The early years of the contest saw many wins for "traditional" Eurovision countries: France, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
However, the success of these countries has declined in recent decades; the Netherlands last won in ; France, in ; and Luxembourg, in Luxembourg last entered the contest in The first years of the 21st century produced numerous first-time winners, from both "new" and long-serving countries who had previously entered numerous times but without victories.
Every year from to inclusive, a country won for its first time. Estonia was the first post-Soviet country to win the competition in In , Turkey won for the first time.
In , Greece won for the first time, 15 years after the last Southern European country won, i. Italy in ; overall the South of Europe won the competition only six times seven if Serbia is included.
The winner was Finland 's Lordi , earning Finland's first win after having entered the contest for 45 years.
Ukraine , on the other hand, did not have to wait so long, winning with only their second entry in Also notably, although not the nation's first win, Conchita Wurst 's win in broke a year losing run for Austria.
The contest was won by Russia in Serbia won the very first year it entered as an independent state, in , with the Serbian-language ballad " Molitva ".
When Portugal won in , they ended a year run of entering without a win, beating Finland 's previous record of 45 years. Cyprus now holds this record, with 35 years without a win, achieving their highest score, Second, in , and Malta is the most successful country without a win, achieving two second places and two third places.
In , Norway won the contest with points — Alexander Rybak held the winning title with his song " Fairytale ".
His outstanding performance meant he had the highest total in the history of the competition, becoming the first competitor to score or more points, including 16 maximum scores.
This feat was emulated in , when Sweden won with points, but with a new record of 18 maximum scores. Russia placed second with points, becoming the first country to score more than points without winning.
In , the scoring system was changed, which meant that it was much easier to achieve over points — in fact, the winner — Jamala of Ukraine , achieved points, and all of top 9 scored or more points, and 25 of the 26 positions got their highest points ever.
This feat was then extended in when Salvador Sobral beat Ukraine's points record by points, in addition to Bulgaria beating the same score by 81 points.
However, had Portugal won under the previous voting system, it would still have had the highest total ever, with points, becoming the first competitor to score or more points, and would have set a new record of 20 maximum scores, beating Norway and Sweden, respectively.
In , Ukraine did not win either the jury vote or the televote, but won the contest with the highest combined vote. The televote was won by Russia and the jury vote by Australia.
In , eventual winner Israel won the televote but only came in third with the jury vote won by Austria. There have been a number of Eurovision artists and groups whose careers were directly launched into the spotlight following their win.
Several other winners were well-known artists who won the contest mid-career after they had already established themselves, including Katrina and the Waves , winners in with " Love Shine a Light ",  Lulu , winner in with " Boom Bang-a-Bang ", and Sandie Shaw , winner in with " Puppet on a String ".
Women have dominated the contest since its inception, either performing solo or as a member of a group on 50 of the 67 winning entries as of The most recent winner of the contest is Netta Barzilai who won the contest for Israel.
In , a concert television programme was held to commemorate the contest's twenty-fifth anniversary. The event, entitled Songs of Europe , took place in Mysen , Norway, featuring nearly all the winners of the contest, from to It was hosted by Rolf Kirkvaag and Titten Tei.
In , the EBU had agreed with the Danish broadcaster, DR , to produce a programme to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the contest.
The show, entitled Congratulations: A telephone vote was held to determine the most popular Eurovision song of all-time, which was won by the ABBA song " Waterloo " winner for Sweden in In , the EBU had decided again to commemorate the contest and agreed with the United Kingdom's broadcaster, BBC, to produce a show for the 60th anniversary of the contest, after evaluating several proposals from member broadcasters in regards to the anniversary celebration beyond the Contest in May.
The event was hosted by the British commentator for Eurovision, Graham Norton , and the host of the and Contest , Petra Mede.
The contest has been the subject of criticism regarding both its musical and political content. Most recently in and , Russia was heavily booed when it qualified for the final and received high points.
Because the songs play to such a diverse supranational audience with contrasting musical tastes, and countries want to be able to appeal to as many people as possible to gain votes, this has led to the music of the contest being characterised as a "mishmash of power ballads , ethnic rhythms and bubblegum pop ".
The contest has long been accused by some of political bias; the perception is that judges and televoters allocate points based on their nation's relationship to the other countries, rather than the musical merits of the songs.
A recent study in  presents a new methodological approach which allows an analysis of the whole time-line of the contest from to investigate collusion and the cluster blocks which have been changing.
It allows the analysis to find collusive associations over periods where the voting scheme is non-homogeneous in the time window chosen, and the results show a changing pattern in the collusive tendencies previously discussed.
The current research into the analysis of the voting patterns has been used in notable sources, such as the Economist, for investigating whether over 10 year periods such collusion is increasing or decreasing  .
As an example, Terry Wogan , the United Kingdom's well-known presenter of Eurovision since and one of the only three presenters mentioned by name during the contest proper  stood down from the BBC One 's broadcast in saying "The voting used to be about the songs.
Now it's about national prejudices. We [the United Kingdom] are on our own. We had a very good song, a very good singer, we came joint last.
I don't want to be presiding over another debacle". Another influential factor is the high proportion of expatriates and ethnic minorities living in certain countries.
Although judges and televoters cannot vote for their own country's entry, expatriates can vote for their country of origin. The total numbers of points to be distributed by each country are equal, irrespective of the country's population.
Thus voters in countries with larger populations have less power as individuals to influence the result of the contest than those voting in smaller countries.
For example, San Marino holds the same voting power as Russia despite the vast geographic and population differences between them.
To try to reduce the effect of voting blocs, national juries were re-introduced alongside televoting in the final in Although many of them used to give their 12 points to the same country each year, like Cyprus and Greece, it has been noticed that factors such as the sets of other high votes received 7, 8 or 10 points and the number of countries giving points to a specific entry, also highly affect the final positions.
An overview of the overall preference between countries that exhibits patterns of high score allocations is a question that appears frequently and recently a new study investigates the question of 'neglect' in the competition.
The concept of 'neglect' here is represented by countries which produce patterns of biased low score allocations to certain countries. Together these two patterns provide a better view of the competition's intrinsic country pair biases.
Result of such a study are presented in, . From the analysis it can be seen that countries which exhibit these biases do not receive a penalization from other participants and it presents itself as a means to accumulate more points by establishing these partnerships.
From onwards, the final and the semi-finals running order of the competing performances at the semi-finals and the final has been decided by the show's producers and then approved by the EBU Executive Supervisor and the Reference Group.
An "allocation draw" occurs for the final and the semi-finals with each nation drawing to perform in the first or second half.
The change in procedure was aimed to make the show more exciting and ensure that all contestants had a chance to stand out, preventing entries that are too similar from cancelling each other out.
Position 17 has the most victories, with 7. Positions 25, 26 and 27 have not won either, but there have been very few finals with that many participants.
A number of spin-offs and imitators of the Eurovision Song Contest have been produced over the years, some national and other international.

The last time Sweden was absent from the Eurovision final was in NRK argued that Oslo was the only city with the required capacity, venues, and infrastructure to hold the show.
Unlike the and the postcards, the postcards were based in simplicity but also included an innovative idea, they are shown like they could be seen right in the venue, over the crowd's heads.
The basic synopsis of the postcards is a numerous group of little golden balls the theme of the ESC forms the shape of each country.
Then, they move and form a screen where we can see a pre-recorded video of a little crowd from in a city of the country usually the capital about to perform supporting and cheering their act.
After that, a few seconds of the performer of the country getting ready in the stage are shown; and then, the balls form the flag of the country supported.
In the part of the shape of the country, there were little discrepancies: NRK announced the hosts of the contest on 10 March Solbakken and N'jie opened the three shows, introduced the artists, and reported from the green room during the voting, with Hasnaoui presenting the voting section and scoreboard announcements.
Each country's votes were determined by combining the jury votes and the televoting results; the countries with the top ten highest points in each semi-final then qualify to participate in the final of the contest.
The tenth semi-final place was then given to the country with the highest number of points from the jury's votes which had not already qualified for the final from the televoting results.
A number of fans began a campaign on social networking site Facebook for the return of an orchestra to the contest in Oslo, for the first time since , with more than 5, people joining  An orchestra, which had been used since the first contest in , was dropped after the contest due to rapid developments in music technology, which made backing tracks more useful.

The draw also determined in which Semi Final the automatic finalists voted in. Wolfgang Lorenz, the programme director of the Austrian broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk ORF , informed Austria would not take part in the competition stating that the contest has been "ruined by the regulations".
Thus they were getting ready to debut in , considering a national final concept similar to the German version of the Idol series — Deutschland sucht den Superstar DSDS.
The broadcaster will now look at other options for funding EBU membership in the future. Because their debut was rejected because Wales is not a sovereign state and the BBC has the exclusive right to represent the United Kingdom.
From July to December , five countries who participated in the contest announced their withdrawal, and non-participation in the contest.
