History

The first ever Melodivision Song Contest started on 8th of May 2016 when Spyros & Tasos decided to open an international music contest only for Instagram users. It was held in the capital city of the United Kingdom, London. Poland was the first ever country to win. The voting system has been taken from the Eurovision Song Contest. Each country awards 12 points to their favourite song, 10 for thr 2nd favourite and 8-1 for 3rd-10th respectively. The winner is traditionally set to be the host of the following edition. 19 nations were taking part in the first edition with 19 different songs. The biggest amount of countries that participated at once currently stands at 54.


During the 15th edition, the team revealed their story which correlated to the slogan "Telling Stories":

"It was May. @eurovision_gre sent a message to @greeceeurovision (@txsosisc now): "Would you like to create a contest with me?" No more words just a copy and paste from Melodifestivalen and done. At 6th of May the first final of Melodivision took place at United Kingdom.

Wasn't that professional but still we tried and we were always trying our best, because we loved what we were doing. As the contest was becoming bigger team had two arrivals. @Ivo_esc who later left but still gave a lot to this contest and also created the chat in WhatsApp. He (Ivo) entered with @esc_albania who is still hear hosting the shows with the best way!

Following Ivos withdrawal @esc_bih and @greeceesc , two other great members and persons became part of the team. And this is the latest synthesis of msc team and we want to say a big thanks to these people who worked and work hard for this contest. However, the biggest thanks belongs to you, since because you are hear and trying to improve. Because we love music and interaction with people from other nations."

At the end of edition 19, Timos (@greeceesc) decided to leave the team.

After edition 21 ended, Tasos (@txsosisc) decided to leave the team. 2 people replaced him - Felix (@esc_disgustang) & Nick (@eisc_evangeline)
