What’s another year? With these words Eurovision legend Johnny Logan took his first of two victories at Eurovision. Now, on the last day of every year, Eurovision fans ask themselves the same question as part of the Eurovision Top 250, in which they rank their all-time favourite Eurovision songs. Will another year bring a new #TOP250 winner?
No. For the fourth year in a row Eurovision 2012 winner Loreen has won the global vote and finished on top of the list. Conchita Wurst finishes in second, with Il Volo, The Common Linnets and Måns Zelmerlöw rounding out the Top 5.
As ever, there is something of a recency bias: five of the Top 10 tracks come from the most recent contest in Vienna.
