Looking back at the Eurovision Top 250: Results from 2012



It is that time of the year where Eurovision fans vote for their all time favourite Eurovision songs in the annual Eurovision Top 250 (ESC 250).


Every New Year's Eve, Eurovision fans across the globe tune into ESC Radio to hear the Top 250 Eurovision songs voted by fans. The poll has been running since 2007 (started by 12points.tv) with the voting component organised by Belgian Eurovision site Songfestival.be. Vote for your top 10 favourite Eurovision songs ever on the songfestival.be website here.


We take a look back at the fifth ever edition of the Eurovision Top 250 in 2012. The voting was run by the now defunct Eurovision site 12points.tv.


The fifth Eurovision song to be voted No.1 on the Eurovision Top 250 is Sweden's Loreen with 'Euphoria'. For a whole decade now no other song has been able to knock off Euphoria from the No.1 spot, making it the most popular Eurovision entry by Eurovision fans ever!
