France in Eurovision Song Contest

France 2017: Alma - "Requiem"

France is a grand old country in Eurovision. They have participated 60 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 - 40 years ago! The worst result was in 2014, where France ended last in the Grand Final, and in the last 15 years, they only managed twice 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.
