This article is an updated version of Eurovision Prediction: A history posted in December 2017.
Over the next few months, Eurovision Prediction will take place for the sixth 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 five 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.
