Original author: Ford Carter | Updated in 2023 and 2024 by Colleen Hetherington and Dale Roberts


Now the 2024 contest in Malmö is done, let's take a look at the current highest-scoring Eurovision songs of all time.


This is a list of total points received and skews to recent entries because of the new scoring system coming in for the 2016 Contest.


This list doesn't just feature winners, it also has a a few runner-ups, including one Australian entry just outside that must be mentioned.



Special mention: 11th: Dami Im – ‘Sound of Silence’ (511 points)



Internally selected by SBS, Dami Im represented Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm in 2016 with the song ‘Sound of Silence’. The entry received twelve sets of twelve points (nine sets from the jury vote and three sets from the televote).



10. Måneskin – ‘Zitti e buoni’ (524 points)



Selected through national final ‘Sanremo Music Festival’, Måneskin represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam in 2021 with the song ‘Zitti e buoni’. The entry received nine sets of twelve points (four sets from the jury vote and five sets from the televote).



9. Käärijä - Cha Cha Cha (526 points)



After winning the Finnish national selection UMK, Käärijä went into Eurovision as one of the favourites. He was extremely popular with the public, scoring the second-highest public vote of all time. In total, eighteen nations gave him twelves points in the public vote, however, only three did in the jury.



8. Netta – ‘Toy’ (529 points)



Selected through national final ‘HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion’, Netta represented Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon in 2018 with the song ‘Toy’. The entry received thirteen sets of twelve points (five sets from the jury vote and eight sets from the televote).



7. Jamala – ‘1944’ (534 points)



Selected through national final ‘Vidbir’, Jamala represented Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm in 2016 with the song ‘1944’. The entry received seventeen sets of twelve points (eleven sets from the jury vote and six sets from the televote).


6. Baby Lasagna - 'Rim Tim Tagi Dim' (546 points)



An unlucky loss to Croatia this year, most years this score would be enough to win.



5. Loreen – ‘Tattoo’ (583 points)



Selected through the Sweden's national selection Melodifestivalen, Loreen made her return to Eurovision after winning in 2012. 'Tatto'' won the contest with the second highest jury score of all time (340 points). In total, it scored fifteen sets of 12 points in the jury but none in the public vote. It did, however, score eight lots of 10 points from the public.


4. Nemo - 'The Code'’ (591 points)



The 2024 winner has an impressive score considering only 37 nations plus the rest of the world voted.
