Eleni Netta Michael Eurovision 2018 acts charts

In the aftermath of last weekend’s grand final, Eurovision 2018 artists have started climbing the charts all over Europe. 

Below are just some of the countries that are all aboard this year’s Eurovision ship. Keep in mind, we don’t list every country where an act is charting, nor do we mention every act. Some markets don’t publish any form of singles charts while others only release airplay charts. And then of course, several charts have yet to be updated for this week.

Ireland

After four years in a non-qualification wilderness, Ireland returned to the grand final with a bang. At one point bookies were even pegging Ryan O’Shaughnessy as third favourite to take the 2018 crown. While that didn’t pan out on the night, Ryan has achieved the highest charting Irish Eurovision entry since Ryan Dolan’s “Only Love Survives” in 2013. “Together” enters the chart at #17. Israel’s Netta and Cyprus’ Eleni Foureira also appear further down the listing.

#17 Ryan O’Shaughnessy “Together” (Ireland)
#50 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)
#63 Netta “Toy” (Israel)

Belgium

Local hopeful SENNEK may have crashed out unexpectedly in the semis, but the Belgian record buying public still had plenty of love for “A Matter Of Time”… at least in Flanders. The track reaches a new peak of #9 in this week’s chart. However, the songstress fails to dent the main chart in French-speaking Wallonia. Instead, the big Eurovision hit there belongs to France’s Madame Monsieur and “Mercy”, who are at a new high of #10. The Flemish were also feeling this year’s winner, with “Toy” making the top 30.

Flanders:

#9 SENNEK “A Matter Of Time” (Belgium)
#29 Netta “Toy” (Israel)

Wallonia:

#10 Madame Monsieur “Mercy” (France)

Sweden

It’s perhaps the country that’s most obsessed with Eurovision. Back in March, almost all the entries in its national selection graced the charts, so it’s hardly surprising to find no less than ten tracks from Lisbon inside Sweden’s top 100. The highest charting is Israel’s Netta at #5, while homeboy Benjamin Ingrosso is at #11 in his 12th week in the chart. “Dance You Off” previously peaked at #1. Cyprus’ Eleni Foureira isn’t far behind at #15 and Denmark’s Rasmussen and Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef also break the top 30.

#5 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#11 Benjamin Ingrosso “Dance You Off” (Sweden)
#15 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)
#21 Mikolas Josef “Lie To Me” (Czech Republic)
#29 Rasmussen “Higher Ground” (Denmark)
#32 Michael Schulte “You Let Me Walk Alone” (Germany)
#55 Cesár Sampson “Nobody But You” (Austria)
#58 Alexander Rybak “That’s How You Write A Song” (Norway)
#86 Jessica Mauboy “We Got Love” (Australia)
#90 Madame Monsieur “Mercy” (France)

They join Melodifestivalen efforts from Samir & Viktor, Mendez and FELIX SANDMAN, which remain in the charts after almost three months.

United Kingdom

Of all 43 competing competing countries, the UK is arguably the hardest market to crack. But this year three entries have managed to sneak into the Official Singles Chart Top 100. Highest is Israel’s Netta at #49. Hot on her heels is the UK’s own SuRie at #50, making “Storm” the highest charting UK entry since Molly’s “Children Of The Universe in 2014. Cyprus’ Eleni is at #64.

#49 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#50 SuRie “Storm” (United Kingdom)
#64 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)

The official chart includes both streaming and sales. However, if you strip out streaming figures, a very impressive thirteen entries make the cut.

#15 SuRie “Storm” (United Kingdom)
#24 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#27 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)
#34 Rasmussen “Higher Ground” (Denmark)
#43 Michal Schulte “You Let Me Walk Alone” (Germany)
#52 Ryan O’Shaughnessy “Together” (Ireland)
#53 Mikolas Josef “Lie To Me” (Czech Republic)
#58 Jessica Mauboy “We Got Love” (Australia)
#61 Benjamin Ingrosso “Dance You Off” (Sweden)
#62 Cesár Sampson “Nobody But You” (Austria)
#70 Waylon “Outlaw In ‘Em” (Netherlands)
#94 Ieva Zasimauskaite “When We’re Old” (Lithuania)
#100 Alexander Rybak “That’s How You Write A Song” (Norway)

However, no Eurovision entries make the streaming top 100.

Netherlands

In 2014, he enjoyed massive chart and song contest success with The Common Linnets. However, it wasn’t second time lucky for the cantankerous Waylon with “Outlaw In ‘Em” enjoying only moderate success by comparison. The country rock number lands at #40 in the Dutch top 100. Netta — who Waylon publicly slated after her victory — also charts, as do Michael Schulte and Eleni Foureira.

#40 Waylon “Outlaw In ‘Em” (Netherlands)
#60 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#83 Michael Schulte “You Let Me Walk Alone” (Germany)
#96 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)

Germany

Despite winning the contest as recently as 2010, Germany had become more accustomed to the bottom end of the scoreboard of late. But Michael Schulte changed all that, earning the country its best result since Lena’s victory. And he’s also been rewarded in the charts. “You Let Me Walk Alone” is at #3, making Michael the highest charting German act since Roman Lob in 2012. Netta and Mikolas Josef make the top 30 while Eleni Foureira, Rasmussen and César Sampson are inside the top 100.

#3 Michael Schulte “You Let Me Walk Alone” (Germany)
#19 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#29 Mikolas Josef “Lie To Me” (Czech Republic)
#81 Eleni Foureira (Cyprus)
#88 Rasmussen “Higher Ground” (Denmark)
#93 Cesár Sampson “Nobody But You” (Austria)

Norway

Alexander Rybak was long tipped to bring another win for Norway, but he fell short of the mark last Saturday. And he did so in the charts too, with Netta and Eleni Foureira making the country’s top 40 ahead of him.

#19 Netta “Toy” (Israel)
#24 Eleni Foureira “Fuego” (Cyprus)

Other

Both countries enjoyed top five finishes, but it appears Italy and Austria are only interested in their own. At #56, Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro are the sole Eurovision 2018 act in this week’s Italian charts. “Non mi avete fatto niente” previously peaked at #2. Likewise, Cesár Sampson is the only singer from last week’s spectacular to grace the Austrian charts. He debuts at #64.

Italy:

#56 Meta & Fabrizio Moro “Non mi avete fatto niente” (Italy)

Austria:

#64 Cesár Sampson “Nobody But You” (Austria)

Only big Eurovision countries are in charts. No one would chart something from Slovenia, right?

Dance You Off has never been #1 in Sweden because Every Single Day was big leading in Sweden in March.
That was the right choice and I guess Swedes know that now xD

Every Single Day would have flopped harder than O Jardim, a dull forgettable ballad for little girls

Portugal got a bad running order, no one from 2, 3 or 8th position can objectively dream to get a good score. Same for the acts before or after commercial breaks, first half and so on. I mean, just go back to drawing, at least there are no ill feelings or favoritism theories. I don’t really care as much for 4 ballads in a row as I care for some transparency. I do appreciate some acts need more time to be prepared and good acts will find their way to the victory, but for most performances the running order matters

O Jardim wasn’t bad, but I felt musically it was a little weak, It could have used some stings to elevate it a bit.

Denis

Well, they both had a number 1 trending video on YouTub with the song “Tror du han bryr sig. . And that song is now 6 on Spotify, after being at the top for some weeks

Marc

Ik. “Tror du han bryr sig” is very good.
Felix makes the songs better than it was tho.
Also Swedish wins English 🙂

Denis

Well, their collaboration “Tror du han bry sig´” was trending as number 1 on YouTube for some time. And it’s currently 6 on Spotify after being on the top.

off topic: the german broadcaster NDR opened allready the selection process for Israel 2019. the selection process will be similar to the 2018 process and Michael Schulte himself and Barbara Schöneberger (Spokesperson of the german juryresults) called allready for applications from now on.

Never understood why Scotland needs its own chart

Jonathan
Guest

Because England, Scotland, and Wales are equal countries – not states – within the United Kingdom. They all have their own independent music charts which together form the Official UK Chart. However, both charts are valid on their own because artists can release their songs just in England or in Scotland or in Wales, but when a song is released and manages to chart in all of them, then it classifies as charting in the UK.

Polegend Godgarina
Guest

It’s useless tho – the UK chart includes Scotland, and Scotland’s chart is irrelevant digital sales only anyway.

Daniel
Guest

Your stupid brain is useless because Scotland’s Official Chart comprises of music sales in all formats – physical, digital, airplay, stream, etc.

Darth Thulhu

Thanks for doing the yeoman’s work on compiling all this information! On a related note, do nations in East Europe not do charting the same way, or is there less frequent updating among them, or some other barrier? I imagine that if relevant charts exist, My Lucky Day has to be charting in Romania and Moldova and Russia, for example.

Polegend Godgarina
Guest

There’s an airplay-only chart for Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovenia and Croatia. Greece has sales+streaming, while Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia have charts both for airplay and for song sales+streams.

At least they are getting a weekly spin at some insignificant charts. Such rubbish Eurovision stuff will never enter the U.S. Billboard and it certainly will never make it higher than #50 in the UK – and that rarely and barely, once in 10-15 years.

James

It took a while for K-Pop acts to get themselves in the Billboard charts so who knows?

Gina G was #12 in the Billboard chart.

OMG! I loved Gina G. I always remember Ooh ahh just a little bit, fighting for N/o 1 on the UK charts and then on the eurovision final that year, our commentator Terry Wogan announced just before her performance that she would be N/o1 on the singles chart tomorrow! She’d knocked George Michael’s Fastlove from the pole position and a week later she was replaced by the song “3 lions” by the lightning seeds. the euro 96 football anthem for England. This was long before streaming and downloads were counted towards the chart and when we all had to shop… Read more »

@Pavel: Like I said, that happens once in 10-15 years and only with the UK entries. Other ones stand no chance, of course. Gina G did that 22 years ago, and she represented the UK in Eurovision, of course. If a song enters the top 10 in the UK, it does also enter the top 10 in the US. Peak positions may differ for one to two at most but no Eurovision artist other than the UK ones has ever had such luck and they never will.

I get that entering the US Billboard would be an achievement, but I don’t see why it should be seen as the supreme reward. You’re right, everything else is just insignificant, and there are no rubbish songs in the US Billboard either.

Polegend Godgarina

The Billboard chart is filled with trash more than ever with all those mumble rappers.

Indeed.

Eurovision songs charting in the US are rare and therefore an achievement for many ESC artists. The closest one that came close was Margaret with Cool Me Down but even then she was just the runner up. Also, Lo Malo, which came 3rd in the Spanish selection, is making waves in the US Latino Community so it’s a matter of time before it enters on one of the Billboard charts. And just recently, the song I Let You Run Away (Runner Up in Hungary) has been remixed by Trap Nation (An American remix channel responsible for Mike Posner’s remix of… Read more »

Eurovision should do mumble rap, Billboard chart is melting over those rubbish acts like Lil Pump

Juan Cena

Considering most Eurovision artists don’t have deals with US record companies, It would be pretty hard to get a Eurovision song on the charts right off the block.

I’m hoping to se some Billboard chart action this coming week, though.

The results are poor. I expected them to do better on the charts. But at least they did well in their own countries.
