Stockholm 2016 is your favourite Eurovision Song Contest of the 2010s
Eurovision 2016 took place in Stockholm’s Globen Arena. Ukraine won with Jamala and “1944”. The staging captivated audiences, particularly the unforgettable moment where a golden tree burst out of Jamala. This signified hope and rebirth. This was also the year in which hosts Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede performed the iconic interval act “Love Love Peace Peace”.
The 2016 edition amassed a tally of 592 votes or 20.91% of all votes cast.
Readers previously deemed Stockholm to have had the best interval performance with “Love Love Peace Peace”, best runner-up in the form of Australia’s Dami Im and the best hosts in Petra Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw.
Not far behind is the most recent running of the contest — Tel Aviv 2019.
Memorable moments from this edition included Madonna’s performance and the “Switch Song”. The Netherlands’ Duncan Laurence won the trophy – becoming the fifth Eurovision winner from the country and the first since 1975.
A total of 575 votes lent their support to the Israeli contest — that’s 20.31% of all votes cast.
The podium is completed by Lisbon 2018.
The fierce Israeli diva Netta Barzilai won with her upbeat feminist bop “Toy”. It was the fourth Israeli victory in Eurovision history. For many fans, 2018 will be remembered as the year where Eleni Foureira came second.
The nautical-themed edition picked up 386 votes or 13.63% of all votes cast.
Voters had already decided that Portugal’s homegirl Cláudia Pascoal was their favourite last-place finalist of the decade.
