As we can see, the top four most viewed live performances from the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 were also the top four of the contest when it came to the points received on the night (albeit swapping Ukraine and Serbia’s positions).



The biggest riser when compared to their placing at Eurovision was the United Kingdom’s Scooch with ‘Flying the Flag for You’, who rose fifteen places from twenty-second to seventh.



Meanwhile, the biggest descender was Armenian entry Hayko’s ‘Anytime You Need’, which dropped thirteen places from eighth to twenty-first.


Also important to note, of the three grand finals we’ve looked at so far, this has been the second-most successful by view count, with just over 67 million views combined, compared to 2006’s 75 million views, compared to 2004’s 58 million views, and 2005’s 13 million.


Next week, we will take a look at the live performance view counts on YouTube for the Eurovision 2008 competitors.
