Australia's Top 25 Eurovision songs by points



Since Australia arrived at Eurovision in 2015, the Aussie public and our juries have been able to vote on 152 songs across six Contests.


But which ones were our favourites at the time of voting?


We've gone over the scoring since 2015 to find out the Top 25 based on points received by Australia.


A few things to note before we begin the countdown:


-We have separated the jury and televote scores in 2015 to follow the voting format from 2016 and beyond

-Any songs on the same points were split by the tiebreak of who did better with the public.


So without further ado, let's look at the Top 25 songs!


=24. Sweden: Robin Bengtsson - 'I Can't Go On' (2017)

12 points (6 points jury / 6 points public)

1. Belgium: Laura Tesoro - 'What's the Pressure' (2016)

24 points (12 points jury / 12 points public)



So, in what would be a surprise to many readers, the Belgian song from Laura Tesoro received 24 points from Australia in 2016.


The song finished in only 10th at the Contest, which is a very respectable placing, but when you consider it is the only song Australia has ever given maximum points to, it is a little unusual!


Not only did she score 24 points in the Grand Final, but she also scored 24 points in the semi-final giving her a perfect 48 points!


Sweden had the most entries in the Top 25 with three songs, while Italy, France, Bulgaria and Iceland all had two each.


The rest


"What about *that* song?" I hear you all scream...

Well some big songs did miss this list including:


France: Barbara Pravi - 'Voila' (2021) - 11 points

Ukraine: Jamala - '1944' (2016) - 10 points

Cyprus: Eleni Foureira - 'Fuego' (2018) - 7 points

Russia: Sergey Lazarev - 'You Are the Only One' (2015) - 5 points


Also, a shout out to some very typical "Australian" taste with these songs just missing the cut:


Romania: Ilinca & Alex Forea - 'Yodel It' (2017) - 10 points

Serbia: Bojana Stamenov - 'Beauty Never Lies' (2015) - 10 points

Denmark: Rasmussen - 'Higher Ground' (2018) - 10 points

So who will grab the most points off Australia this year? Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Spain, UK, Norway or someone else?


Who knows!?! Tune in to the Contest in May to find out!
