EUROVISION WINNERS 1956 -2006

Below you can find a list of winners of the Eurovision Song Contest from 1956 to 2005. In the fifty years of the competition's history there have been fifty three winning songs, as there was a four way tie in 1969. In total twenty two countries have won the contest. Uniquely for the last six years the competition has been won by countries achieving their first victory. I am currently working on upgrading the video files of all the winners and these should be available soon.
