Best Eurovision Winners

The Top Ten
1 ABBA - Waterloo

They were an amazing group, and I am very greatfull for the contest, otherwise the world would have never gotten the chance to see what they could do. It was a breakthrough, not only for ABBA, but for Sweden also. Surprisingly, though, ABBA did lose the eurovision contest the year before with Ring Ring, which was a great song. Their outstanding career after the contest makes them, in my opinion, the best eurovision winner.

ABBA is definitely a great band. They deserve to have won Eurovision, in fact I would be surprised if they didn't. They had a lot of great songs. ABBA are definitely the winners of all time. Even considering the fact that they broke up they were a fantastic group. I am a huge fan of them!

ABBA was the most notable winning Eurovision artist whose career was directly launched into the spotlight following their win. They went on to become one of the most successful bands of all time.

Certainly the catchiest ever eurovision song with a real european theme, if napoleon boneapart didn't conquer europe abba certainly did.

2 Alexander Rybak - Fairytale

This will forever be my favorite Eurovision winner, ever. Alexander is such a talented artist, with an ability to play the violin that is almost transcendent. It doesn't matter what mood I'm in, I will always listen to this song! It's so fun and emotional and filled with the glorious voice of Alexander and his violin! I adore this song and the artist to no end! He EARNED his win, and I'm so happy that he's had such fantastic success because he so deserves it! Love from Sweden!

The song is one of the highest scoring songs ever, and it was known to be the winner an insanely long time before the voting was done. It has a lot of unique elements, so it stands out in the crowd. The song also does a good job of representing its country, using a traditional Norwegian instrument. This song should be in the top 10.

Alexander Rybak is my favourite winner and my huge role model. Also he scored really really high. He is unique and he is the best on the violin and is should be number 1! Also I am a huge fan of him!

He was the most charismatic winner ever and far the best of that year. Apart from the fact that Alex deserved to win, he also seems like a very funny and nice guy so I really wanted it for him.

3 Amar Pelos Dois - Salvador Sobral

I get it, it definitely does not meet the normal standard of an Eurovision song. But when you think about it, every historical song in the contest was not as the previous ones.
Simply a masterpiece. And when you realize it would be even better if Eurovision allowed for live instrumentals or some improvisation, you just know it is one of the best songs out there

Portugal waited so long to produce what could arguably be the best winner in the past 20 years. Amazing song, amazing composer, amazing artist.

I was first not fully convinced, but when I saw him on stage my heart melted and I couldn't do something else than just staring at my screen ans feel what he feels.

One of the best for sure. He brought this masterpiece on stage, felt it, sang in his language with his heart, and made us feel as well. Masterpiece, one of the most unforgettable entries in the contest ever.�'

4 Gigliola Cinquetti - Non Ho L'età

Unforgettable song... I'm impressed you didn't placed it in the list. Like in the most of the nicest songs of the eurovision you must listen to the message inside the text, and this one is really beautiful.

Wonderful tune. We don't need any translation

5 Lordi - Hard Rock Hallelujah Lordi are a Finnish hard rock/heavy metal band, formed in 1992 by the band's lead singer, songwriter and costume maker, Mr Lordi.

The only eurovision song I enjoyed listening too. Unlike the songs above and below it, it did not rely on silly gimmics to get votes. No, it was just a great all round song. Even now 11 years later, I still appreciate its quality

The fact that Finland choose a band that represents the music of its people, not expecting it to win. What happens? They win. Not to mention it's a fantastic metal song.

One of my favorite song.

6 Ruslana - Wild Dances

This is the most unique act winning the Eurovision Song Contest. No discussion.

Love it! And by the way, I really think that Lordi (the idiot in the mask) sucks.

This is the best song ever! Not just in Eurovision! The best!

Best one ever. Loved it - like Xena Warrior Princess!

7 Euphoria - Loreen

She decide to make her performance with her personality, and not what everyone was expecting from a eurovision performance. She won with her supreme voice and talent that is born in a true performer. Euphoria is song that you can't forget easily with its amazing lines and voicing it's something special that will never go away and is all done to Loreen she gaves us the power and will continue to do so!

Just everything about this song is so beautiful. The lyrics, the track, the clothes, the choreography, and Loreen in general- she's so passionate about what she believes, and it's shown. Easily my favourite Eurovision song ever.

She is the best singer ever performed at Eurovision. She has most uniqe style (not only clothes also moves). She engages in a large number of shares, including human rights. Loreen is so sparse star cares about his fans and contact them. She fully deserves to win

This should be number two only second to ABBA. If you really understood what the song was about, you'd rank it higher. Not to mention that it became a mega-hit in all of Europe after her win.

8 France Gall - Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son

One of the best winners, and the first winner that is actually still good today.

9 Grethe & Jørgen Ingmann - Dansevise

Despite being from 1963, this song just has such a timeless quality to it! The song has a beautiful, haunting melody to accompany its vivid and melancholic lyrics. To top it off, it was performed wonderfully by Grethe and Jorgen. It's a winner that's rather underrated, considering people always talk about Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son regarding Eurovision in the 60s.

My favourite ESC-Winner. I love this. Truly haunting and beautiful. Like a danish Mamas and Papas

Greatest Eurovision song. Unique, atmospheric.

10 Marie N - I Wanna
The Contenders
11 Sandie Shaw - Puppet On A String
12 The Olsen Brothers - Fly On The Wings Of Love

This song is so fun to listen to! The acoustic guitars add so much and give it a more folk-like sound. This is such a fun and meaningful song! SO glad it won!

- Two elder brothers against the young rest of Europe. And wonderful voice and lyrics.

13 Sertab Erener - Every Way That I Can

One of the best musical voice on the world. Wonderful song and a great interpreter, all the songs are good (because they have won, and there must be something good in them) but I think this is the best of all the list. In the second place I would have place the turkish song, because it is the first of a new category of folk-pop melodies competing in the eurovision

First, the show was amazing. Then, Sertab Erener, the Singer, one of the best musical voice on the world. Plus, the song is good. Totally it deserves the label; ever best song of the eurovision finals...

2003 is one of the best years. What a thriller

She is just the best! A superb song

14 Katrina and the Waves - Love Shine a Light

It has the highest point percentage in the whole history of the competition and this was in 1997 and it is still standing in 2011, most points stood until 2004 and largest margin til 2009!

Clearly best song... ,sung so well, great words and great score! Why have we allowed rubbish entries since! A quality song sung well will do better

One of the greatest performances and songs of the competition. Loved it!

15 Helena Pararizou - My Number One

This song (My number one) was voted fourth in the best songs in Eurovision (2006)!

The Greece has the best song in eurovision 2005.I love that song.

Extraordinary song, extraordinary singer...

I love this song! Helena is the great singer!

16 Marija Serifovic - Molitva

This is the most intense and emotional Eurovision song of all time, Marija gave the most emotional and intense performance ever. Being that emotional and intense song with such a strong rhythm, it's definitely the ONLY EXCELLENT Eurovision song yet and the best of all time... Step aside Abba!

One of the best songs on ESC ever. Great interpretation and stunning performance. I shudder every time I hear this song. Marija, thank you for wonderful song, strong voice and everything!

Marija gave the most emotion and intense performance ever... no other singer gave so much emotion...Molitva is easily the best Eurovision song of all time!

This is the most powerful Eurovision winner ever- most songs you never listen to again, but I'm always playing this, sends tingles down spine every time.

17 Jamala - 1944

You will not confuse her voice with anyone. I'm so impressed, Jamala's vocal skills and technique can move the mountains. Really deep, beautiful and touching song!

This song is not everyone's cup of tea but I'm glad she won. I wanted to hear something different from Pop and I got it!. Great job!

The performance, Jamal's vocals, and the message behind the song were all perfect.

Love Jamala, her voice is beautiful! Brings tears to my eyes!

18 Heroes - Måns Zelmerlöw

Why isn't Heroes in Top 10?! It's by far the best song in eurovision, and has a really cute mesage about bullying. We are the heroes of our time!

Sounds like Lovers On the Sun but awesome! Absolutely happy this song won, despite I'm from Ireland

In my opinion one of the best winners ever in this amazing contest!

A catchy tune that never fails to keep me energised, so underrated.

19 Conchita - Rise Like a Phoenix

I think this song is awful!

20 Lena - Satellite

She made this contest more modern. Also her performance was perferkt and very modern with not too much show-performance.

Really simple, but really effective!

I thing it's a good song

21 Dana International - Diva

Dana the best of eurovision! Diva! Diva! ! Diva!

22 Charlotte Nilsson - Take Me to Your Heaven
23 Niamh Kavanagh - In Your Eyes

Extraordinary vocals and beautiful song, elegantly performed

24 Emmelie de Forest - Only Teardrops

My personal favorite song of all time, Eurovision or otherwise. Well done Denmark!

Emmelie is the best! And this song is just amazing

For me this is just the best song ever! And Emmelie is so adorable

25 Toto Cotugno - Insieme 1992

This entry has an amazing message, which in some ways do work up until this day! On that, an amazing melody and of course, the beautiful italian language!

This song is an hymn in these difficult times 20 years after.
