Euphoria wins ESC250 for the seventh straight year
The annual ESC250 countdown is over for another year and Loreen and 'Euphoria' has taken out the crown yet again!
With 6113 points she beat Eleni Foureira's 'Fuego' who was a gallant runner-up with 4631 points and 2017 Eurovision winner 'Amar pelos dois' was in third with 2988 points.
The countdown is the top 250 Eurovision songs of all time and broadcast live by online station ESCRadio. It is based on the votes of thousands of Eurovision fans worldwide.
In one shock result, this year's winner 'Toy' could only finish 23rd with 1355 points. The last three Eurovision winners have finished 2nd, 4th and 5th.
Australia's Dami Im moved up 11 places to 19th, still not as high as her peak of no.13 in 2016. Jessica Mauboy with 'We Got Love' finished a respectable 127th and Guy Sebastian kept his four year run of making the list in 213th. Isaiah Firebrace unfortunately didn't make the 250.
Australian Gina G who represtented the UK in 1996 came 78th with 'Ooh aah... Just a Little Bit'.
