Austria has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 52 times since its debut in 1957. The country has won twice, in 1966 and 2014, and currently holds the record for the longest gap between wins, with 48 years between victories. The contest is broadcast in Austria by ORF. Vienna was the host city on both of the occasions that the contest was held in Austria, in 1967 and 2015. Having finished sixth at the 1964 contest and fourth in 1965, Udo Jurgens won at his third attempt in 1966 with the song “Merci Chérie”. This was Austria’s only top three result of the 20th century. Austria won again in 2014, with Conchita Wurst and “Rise Like a Phoenix”. Austria has finished last in the contest final seven times (1957, 1961, 1962, 1979, 1984, 1988 and 1991) and finished last in the semifinal in 2012. Cesár Sampson achieved Austria’s eighth top five result and second-best result of the 21st century at the 2018 contest, finishing third with the song “Nobody But You”.
