From 2015 to 2019, every time Australia competed in Eurovision, Australia’s Eurovision songs managed to chart in Australia and Europe. All entries have managed to reached the Top 20 on the Australian iTunes chart, with ‘Sound of Silence’ and ‘We Got Love’ reaching the No.1 spot.


Undeniably though, it would be Australia’s debut entry and then our impressive first runner up entry the year later that would make the biggest impact on the charts worldwide.


Australia’s debut in Eurovision with Guy Sebastian’s energetic performance of ‘Tonight Again’ left a lasting impression, reaching the Top 10 iTunes chart in eight countries. Guy Sebastian was held off the top spot on the Swedish iTunes chart by none other than Måns Zelmerlöw’s 2015 Eurovision winning song ‘Heroes’. Interestingly ‘Tonight Again’ managed to chart in the Caribbean with it reaching No.4 on iTunes in the The Bahamas’.


The Australian entry which made the biggest impression globally was Dami Im's ‘Sound of Silence’ which came in the runners up spot in 2016. The song charted in over 20 charts across Europe and Australia and reached the No. 1 spot on the iTunes chart in Australia, Lithuania and Malta. In Australia ‘Sound of Silence’ remained on the iTunes chart for 108 days the longest out of all the Australian entries. Dami Im also managed to reach the Top 10 in three national singles chart, in Iceland, Belgium, and a peaked at No.5 on the Australian ARIA charts.


It is great to see Australian acts get exposure on the charts worldwide all thanks to Eurovision.
