How harmful can a glass ceiling be?

About one of the UK contenders’ video online ; here is what I came up with, responding to someone who was comparing Eurovision : You Decide to Eesti Laul this year :

Do you think there’s an actual glass ceiling effect of segregation between established acts and newcomers that’s definitely stopping some countries from achieving good results (again) ? 

Be careful I am not advocating the importance of having great and renown artists necessarily competing at Eurovision – which can actually be almost null for some countries still managing to achieve good results, but we’re focusing here on the importance of not labelling and treating national final artists based on their past experience. Is that truly harmful when it comes to relevance and the successful or non-successful establishment of a national selection and therefore to a larger extent to the country’s record on long term ?
