to get to know? These countries have achieved the greatest number of victories in the economic and social field

  • Which country has won the ESC the most times?
  • He finished first a total of seven times
  • Other countries are also multiple ESC winners

The Eurovision Song Contest has existed since 1956. Over the years, countless countries have competed against each other to win the coveted title. In the past, some countries were more successful and some were not.

Incredible: This country has won the ECOSOC title seven times

Most ESC wins to date Ireland celebrate. In 1970, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1996 the Europeans ranked the island first, with seven victories.

The amazing thing: Johnny Logan won his home country’s title twice, in 1980 and 1987. A little later, Ireland won the ESC title again – three years in a row: 1992, 1993 and 1994.

Nation with second most ESC wins: A cult squad won the title for the first time

Close to Ireland as the entrant with the most ESC wins is Sweden. The Scandinavian country has already claimed first place six times (1974, 1984, 1991, 1999, 2012 and 2015).

The Swedes owe their first victory in the Eurovision Song Contest, which was then known as the “Grand Prix Eurovision de la Chanson”, to ABBA. And the appearances of Lauren (2012) and Mance Zelmerlow (2015) are still not forgotten.
