Ruslana was a phenomenon in 2004. Forget the song (it was ok). She won the contest just with her looks and her act on stage. You really have to watch this.

I have a question:

Option #24 The Eurovision Song Contest (2014 TV Special)

Conchita Wurst - Is he/she a woman or a man or what? I have never heard of him/her.

Waterloo will take this in a LANDSLIDE.

I always find it funny that somehow Israel (and Morroco for one year) is considered part of Europe for this contest.

One of the most iconic performances in the history of pop music: "Waterloo" in 1974. It launched ABBA's career spanning not more than 8 years. In total, ABBA sold more than 500 million records.

Over the years, there have been 61 winners in total. I selected the ones that in my view became the most popular internationally, as well as the most notorious. But you're right, it's a choice.

But why not Heroes from 2015 or Fairytale from 2009? You can't say they weren't popular internationally. And those are my 2 personal favorites I can't vote for anyone else.

I like French chansons, so this is my favorite, two years before ABBA. In fact, Vicky Leandros is a Greek-German singer, who represented Luxembourg at the time. She sold more than 150 million albums in her career, so not only ABBA became famous from winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

My overall favorite is probably 'Dansevise' from 1963, but I understand that you can't include all of them.

Good song! I already wanted to put it in the list and had watched it on Youtube, but in the end I kept it in reserve. I have now added it to the list.

At that time, they were still working with a podium for the top 3 just like at the Olympic games. Awesome!

The last 10 finalists of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest are known. Surprisingly Ireland is not qualified. This Saturday the Grand Final. Here's my bet: 1) Italy, 2) Romania and 3) Moldova. Interesting fact I heard on CNN today: because the country is still involved in an armed conflict in East Ukraine, the event - which takes place in Kiev, hundreds of miles away from the conflict - is protected by 16,000 (!) security officers.

Portugal wins the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. It's the first time ever for Portugal to win in the 62-year history of Eurosong.
