New Year’s Eve means only one thing for Eurovision fans — the return of the Eurovision Top 250 Countdown, often known as ESC 250. The yearly poll sees fans pick their favourite 250 entries from the contest’s history.

Eurovision 2012 champion Loreen sat atop the podium for ten consecutive years with “Euphoria”. That is until Spain’s 2022 star, Chanel, took over after climbing all the way to the top of last year’s ranking with the booty-hypnotic “SloMo”.

But in the end, neither of them were able to take home another crown this year. Instead, it was Finland’s Käärijä who emerged victorious with voters, selecting his 2023 entry “Cha Cha Cha” as the number one Eurovision song of all time.

Voting for ESC 250 — organised once again by Songfestival.be — took place earlier in the month, with Eurovision fans submitting points for their top 10 favourite songs from the contest’s history. The results of the poll were then revealed throughout New Year’s Eve, 31 December.

In a change to previous years, the 2023 countdown was held on EFR12 Radio.

Who do you think of the ESC 250 2023 results? What was your personal ranking? Let us know in the comments below.

It’s actually a fun song. People voted for it because it is an anti-war song from Israel that can be applied to the modern day if you replace the Syrian flags for Palestinians.

I had an amazing time listening to the radio yesterday, a great way to pass New Year’s Eve by singing and ending it with Cha cha cha was the best way to celebrate the new year on a happy and joyful note. This song can make me smile no matter how sad and depressed I am; that’s what makes Kaarija so special to me.

Happy New Year everyone!

Is Wiwi really boycotting Israeli selection as some say below? If so that really is disgustingly antisemetic.

Israel was attacked and is still being attacked, they have the right to defend themselves, if you believe the world’s only Jewish state doesn’t have that right, you really need to ask yourself some deep personal questions.

Boycotting a specific nations politics is not the same as boycotting an entire religion! It is not antisemitism to protest Israels politics. Get that in your head! The word antisemitism has lost its value as of today as everyone is suddenly antisemits just because they want peace for Palestine… ridicilous…

The TRUE best Eurovision song of all time is seemingly Nocturne!!!! No discussion. This top250 proves it as Nocturne is the only pre?2000s song in the top25 at number 24. One has to go for a top50 to find another pre-2000s song (ABBA). Nocturne is also a song not “affected” at all by the rush of 2023 entries this year. Also despite loads of spanish, swedish and this year finnish fans as well voting like crazy for their songs, living in the NOW only, at least Nocturne stays strong! There is no way that neither “Cha Cha Cha”, “Tattoo” or… Read more »

U know juries vote also if they like one song. If you suggest that Blanca Paloma should be higher in juries , despite their top 10 , ignoring the fact that countless people find the song annoying, then juries shouldn’t have places Kaarija that high(4th). This performance was not jury friendly. His voice was mediocre to say the least. But guess what. They liked it. Tattoo is both likeable and extremely jury friendly

Self defense is not an excuse to commit a genocide. Don’t get me wrong. I’m against the hamas and I totally understand you have to fight back but what the Israeli army is doing under the supervision of Netanyahou’s politic is not okay. Killing thousands of defenseless civilians is just a tragedy. Israel government is not fighting the hamas, it is fighting Palestine and all its people. In the end, we sadly can’t change anything as long as our politics doesn’t want to say anything but one thing is for sure, I won’t vote for Israel at Eurovision for a… Read more »

Yes and no. She might’ve won this year’s contest, but with literally every other song to have ever competed (or, in 2020’s case, would’ve competed) to be compared to, “Cha Cha Cha” came out on top here. I feel like on an existential level, at least as far as how the song’s been received by the fans, that’s also a big win.
