(All the YouTube counts are based on the videos through the Official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel.)


Out of the songs from Eurovision 2015 'Heroes' dominates both Spotify and YouTube. On Spotify the Swedish song has nearly 100 millions views more than second in the list, 'Grande amore'. When it comes to combined play counts and views 'Heroes' has accumulated more than three times the amount of second placed 'A Million Voices'.


The biggest jump into the top 10, compared to their Eurovision final placing, is Spain's 'Amanecer'. It ranks in 8th place in our list compared to finishing in 21st place at the Eurovision final. It beat three other songs which finished in the top 10 in Vienna.



The highest ranked entry from semi final 1 in our list is 'Walk Along' by Trijntje which came in at 18th place. At Eurovision the song failed to qualify to the final and came in 14th place in its semi final.



The highest placed song from the semi final 2 is Iceland's 'Unbroken'. It may have finished in 15th place at Eurovision in semi final 2, but in our list it reached the 30th place.



Australia's debut entry, 'Tonight Again' faired very well, reaching the Top 5 of the most played Eurovision 2015 songs on Spotify and the Top 10 most viewed Eurovision 2015 entries on YouTube. It came in at an overall place of 6th in our ranking.



Next week we look at how Dami Im fairs on Spotify and YouTube compared to her Eurovision 2016 competitors.
