    The Nordic countries as power house?-
    Asking – why the Nordic are a power house?-and than just naming the years the won as proof, is not really answering the question asked.

    The only power house in Eurovision terms, in Nordic bloc, is Sweden- I don’t like the song they send but they consistently have good results. Since the introduction of the semi, they didn’t qualify only in one occasion. That should be the criteria for calling somone a power house, All other Nordic countries are fairing between average and miserable.
