Chanel breaks Loreen’s ESC250 winning streak

From 7th November to 4th December, Eurovision fans around the globe were invited by Belgian website songfestival.be to vote for their favourite songs from the entire 67 year history of the Contest. The results over the 10,000+ voters aired all day on New Year’s Eve on ESC Radio.

When voting opened in November, a leaked update showed Chanel’s SloMo far in the lead of the early voting. There were also allegations that Spanish fans were spamming the voting platform to give Chanel the victory. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we have a new winner this year.

Loreen’s 2012 hit Euphoria had topped the annual fan vote for the last ten consecutive years. Yet it is SloMo by Chanel that has won the 2022 edition of ESC250!

While the full detailed results are not yet available, in the 2021 vote, Loreen won and scored 17,292 points from fans, whereas runner-up Zitti e buoni (2022) got 14,828 points – a difference of 2,464 points! While we wait for the detailed results, the poll’s organizers have teased some interesting statistics about this year’s results.

This year’s biggest gainer from 2021 to 2022 was The Netherlands’ 1978 entry Harmony – “‘t Is O.K.”. Incredibly, this song had 0 points last year (tied for 1,582nd place) rose 1,332 places to 250th in 2022!
