BACKGROUND

To Celebrate 50 Years of Eurovision, Sechuk.com gave visitors the chance to vote on the best performing songs from each of the 44 Nations that have taken part 1956-2005. 300 people took up the challenge!

The provisional list was changed after the results of the 2005 Contest in Kyiv. Greece, Romania and Belarus registered their best Eurovision result in 2005. National OGAE Fan Clubs also had a chance to change their listed song, with several of them holding a Club vote to determine the best entry for their country (eg: Italy, Sweden, Finland and Malta).

Voting ran from 17 June to midnight on 05 August 2005.
