#ESC250 launches tonight for 2019!

Yes, it’s that time of year again! Fans from around the world are preparing their lists as the voting will open tonight for this year’s edition of ESC250. Will this year’s champion, Duncan Laurence, impact the top of the scoreboard or will Loreen remain the fan favourite?

Have your say

The format is simple: all you need to do is select your ten favourite Eurovision songs of all time. Then, the ESC250 team will combine your votes with everyone else’s to assemble this year’s hit list.

2019 is the eleventh year that Eurovision Top 250 has been held and for the past seven years, Loreen has been the victorious artist winning every year since 2012 with her Eurovision-winning “Euphoria”.
