One month ago Wiwi asked y’all to let him know which Eurovision 2012 song had climbed to the top of your most-played lists. After one month and a total of 3,123 votes, Wiwi can now reveal that Jedward’s “Waterline” is the song y’all have on repeat.

On July 22 John and Edward sat in fourth place. But a last minute surge of support from their fans helped them finished on top. They received 417 votes, around 13% of the total, putting them ahead of runner-up Loreen. Her ESC-winning entry “Euphoria” earned 278 votes, or around 9%.

The other songs in the top five finished neck-and-neck. Cyprus’s Ivi Adamou—who had some of the hottest choreography in Baku—came third with 186 votes. That’s just one more vote than chain-smoking Macedonian Kaliopi, whose song “Crno i belo” divided opinion among the Wiwi Jury ahead of Eurovision. Romania’s Mandinga came fifth with “Zaleilah.” They banked 171 votes.

Some contestants who fared poorly at Eurovision have managed to do better on our list. Norway’s Tooji, who finished last in the grand final, came eighth in our poll. France’s Anggun, who received 0 points from televoters in Baku, came 10th with “Echo (You and I).” Gypsy temptress and disco diva Sofi Marinova came 17th in our poll. That’s the highest finish by a non-qualifier at Eurovision.

Interesting that Euphoria, Eurovision winner in 2012, is far away in this poll from Waterline, who was on 19th position in the final placement and 10th rank in televote. Excepting Sweden, Romania and Greece, there are great differences between the first 10 in this poll and televote final results.

Kaliopi isn’t a chain smoker. :S
