It is Eurovision time. For people from other continents, it may not be so meaningful but for Europeans, this song contest is a great time to come together and share one evening (actually couple evenings considering the road to the finals). European countries also take their time nationally before Eurovision to decide on the song that will represent their country. There are debates about the evaluation and scoring system of the finals. Because things can get a little political with neighboring countries giving full points for each other. Anyway, Eurovision is a joyful event.

In the video above, you can find all the winning songs from 1956 to 2017, and here is the list of them,
