    It would be pretty hard to take being beaten by a band that withdrew I would imagine!

    Has this ever happened to anyone's knowledge?

    I remember reading about a musical contest years ago (might have been a choral competition? Might have been in Sweden? Who knows...) where there was only one entrant. However, said entrant turned up late, and were penalised the regulation amount for lateness - one place in the ranking. So they were awarded second place out of one.

    Not quite coming behind a withdrawn group though...
