The story of Eurovision Prediction so far: 2014-2021

This article is an updated version of The history of Eurovision Prediction most recently posted in November 2020.

Over the next few months, Eurovision Prediction will take place for the 9th time! That’s right, unlike the contest itself, we have an unbroken run… Although we have our reliable regulars who play each year, here’s a condensed history of the past eight editions, in time for the new edition beginning in just TWO weeks!

Let’s start with our humble beginnings and as you can see from our logo montage above, the game began as a little spin-off of Glen Bartlett’s radio station W12P…

2014

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. Taking the bronze medal was Jack Cuffe! Check out the full top 10 below:

2016

Eurovision Prediction 2016 was the biggest edition of the game to date at the time. An astonishing 82 of you played. 2016 also saw the closest battle for the victory that the game had 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.
