Eurovision Prediction: A history!

Over the next few months, Eurovision Prediction will take place for the fifth time! We’re sure that many of our players in Eurovision Prediction won’t be playing for the first time. However, we’re also sure that we’ll get some of you joining us for their first attempt at everyone’s favourite Eurovision game! So here is a look at the history of the first four editions of Eurovision Prediction, just in time for the new edition to begin!


The first edition of Eurovision Prediction took place in the run-up to the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. A total of 36 players took part in the game, five of which were involved in the organisation of the competition. Therefore, 31 of you were eligible to be present on the main leaderboard and it was Arianna Brooke who was the game’s first ever winner!
Samantha Ross finished as runner-up, which was to be the first of four consecutive top 11 finishes – will it be a fifth this time around? Taking the bronze medal was Jack Cuffe, now part of our very own ESCXTRA team! Check out the full top 10 below:

Eurovision Prediction 2015 was even more popular than its debut year, with an impressive 58 of you taking part. Anthony, the founder of fellow Eurovision fansite Eurovoix, was the competition’s second champion! Furthermore, Holger and Matthew A. completed the podium.

Now, if you want to look at the full detailed scoreboard from 2015, the link you need is in the embedded tweet below!


Eurovision Prediction 2016 is the biggest edition of the game to date. An astonishing 82 of you played. 2016 also saw the closest battle for the victory that the game has seen thus far. @jacqueslecube became the third Eurovision Prediction champion by the narrowest of margins possible, short of an exact tie of course!
Unfortunately, @Sandruschkaa was the unlucky player to miss out on victory. Nevertheless, 2nd place in a field of 82 is certainly an impressive achievement! @Johanna7r and @kyliewilson tied for third, breaking the 200 points barrier. Meanwhile, 2014 champion @Arianna483 made a return to the top 10.

So what will Eurovision Prediction 2018 bring? Will all of our previous champions return to attempt to claim a second victory? Or perhaps it’ll be a brand new player that will show our veterans exactly what they should be doing!
Round one of Eurovision Prediction 2018 is OPEN NOW and the deadline for predictions is on December 23rd at 4pm CET. Don’t miss out!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
