Eurovision 2017’s Most Popular Songs On Spotify

With much of Europe going Eurovision crazy over the last couple of weeks, many turned to Spotify to predict how the finals of the contest would play out. Spotify have released a chart which gives an indication of which songs have been the most popular across the continent in the lead up to the contest.

Spotify took data from each individual country with voting power (where Spotify is available) and ranked the Eurovision entries in order of popularity. They obviously excluded each entrant’s home country! They used these findings to award points and then combined the figures to compile these charts.

Streams from the two weeks before the final were used to predict the following top 10:

  1. Nathan Trent –Running On Air (Austria)
  2. Anja Nissen– Where I Am (Denmark)
  3. Blanche –City Lights (Belgium)
  4. Robin Bengtsson– I Can’t Go On (Sweden)
  5. Isaiah – Don’t Come Easy (Australia)
  6. Kasia Moś– Flashlight (Poland)
  7. JOWST – Grab The Moment (Norway)
  8. Kristian Kristov– Beautiful Mess (Bulgaria)
  9. Salvador Sobral– Amar Pelos Dois (Portugal)
  10. Dihaj– Skeletons (Azerbaijan)

Spotify also compiled a chart of most Eurovision obsessed countries, basing this on the number of streams from users in the competing countries.

  1. Spain
  2. Sweden
  3. United Kingdom
  4. Netherlands
  5. Finland
  6. Norway
  7. Italy
  8. Germany
  9. Poland
  10. Iceland

They also compiled a list of the top 5 songs according to UK fans. Of course, the UK entrant, Lucie Jones, does not feature on this list because as we all know, you are not allowed to vote for your own country so her streams were omitted.

  1. Anja Nissen– Where I Am (Denmark)
  2. Nathan Trent– Running On Air (Austria)
  3. Kasia Moś– Flashlight (Poland)
  4. Isaiah– Don’t Come Easy (Australia)
  5. Blanche –City Lights (Belgium)

The results of the contest are based on a combination of the public vote and points awarded by a jury of music industry professionals from each country. Interestingly, Austria came last in the telephone voting with zero points awarded even though they came top in Spotify’s streaming chart. Similarly, Australia performed poorly despite being one of the top streamed songs, while Moldova, who did not feature in the streaming chart performed well in the telephone vote. Which opens the discussion again on whether politics play a part in how people vote. Another view is that Eurovision isn’t just about the song. It’s about the presentation and the performance. The visual element is clearly very important.

The official Eurovision playlist is on Spotify now and features all this year’s entrants from the final in Kiev. Did you stream any of the songs before the contest and did it match how you voted?
