Eurovision songs hit the charts
More than ten of the participating songs in this year's Eurovision Song Contest have made the sales, airplay or download charts internationally. The different European charts, like those in the UK or Germany, have seen more than five different entries charting altogether.
Most of the entries performed in Düsseldorf have reached their national charts, with several of them becoming big hits and topping their own singles chart, like Jedward's Lipstick in Ireland, Popular by Eric Saade in Sweden, Stella Mwangi's Haba Haba in Norway, Maja Keuc's Vanilija which represented Slovenia in its English version No One or Kati Wolf with What About My Dreams? in Hungary.
Others didn't reach the very top but were close, like Lena in Germany, Amaury Vassili in France, Anna Rossinelli in Switzerland, Estonia's Getter Jaani, Paradise Oskar from Finland or A Friend In London from Denmark, who were stopped at #2.
Precisely these songs have made the charts internationally as well, mostly thanks to the official download charts all over Europe, the UK entry I Can by Blue is the one that has gone further this year, reaching the top 10 in many territories, followed closely by Lipstick and also by the winning song from Azerbaijan, Running Scared by Ell/Nikki.
The Italian entry, Madness Of Love had been a home hit already after winning San Remo, and both the song and Raphael Gualazzi's album Reality And Fantasy have now entered the iTunes jazz charts accross Europe.
The Opening Act, Satellite by Stefan Raab feat. Lena, also made the German singles chart, where we can still find last year's interval act Glow by Madcon, spending now more than 50 weeks among the biggest selling songs in Germany.
The list is long and it goes on: Loucas Yiorkas & Stereo Mike reached #1 in the iTunes chart in Greece, Musiqq peaked at #3 in Latvia. Poli Genova with Na Inat in Bulgaria, Twiins' I'm Still Alive in Slovakia and A Luta É Alegria with Homens Da Luta in Portugal made the top 5 inside their frontiers. Lucía Pérez re-enters the Spanish charts after having placed inside the top 20.
The success of the songs, just like the points in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, is being well distributed. To witness it, the biggest chart success of the year, the official compilation containing all 43 songs. It has topped the compilation charts in many countries, mainly Germany, Sweden or Denmark and you can still buy it or download it in our official shop.
We wish further success to all of these artists in their upcoming projects.
