won the competition on five separate occasions. The most recent win for the UK was in 1997 with Katrina and the Waves, singing “Love Shine A Light”. The UK also holds the record for the number of second-place finishes – currently at 15.
In 2021, the UK was represented by James Newman with his song “Embers”. However, the performance failed to impress juries or televoters, finishing in last place with zero points.
