At the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, for the first time in history a woman has become a two-time champion as a performer. Sweden's Loreen, whose real name is Zineb Nora Talhaoui, won the great honor at Saturday's Grand Final in Liverpool, England, her ballad 'Tattoo' earning 583 points across the board. But this was Loreen's second win, as she previously won in 2012 with her song 'Euphoria.'  Though it's not the first time an artist has won twice (Johnny Logan of Ireland did it in 1980 and 1987), it's the first time a woman has done it. That means next year's competition will be held in Sweden!

The competition, which attracts a huge TV audience around the world each year, began back in 1956 and features singers representing countries across Europe and, in several cases, beyond. This year, for the first time in history, the winning country wasn't able to host the competition, as it was Ukraine who stole the show in 2022 with their entry 'Stefania' by the sensational Kalush Orchestra. Given the ongoing war devastating their home country, the UK hosted on their behalf.

As history has been made this year, why not take a look back at the best acts to grace the Eurovision stage in recent years? Click through to see a round-up of Euro-winners of the past two decades.
