ESC Top 250 – Eurovision fans still ‘euphoric’

Sweden’s 2012 Eurovision winning song, Euphoria, performed by Loreen, has won the ‘ESC Top 250’ voting for a seventh year running. Last night, during the last minutes of the year, the countdown was complete, and Loreen finished on top once again, congratulations! This year’s Eurovision Song Contest runner-up, Eleni Foureira’s Fuego (Cyprus), stormed to No. 2, while Israel’s winning song Toy reached only No. 23 – the second time for the latest ESC winning song to finish outside the Top 10 or even Top 20 (in 2011, Ell/Nikki’s Running Scared entered the Top 250 at No. 44).
The 2017 Eurovision winning song Amar Pelos Dois completes this year’s Top Three.

Only two songs from before 2000 reached the Top 20: Norway’s 1995 entry Nocturne by Secret Garden at #10, and ABBA’s 1974 ESC classic Waterloo at #11.

Sorted by countries, Italy tops the list with 15 songs among the Top 250. followed by Sweden and Israel with 12 songs each, and Norway with 11.

In late November, early December the worldwide Eurovision fans were invited to vote for their favourite songs from the Contest history. It was the eleventh time that the ESC Top 250 were held. Since younger fans are more active in online votings, songs from recent years tend to dominate.
