10's across the board for Austria!! OK, so maybe not the sort of 10's we're used to today, but there were certainly a lot of tenth places for Austria during the 90's - FOUR to be exact - and that's as good as they got.
So Austria have had a bit of a tough run in Eurovision. They've posted four 0 scores since joining the contest in 1957, and have only made the top ten three times in the last 20 years since the 90's, so the deacde we are highlighting now isn't really that bad in retrospect.
Of course, everything balanced out in 2014 when Conchita Wurst won the contest with Rise Like A Phoenix, so we all still get excited to see what the country comes up with next. Let's just hope it doesn't take another 48 years for another win to happen again.
