France is a grand old country in Eurovision. They have participated 58 times since the start of Eurovision in 1956. The best results are five victories in 1977, 1969, 1962, 1960, 1958. The latest victory was in 1977 - 38 years ago! The worst result was in 2014, where France ended last in the Grand Final, and in the last 13 years, they only managed once to be in top-10. France is a member of "Big 5", so they don't have to go through the semi-final-qualifications, but are automatically qualified for the Grand Finals.
