Armenia, Aram Mp3, 2

Most years, it’s easy to pick a winner for ESC, months in advance, even before the National Finalis complete (hello Loreen). However, this year it’s much more difficult—and much more exciting. Last year there were 3 favourites, Denmark, Norway and Ukraine, which all finished in the top 4. This year Aram MP3 is predicted to win, but the race is tighter than Maria Yaremchuk’s stomach. Aram Mp3’s odds have slid recently, even if he remains the favourite. Sanna from Sweden, who desperately wants you to undo her sad love, is second in the odds and narrowing in…

Bookies aside, YouTube offers an interesting glimpse into what Eurovision voters are watching. It shows who is generating buzz and who may be able to ride a wave of momentum and popular support to victory. Yes, this approach is limited for several reasons, which we outline here. But it’s still an interesting barometer (among many others). So yes: you need to take this with a grain of salt!

Here are the YouTube statistics as of 1PM GMT on Monday, 14th of April, 2014. This list of rankings only includes views from the official eurovision.tv YouTube channel. Views form the host broadcasters’ channels, the artists’ private channels and other channels may mean something, but we simply cannot aggregate all of them.

Eurovision contestants ranked by YouTube Views

1. Armenia: 1,950,555
2. Austria: 1,482,772
3. Montenegro: 760,387
4. Spain:558,277
5. Italy: 555,918
6. United Kingdom: 535,938
7. Azerbaijan: 502,310
8. Israel: 445,781
9. Poland: 361,339
10. Ukraine: 346,941
11. Sweden: 331,023
12. Romania: 323,578
13. Russia: 316,223
14. Hungary: 253,150
15. France: 250,918
16. Macedonia: 248,325
17. The Netherlands: 193,892
18. Lithuania: 180,479
19. Ireland: 178,944
20. San Marino:177,859
21. Greece: 170,197
22. Norway: 166,516
23. Belarus: 166,345
24. Estonia: 159,510
25. Albania: 153,503
26. Denmark:144,261
27. Iceland: 142,803
28. Malta: 129,288
29. Georgia: 126,333
30. Portugal: 125,571
31. Belgium: 121,140
32. Latvia: 117,256
33. Moldova: 116,657
34. Finland: 113,967
35. Switzerland: 113,777
36. Slovenia: 53,208
37. Germany: 50,681

The top three from two weeks ago remain at the top. However, Ruth Lorenzo and Emma passed Molly, who is now down in sixth. Macedonia dropped down 5 places into 16th! France have dropped 4 spots. The Netherlands have shot up 4 places, so they’re not staying calm after the storm, y’all. Denmark have moved up 10 places. That’s a big jump. Sadly Basim is still only in 26th…

Just a note that different videos were uploaded at different times which give advantages and disadvantages. Slovenia changed their official video, so that’s why it has less views than on the first statistic on March 30th.

We’ll see you again in 2 weeks on the 27th of April, and see does someone finally take over Aram?

Germany has barely promoted Elaiza overseas..I don’t understand why? I can actually see Is It Right coming last..and being performed first.

@Charles Armenia isn’t desperate, you silly. Don’t exaggerate importance of ESC. If for you it means everything, it doesn’t mean that entire nation has the same mental issue. 🙂
I hope you’re realize that you talk about countries as if they were persons)) :/

Youtube or my neighbour’s dog can predict all they want … But taking this seriously to the point of believing that he actually can win is just absurd. This has been and remains desperate …and a great song always speaks for itself … not this way I’m afraid. Armenia needs to calm down and stop wanting to be the centre of attention in such a desperate way. It’s enough already with what Azerbaijan has been doing over the years … Desperation did not give Sweden and Denmark victory, their music did … Listen and learn for once!

One of my Armenian friends told me he’s actually a pharmacist.
I liked the song first, but it bored me after a few listens. Anyway, good luck Aram from Azerbaijan!

Youtube viewing fugures doesn’t determine eurovision song contest, performance, results, if we look at these youtubes, OGAE’s, Bookies they are not exatly same with their list, so if we follow them and predict how countries will score we can only confuse ourselves. As for Aram mp3, his studio version may be liked and viewed via youube etc. but the live version the performance will be viewed too, there is nothing special about singigng “You are all alone” and then “You are not alone” and then scream “WHAT IFFFF…..” Thank god we have real ballad songs which are contemporary, contender and… Read more »

Since all of the 37 entries are not released on the same day, some earlier than the others, they should do the rate of the views of videos of different entries-slash-countries (# of views per day)!!!! This should feel right!!!

#All Haters,
If you are here to show how uneducated you are, please NOTE that this is not the place for that. If You have anything against the poles or youtube views please that confirm Aram’s song is a good one, please write a detailed email or a letter to them explaining your views of how unfair the pols are. We do not need to know your uncertain predictions that are based on nothing.

Oh Save it! If Conchita can move on so can you. So accept the reality! Lena from Germany was a porn star. But still people didn’t care. This is a song competition and accept the fact that Aram’s song is the one that stands out the most.

This YouTube ranking is not reliable, at least concerning Basim from Denmark. The official Melodi Grand Prix video with Basim and Cliche Love Song, with the perfomance at the Danish national show, has had more than 1.5 million views! Therefore Denmark must at least be on the second place, on the YouTube-list!

@Reality, that is a good point! And I agree, that would be a more accurate way to know, but we would also need to take into account how many people actually like or dislike the video, against how many people just view it, so is still tricky to determine if people is watching a given video because they actually like the song or for any other reason, because most people only watch it without leaving any indication of why they did. But anyway, as I said, is still interesting to look at this numbers, they still give you an idea… Read more »

Youtube views count for nothing….Denmark was nowhere near the top at this stage past year and won easily. Sweden and Hungary (11 and 14) will both be in the top four on the night….as for Armenia, it is easing in the bookmakers and is a poor price for a favourite….best each way bets are UK and Hungary…!!

Youtube views don’t say much but obviously the likes and dislikes say it. 90% likes? Then definitely people love the song. In Conchita’s case it’s different. Over 60% dislikes. Do the math. For the bookies: I don’t think Aram is losing their interest at all and the more he performs during the tour the more people are going to love him. Just watch his live performance in London. Not only is he a great singer, but a genius singer too. You’ll see how he changes the beginning boring parts by adding a lot of character.
