Eurovision Winners by % of Available Points

This table calculates the percentage of available points that a song earned. So if a song got 50 points out a possible 200, that means they got 25% of the available points. Of course the higher the percentage, the higher the ranking.

This is considered to be the most accurate in terms of comparing Eurovision songs from various years and different voting systems.
