During last weeks we've been showing you the iTunes charts as a immediate success example for Eurovision Songs. Since iTunes is updated everyday and it is only a sum of the sellings in that digital store we must focus in the official charts of every country to understand the success of a Eurovision song.
Just one week before Eurovision, the first popularity and selling results are now available. It would be really bad if this year ESC songs won't be in any chart but that's not the case since we find many Eurovision entries in the european charts.
In the official chart of 10 countries (remember that not all countries has official charts) we find Frans placing 10 in Sweden, 12 in Germany and 7 in Finland. The other case of success comes from Australia due to Dami Im that is charting in 6 countries, just like Sergey Lazarev. If Dami Im's best place is 17th in Finland, Lazarev peaked 17 in the same chart as is best european place. Amir is second in France and we can find him in 4 official charts.
What about the winner? Jamala is only in 3 charts, peaking 27 in Poland, 49 in France, 46 in Sweden and 17 in Ukraine.
Is it about promotion? Maybe in the radios, but the Eurovision Song Contest seems to be the best platform to promote a song internationally for a newcomer! Who will know in France or Sweden who Poli Genova is? or in Sweden and France about Barei?
Interesting fact is to find Margaret (the polish runner up) being 34 in Poland and 40 in Sweden!
