Eurovision 2020 YouTube and Spotify rankings revisited - End of the year




Over the year in May to July we took a look at all the Eurovision 2020 song play counts and views through Spotify and YouTube, to see which songs have been most popular with listeners and watchers. Now it is the end of 2020, and five months on, we revisit and see which songs are the most popular with listeners and watchers.

There are two songs which dominated Spotify and YouTube for most of the year, with one clear winner that is unbeatable due to its record breaking views on YouTube.


Here are the current Top 10 Spotify and YouTube rankings since the songs were released, and the play counts from Jul 26 to Dec 27.


We have also included a joint Spotify and YouTube play count rank for Eurovision songs 2020 as of Dec 27.
