Since the first Eurovision in 1956, it has grown in popularity. Big name stars like Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Rita Ora have all performed in the longest-running annual international televised music show.
And 11 million people watched this year’s edition on Saturday night, as Swedish singer Loreen won with her song ‘Tattoo’.
This year, it was Liverpool’s turn to host the historic night following last year’s second-placed finish for the UK, courtesy of Sam Ryder with ‘Space Man’. Since then, the song has been streamed over 50 million times on Spotify.
Eurovision may be over this year but, for many, the party is still going on across Spotify. Here, we take a look at the top five most-listened to Eurovision songs from this year:
La Zarra’s song finished the lowest out of the songs on this list. Évidemment was only the 14th most popular by televoting and 16th most popular with the jury, which led to a 16th placed finish overall.
Despite a disappointing result from Eurovision, it was clearly well received by the public. France’s entry has already been listened to over nine million times on Spotify.
Evidemment will always have a special place in my heart, no matter the results. Im so happy to have discovered La Zarra's music through eurovision, love you so much ♥️♥️♥️ pic.twitter.com/2lnbUzUM8G

4) Cha Cha Cha
Finland’s entry was good enough for the silver medal at the competition, which was fitting as they were the second favourites prior to the finals.
Cha Cha Cha has been streamed 23.9 million times on Spotify. Käärijä received the highest number of votes from the public, with 376 points, but it was only good enough for fifth by the jury’s voting.
3) Queen of Kings
Norway’s entry Queen of Kings finished in fifth place. However, despite not making a podium place on the night, it makes third place for Spotify streams. At the time of writing, it has amassed over 47 million listens.
Alessandra’s song got the third most points for televoting, to go with the third most Spotify listens.
2) Due Vite
The second most-streamed song from this year’s Eurovision is Due Vite. Italy’s entry has been listened to over 50 million times on Spotify. Despite its popularity, it could only finish in fourth place for the final results, just 12 points off Israel who took home third.
Its points from televoting and the jury were very evenly split with 174 and 176 respectively.
This year’s winner has been very popular. Loreen’s song not only won the competition, but has been listened to over 60 million times on Spotify. This entry beat second-placed Finland by 57 votes, highlighting its popularity.
Sweden were the favourites going into the night and they certainly didn’t disappoint.
