As we gear up for the 19th Eurovision Young Musicians, it is time to look back on the previous 18 winners. As we can only guess which participant is headed for victory next month, we take a look at the leaderboard and reveal which country won no less than five times.

The Eurovision Young Musicians leaderboard shows a very diverse result. Participants out of ten countries have won the contest, with five countries winning the contest more than once.
