    In the history of the contest *68 songs written by 124 songwriters have all been crowned as winners since 1956. Saturday's final will mark the 65th Eurovision, and so - in honour of that I've decided to run a tournament to decide the greatest song ever to appear in the Eurovision!

    The format is simple - all 68 winning songs will gain automatic entry into Round 1 - and we could just leave it at that and let them all fight it out for the Ultimate Eurovision winner... but where's the fun in that?

    So to bring about a bit of interest in the contest, I'm going to allow you all to nominate 5 songs each that did not, but maybe should have won the contest the year they appeared.

    We will then jumble them up into one big massive battle royale and the voting will commence as normal!

    Just in case you're wondering about the winners - they will all be included, see the link below. So no point nominating them!

    Depending on the number of nominations there may be a qualifying round for non-winners.


    Gonna leave this open for a week at least so get your selections in and we will run this off early next month.


    Will this see the previously predicted winner walking away with the gold?




    Or perhaps something different??


    *There will be 68 winners after Saturday night (presuming there is no tie again like in 1969 :P )

    Nice! Question... Can songs from 2020 be included?

    I haven't decided myself whether to take part or not, but there is a thread on Music where links to music related threads on other forums can be added. Kolido made use of it quite a bit. It's another way of getting flesh blood!

    I'm in, though a little embarrassed to say that the last time I watched it was when Norway won, with a pretty good tune iirc.

    It will be tough to narrow it down to just five songs, I'll need to think about this

    I've 3 non winners picked all from within the last decade- I'm sure there are older ones that I'm not thinking of but hey.
    I will be waiting until Saturday is over before I finalise the others... :D
