List Rules Vote up the best Eurovision Song Contest winners

Winners of the Eurovision Song Contest compete to represent their country over Eurovision week's live shows. Competitors have to both come out on top with public televoting and from a professional jury. The level of talent each contestant brings is always impressive, but who are the best winners of Eurovision? Help decide below!

With contestants ranging from solo artists to musical groups, the competition is fierce and expansive as musical artists compete for the honor of representing their country, and then against musicians from other countries. Countries themselves have to qualify for participation, based on how active they were in previous Eurovision voting. Even though many Eurovision Song Contest winners don't go on to become lasting household names, both ABBA and Celine Dion got their start at Eurovision.

Just like the original viewers who gave these musical artists their win, it's now your chance to vote up the best Eurovision winners.
