Eurovision Top 250: Loreen wins #ESC250 ahead of Il Volo and Sergey Lazarev

Happy new year! As 2016 came to a close, Eurovision fans across the globe ranked their all-time favourite Eurovision songs as part of the annual Eurovision Top 250, which is revealed at the end of each and every year. And like a Christmas TV schedule full of repeats, Loreen has come out on top of the #ESC250 list for the fifth consecutive year.

Il Volo moved up a place from last year to finish second (watching last year’s runner-up Conchita Wurst drop to #10).

Three entries from the most recent contest in Stockholm made it to the top 10: Sergey Lazarev finished third, Jamala finished fourth, and Poli Genova finished sixth.

Loreen, who has been unbeatable since her win at Eurovision 2012, would love to be the one to un-do her own winning streak in the ESC250. She’s competing at Melodifestivalen 2017, which could pave the way for her to sing at Eurovision again.

In addition to Loreen, the Top 10 includes five other Eurovision winners: Jamala at #4, Sertab Erener at #5, Måns Zelmerlöw at #8, Marija Serifovic at #9 and Conchita Wurst at #10.

Spain’s Pastora Soler, who placed seventh in this year’s vote, is the lowest-placing act to make the Top 10. At Eurovision 2012 she finished tenth with “Quédate Conmigo.”

You can see the full 2016 list of the Eurovision Top 250 at the end of this post. But first you can enjoy the Top 10 in reverse order…
