This article is an updated version of The history of Eurovision Prediction posted in November 2019.
Over the next few months, Eurovision Prediction will take place for the EIGHTH time! That’s right, unlike the contest itself, we have an unbroken run (too soon?). Although we’re potentially facing an…um…leaner national final season, there will still be plenty to predict in the coming months. Although we have our reliable regulars who play each year, here’s a condensed history of the past seven editions, in time for the new edition!
Starting with our humble beginnings…
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! 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.
The full leaderboard for this year is included below:
