Will Mans Zelmerloew or Guy Sebastian win Eurovision Song Contest 2015?Reuters

Wiener Stadthalle, the multi-purpose convention centre and indoor arena in Vienna, Austria, is all set to host the 60th Eurovision Song Contest and music lovers across the globe are eagerly waiting for the declaration of winners.

Among the 27 countries lined up to compete in the finale, nine are previous winners. While Sweden, France and the United Kingdom top the list with five wins, Serbia, Montenegro, Latvia and Azerbaijan are quick winners.

Norway is the first country to secure more than 300 points, including 16 maximum scores, and Estonia is the first country from the erstwhile Soviet Union to have won in the competition in 2001. 

Greece, Romania, Russia and Azerbaijan have always been in the finals' list after the introduction of semi-finals. Elnur Hüseynov from Azerbaijan and Maraaya from Slovenia are returning participants. 

So, if the previous winners' list can be linked with this year's prediction list, which includes Sweden, Russia, Italy, Belgium and Australia, Sweden could be the winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2015 and the host for next year's annual song competition.

However, the musical event is witnessing a trend of first time winners since 2001, so chances of Australia, Slovenia, Romania, Russia, Greece, Belgium and Azerbaijan cannot be ignored. 

The musical event, which will be aired live on BBC One, will kick off with the performance of last year's winner and green room host Conchita Wurst at 8pm on Saturday, 23 May. She will sing "Building Bridges" along with the other three hosts, Alice Tumler, Mirjam Weichselbraun and Arabella Kiesbauer.
