Map showing each country’s number of Eurovision wins up to and including 2019.

La nazione più titolata è l’Irlanda, con 7 affermazioni, seguita da Svezia con 6 e Lussemburgo, Francia e Regno Unito con 5 vittorie. I Paesi Bassi hanno vinto 4 volte, Israele, Norvegia e Danimarca 3 volte. Austria, Italia, Spagna, Germania e Svizzera si sono affermate 2 volte. Belgio, Estonia, Finlandia, Grecia, Iugoslavia, Lettonia, Monaco, Serbia, Turchia, Russia, Azerbaigian e Ucraina hanno vinto una volta sola.

Anno particolare il 1969 che vede ben quattro nazioni vincitrici. Al tempo l’unica forma di votazione era la giuria e i 4 paesi finirono a pari punti. Non avendo previsto un secondo metodo di calcolo del punteggio, gli organizzatori non poterono far altro che dichiarare 4 vincitori.

Sono più di sessanta le canzoni che hanno vinto l’Eurovision Song Contest. Il concorso, che è stato trasmesso ogni anno dal suo debutto nel 1956, è uno dei programmi televisivi più longevi del mondo. Negli anni il vincitore del concorso è stato determinato utilizzando diversi sistemi di voto.

Su 60 edizioni del concorso, 59 sono state vinte da un unico paese tranne che nel 1969 anni cui furono quattro nazioni a salire sul primo gradino del podio. Sinora sono ventisei i diversi paesi che hanno vinto il concorso. La Svizzera vinse il primo concorso nel 1956. Il Paese con il più alto numero di vittorie è l’Irlanda, con sette. Il Portogallo è il paese con la più lunga storia nel concorso senza una vittoria. L’unico cantante ad aver vinto due volte il concorso è Johnny Logan, con What’s another year nel 1980 e Hold Me Now nel 1987. A questa si aggiunge la vittoria, come autore di Why Me?, interpretata da Linda Martin nel 1992, sempre in rappresentanza dell’Irlanda. Ma Logan non è l’unico autore ad aver vinto più volte il concorso: Willy van Hemert (Paesi Bassi, 1957 e 1959), Yves Dessca (Monaco, 1971 e Lussemburgo, 1972), Rolf Løvland (Norvegia, 1985 e 1995) e Brendan Graham (Irlanda, 1994 e 1996).

Vincere l’Eurovision Song Contest offre un’opportunità unica al vincitore per capitalizzare il suo successo e la pubblicità che circonda il l’evento o favorire la sua carriera internazionale. Tuttavia, in tutta la storia del concorso, sono relativamente pochi gli artisti che sono riusciti a diventare realmente grandi star internazionali. I più importanti artisti vincitori dell’ESC, che hanno davvero avuto una carriera internazionale, dopo la vittoria, sono gli ABBA, che hanno vinto il concorso nel 1974 per la Svezia con la loro canzone Waterloo. Gli ABBA hanno continuato ad essere una delle band di maggior successo fino alla metà degli anni ’80. Un altro nome importante, che ha successivamente raggiunto fama e successo internazionale, è quello di Céline Dion, che vinse il concorso 1988 per la Svizzera con la canzone Ne partez pas sans moi.

As of 2019, Ireland holds the record for the highest number of wins, having won the contest seven times. Sweden is second with six wins. France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom are joint third with five wins each. Israel hold four victories. Denmark and Norway both won thrice, six countries won twice, while 12 countries won once. A further 24 countries have participated, but have yet to win.

The United Kingdom holds the record for the highest number of runner-up placings, coming in second on no fewer than 15 occasions as of 2019. Germany, Russia, France, Spain and Ireland have four runner-up entries. Norway holds the record for finishing in last place in the final the most times: eleven.

Israel is the only non-European country to win four times.

The early years of the contest saw many wins for “traditional” Eurovision countries: France, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. However, the success of these countries has declined in recent decades; France last won in 1977; and Luxembourg, in 1983. Luxembourg last entered the contest in 1993.

The first years of the 21st century produced numerous first-time winners, from both “new” and long-serving countries who had previously entered numerous times but without victories. Every year from 2001 to 2008 inclusive, a country won for its first time. Estonia was the first post-Soviet country to win the competition in 2001. In 2003, Turkey won for the first time. In 2005, Greece won for the first time, 15 years after the last Southern European country won, i.e. Italy in 1990; overall the South of Europe won the competition only six times (seven if Serbia is included). The 2006 winner was Finland’s Lordi, earning Finland’s first win after having entered the contest for 45 years. Ukraine, on the other hand, did not have to wait so long, winning with only their second entry in 2004. Also notably, although not the nation’s first win, Conchita Wurst’s win in 2014 broke a 48-year losing run for Austria. The contest was won by Russia in 2008.

Serbia won the very first year it entered as an independent state, in 2007, with the Serbian-language ballad “Molitva”.[106] In 2004, Serbia and Montenegro also almost won the initial year it entered as a competitor state, finishing up second behind Ukraine, also with a ballad in Serbian language. Other relatively quick winners were Latvia, who won in 2002, only their third year competing, and Azerbaijan, who won in 2011 in only their fourth year in the competition.

When Portugal won in 2017, they ended a 49-year run of entering without a win, beating Finland’s previous record of 45 years. Cyprus now holds this record, with 35 years without a win, achieving their highest score, Second, in 2018, and Malta is the most successful country without a win, achieving two-second places and two third places.

In 2009, Norway won the contest with 387 points – Alexander Rybak held the winning title with his song “Fairytale”. His outstanding performance meant he had the highest total in the history of the competition, becoming the first competitor to score 300 or more points, including 16 maximum scores. This feat was emulated in 2012, when Sweden won with 372 points, but with a new record of 18 maximum scores. In 2015, Sweden won the contest with 365 points, becoming the first country to ever reach 300 points or more twice while winning both times. Russia placed second with 303 points, becoming the first country to score more than 300 points without winning.

In 2016, the scoring system was changed, which meant that it was much easier to achieve over 300 points – in fact, the winner – Jamala of Ukraine, achieved 534 points, and all of top 9 scored 200 or more points, and 25 of the 26 positions got their highest points ever. This feat was then extended in 2017 when Salvador Sobral beat Ukraine’s points record by 224 points, in addition to Bulgaria beating the same score by 81 points. However, had Portugal won under the previous voting system, it would still have had the highest total ever, with 417 points, becoming the first competitor to score 400 or more points, and would have set a new record of 20 maximum scores, beating Norway and Sweden, respectively.

Since the introduction of the 50/50 voting system in 2009, the juries and the voters have disagreed on the winner on five occasions, in 2011, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. 2011 winner Azerbaijan won only the televotes (jury votes were won by Italy) and 2015 winner Sweden won only the jury votes (televotes were won by Italy). In 2016, Ukraine did not win either the jury vote or the televote, but won the contest with the highest combined vote. The televote was won by Russia and the jury vote by Australia. In 2018, eventual winner Israel won the televote but only came in third with the jury vote (won by Austria). In 2019, Netherlands placed third with the juries (North Macedonia first, Sweden second) and second with the televote (Norway first). However, The Netherlands had the highest combined vote and thus they won the contest.

Trophy – Since 2008, the winner has been awarded an official winner’s trophy of the Eurovision Song Contest. The trophy is a handmade piece of sandblasted glass in the shape of a 1950s microphone. The song writers and composers of the winning entry receive smaller versions of the trophy. The original design was created by Kjell Engman of Kosta Boda, who specialises in glass art.

Winning artists – There have been a number of Eurovision artists and groups whose careers were directly launched into the spotlight following their win. Notable examples were ABBA, who won the contest for Sweden in 1974 with their song “Waterloo”, and went on to become one of the most successful pop bands in history; the French Canadiansinger Céline Dion, who won the contest for Switzerland in 1988 with the song “Ne partez pas sans moi”, which subsequently helped launch her international career;[11] and the winners of the 1981 contest, Bucks Fizz for the United Kingdom with the song “Making Your Mind Up”, which also launched a successful international career.

Other artists who have achieved varying degrees of success after winning the contest includeFrance Gall (“Poupée de cire, poupée de son”, Luxembourg 1965), Dana (“All Kinds of Everything”, Ireland 1970), Vicky Leandros (“Après toi”, Luxembourg 1972), Brotherhood of Man(“Save Your Kisses for Me”, United Kingdom 1976), and Johnny Logan (who won twice for Ireland, with “What’s Another Year” in 1980 and “Hold Me Now” in 1987).

Several other winners were well-known artists who won the contest mid-career after they had already established themselves, including Katrina and the Waves, winners in 1997 with “Love Shine a Light”, Lulu, winner in 1969 with “Boom Bang-a-Bang”, and Sandie Shaw, winner in 1967 with “Puppet on a String”. Women have dominated the contest since its inception, either performing solo or as a member of a group on 50 of the 67 winning entries as of 2018. The 2017 winner was a solo male performance by Salvador Sobral. However, his sister and the song’s composer Luísa Sobral joined him for the winner’s reprise.

The most recent winner of the contest is Duncan Laurence who won the 2019 contest for The Netherlands.

Interval acts and guest appearances – Since 1960, the tradition of interval acts between the songs in the competition programme and the announcement of the voting has been established. Among these acts, there are usually the previous winner, performances devoted to the history of the Eurovision Song Contest, as well as representatives of the traditional music scene of the host country. One of the most famous interval performances is the first public appearance of Riverdance, a theatrical show consisting mainly of traditional Irish music and dance, in 1994. Riverdance was later performed as an interval act at both the Congratulations: 50 Years of the Eurovision Song Contest (2005) and Eurovision Song Contest’s Greatest Hits (2015) events.

Interval and opening entertainment has included such acts as pop superstars Madonna (2019), Justin Timberlake (2016), Aqua (2001) and t.A.T.u. (2009), but also famous violinist Vanessa-Mae (1998) and world music artists Mariza (2018) and Goran Bregović(2008).[123] The world-renowned Cirque du Soleil (2009), Alexandrov Ensemble (2009), Vienna Boys’ Choir (1967 and 2015), Fire of Anatolia (2004) and Prague Theatre of Illuminated Drawings (1984) also performed on the Eurovision stage. A flashmob-styled performance with Madcon performing “Glow”, alongside live and taped footage of public outdoor dance events from across Europe, was the interval act for 2010. Other interval acts include recorded footage of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo (1972), circus clown Charlie Rivel (1973), quick-change artist Arturo Brachetti (1991) and mentalist Lior Suchard (2019).

The 1999 event in Jerusalem finished with the three presenters inviting everyone on stage to sing a rendition of the English version of “Hallelujah”, the Israeli winner from the 1979 Contest, as a tribute to the victims of the Balkan War (particularly FR Yugoslavia, which was banned from participation as penalty for the Balkan Wars). However, due to NATO’s bombing of the Serbian television headquarters, the Eurovision was not broadcast in Serbia that year.

In recognition of Australia’s love affair with the annual event, the interval act for the second semi-final in 2014 was a presentation by Australia featuring Jessica Mauboy who performed “Sea of Flags”. Her appearance marked the first time Australia had been represented at Eurovision and was first solo artist from a non-participating country to perform as a guest. Since 2014 the winners of the most recent Junior Eurovision Song Contest also make a guest appearance during one of the three shows, typically at the Grand Final (however this was moved to the first semi-final for the 2019 contest) and are interviewed at a press conference held for the junior contest.

In the first semi-final of 2016 in Stockholm, part of the interval acts was a dance performance devoted to the European migrant crisis. “The Grey People” was choreographed by Fredrik Rydman.

Special guests of Eurovision Song Contest have been also well-known athletes, such as boxers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko (2005), tennis player Novak Djokovic (2008 first semi-final) and retired basketball player Vlade Divac (2008 Grand Final), who opened the televoting. In 2003, Elton John spoke to the presenters live from the Life Ball in Vienna and one astronaut and one cosmonaut—Ed Lu and Yuri Malenchenko—gave their greetings from the International Space Station (ISS). Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka and Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata opened the televoting for the Grand Final in 2009 during the Expedition 19 flight to the ISS. Tennis player Ana Ivanovic (2008), footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013) and an actress and model Gal Gadot (2019) have appeared in the promotional videos about the host city.[138][139][140]

Since 2013, the tradition of opening the Grand Finals with the “Parade of Nations” or the “Flag Parade” has been established, similar to the Olympic Games opening ceremony. In 2016, the parade was themed as a tribute to Swedish fashion design and dance music with artists being welcomed on stage in a catwalk fashion show with flags being projected onto 26 dresses designed by Bea Szenfeld.

Qui di seguito l’Albo d’oro:

Vincitori per annoSixty-seven songs have won the Eurovision Song Contest, an annual competition organised by member countries of the European Broadcasting Union. The contest, which has been broadcast every year since its debut in 1956, is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world. The contest’s winner has been determined using numerous voting techniques throughout its history; centre to these have been the awarding of points to countries by juries or televoters. The country awarded the most points is declared the winner. The first Eurovision Song Contest was not won on points, but by votes (two per country), and only the winner was announced.

There have been 64 contests, with one winner each year except the tied 1969 contest, which had four. Twenty-seven countries have won the contest. Switzerland won the first contest in 1956. The country with the highest number of wins is Ireland, with seven. The only person to have won more than once as performer is Ireland’s Johnny Logan, who performed “What’s Another Year” in 1980 and “Hold Me Now” in 1987. Logan is also one of only five songwriters to have written more than one winning entry (“Hold Me Now” 1987 and “Why Me?” 1992, performed by Linda Martin). This unique distinction makes Logan the only person to have three Eurovision victories to his/her credit, as either singer, songwriter or both. The other four songwriters with more than one winning entry to their credit are, Willy van Hemert (Netherlands, 1957 and 1959), Yves Dessca (Monaco, 1971 and Luxembourg, 1972), Rolf Løvland (Norway, 1985 and 1995) and Brendan Graham (Ireland, 1994 and 1996).

Winning the Eurovision Song Contest provides a unique opportunity for the winning artist(s) to capitalise on their success and surrounding publicity by launching or furthering their international career during their singing years. However, throughout the history of the contest, relatively few of these artists have gone on to be huge international stars. The most notable winning Eurovision artists whose career was directly launched into the spotlight following their win were the members of ABBA, who won the 1974 contest for Sweden with their song “Waterloo”. ABBA went on to be one of the most successful bands of its time. Another notable winner who subsequently achieved international fame and success was Céline Dion, who won the 1988 contest for Switzerland with the song “Ne partez pas sans moi”.

Since 2008, the winner has been awarded an official winner’s trophy of the Eurovision Song Contest. The trophy is a handmade piece of sandblasted glass in the shape of a 1950s microphone The song writers and composers of the winning entry receive smaller versions of the trophy. The original design was created by Kjell Engman of Kosta Boda, who specialises in glass art.

Eleven Eurovision winners (alongside three non-winners) featured at the Congratulationsconcert in 2005, in which ABBA’s “Waterloo” was voted the most popular song of the contest’s first fifty years.

Ireland has finished first seven times, more than any other country, Ireland also won the contest for three consecutive years (1992, 1993, 1994), more consecutive years than any other country. Three countries have won twice in a row, Spain (1968 and 1969), Luxembourg (1972 and 1973) and Israel (1978 and 1979). Serbia is the only country to win with its debut entry (in 2007), though Serbia had competed previously as part of Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro. The country achieving the highest position on its first appearance in any form in the Contest is Poland, which came second in 1994 (even Switzerland in 1956 won with its second entry of the night). Under the voting system used between 1975 and 2015, the winner of the contest was decided by the final voting nation on eleven occasions.[N 6]

Changes to the voting system, including a steady growth in the number of countries participating and voting, means that the points earned are not comparable across the decades. Portugal’s Salvador Sobral holds the record of the highest number of points in the contest’s history, earning 758 with the song “Amar pelos dois”. Norway’s Alexander Rybak holds the largest margin of victory in absolute points, a 169-point cushion over second place in 2009. Italy’s Gigliola Cinquetti holds the record for largest victory by percentage, scoring almost three times as many as second place (49 points compared with 17 by the runner-up) in the 1964 contest. Under the voting system used from 1975 until 2015, the lowest winning score was Norway’s Bobbysocks!123 points earned (of the 216 available from the 18 other countries) when winning Eurovision 1985, while the lowest winning total ever is the 18 points (of the 160 total votes cast by 16 countries) scored by each of the four winning countries in 1969.

Under the voting system used from 1975 until 2015, in which each country gives maximum points to its first place choice, Sweden’s Loreen won Eurovision 2012 with the most ever first place votes earned, receiving first place votes from 18 of 41 countries (excluding themselves). The 1976 United Kingdom entrant, Brotherhood of Man with the song “Save Your Kisses For Me” holds the record of the highest average score per participating country, with an average of 9.65 points received per country. 2011 winner Azerbaijan Ell & Nikki, hold the lowest average score for a winning song under that system, receiving 5.14 points per country.

The United Kingdom has finished second fifteen times at Eurovision (most recently in 1998), more than any other country. The most successful country never to have won the Contest is Malta, having finished second in 2002 and 2005 and third in 1992 and 1998. Another island nation Iceland has also finished second twice, in 1999 and 2009.

There is no official runner-up for two of the contests – 1956 and 1969. In 1956 only the winner, Switzerland, was announced, whilst there were speculative reports that Germany ended up in second place with “Im Wartesaal zum großen Glück” by Walter Andreas Schwarz, given that Germany was chosen to host the 1957 contest. In 1969 four songs shared first place by achieving the same number of points; fifth place was achieved by Switzerland, which is not considered an official runner-up, because of the draw for first place.

List of Eurovision Song Contest winning songwriters – 67 songs written by 124 songwriters have won the Eurovision Song Contest, an annual competition organised by member countries of the European Broadcasting Union. The contest, which has been broadcast every year since its debut in 1956, is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world. The contest’s winner have been determined using numerous voting techniquesthroughout its history; centre to these have been the awarding of points to countries by juries or televoters. The country with the song that was awarded the most points is declared the winner. The songwriters of the winning song have often been the first people to be called up on stage to receive their trophy before the performers perform the winning reprise.

There have been 64 contests, with one winning country each year except the tied 1969 contest, which had four.
