Leading 10 countries with the most Eurovision Song Contest wins as of 2019 The Eurovision song contest first began in 1956 with seven countries contesting. Since its beginning, a total of 52 countries have participated in the hopes of becoming a champion. Of all the countries that have sung their lungs out for the coveted prize, Ireland have won the competition more than any. As of 2019, Ireland has taken the crown a total of seven times. Across Europe, millions of individuals tune in to watch the contest.
What makes a winner?

Between 1956 and 2019, solo artists have won the competition a total of 18 times. The most successful number of artists to have on stage is six. With over double the number of wins, the most successful language for singers to use is English, and if you think the Eurovision is only based on a singer's ability then you may well be wrong. It turns out wearing white has brought more victories than any other color.

Eurovision participation

As of 2019, a total of six European countries have participated more than sixty times in the Eurovision song contest. There does appear to be a waning in the popularity of the contest as even Germany, which traditionally has the highest viewer rates in Europe has seen an overall decline in the number of people tuning in.
