Euphoria rules again on ESC Top 250!

With her 2012 Eurovision winning song Euphoria, Sweden’s Loreen has extended her reign at the top of the ‚ESC Top 250‘ into another year, congratulations! Fuego, Cyprus’ 2018 entry by Eleni Foureira climbed back to number two, while Duncan Laurence and Arcade, the 2019 Eurovision winner from The Netherlands dropped one place to number three.

From the 2020 entries one song made it to the Top 10, and that’s at #8 Italy’s Fai Rumore, which should have been performed by Diodato at the Contest in Rotterdam last May. Daði & Gagnamagnið and Think About Things (Iceland) came off second best at #16, followed by Victoria’s Tears Getting Sober (Bulgaria) at #26, Gjon’s Tears Répondez-moi (Switzerland) at #31 and The Roop On Fire (Lithuania) at #40.

As in former editions of the ‘ESC Top 250’, songs from recent years dominate the voting. ESC classics that fared very well are Norway’s 1995 winning song Nocturne by Secret Garden, placed 12th, ABBA Waterloo (Sweden 1974), placed 19th, Sebnem Paker Dinle (Turkey 1997), placed 21st, Anabel Conde Vuelve Conmigo (Spain 1995), placed 35th and Gina G – Ooh Aah…Just A Little Bit (United Kingdom 1996), placed 38th.

For the complete ranking of the ‘ESC Top 250′ please see below.

On this occasion, we’d like to thank Belgian website Songfestival.be for the organization of the voting.
