Eurovision 2021 Grand Final Acts
Photo: EBU/Thomas Hanses/Andres Putting

Eurovision 2021 has come and gone. But it’s so much more than a one-night extravaganza. Almost all of this year’s entries are finding new life on Spotify. Eleven songs have even cracked Spotify’s global top 200 chart for Sunday 23 May. By comparison, only four Eurovision songs made the global charts on the day after the 2019 final.

Spotify Global Viral Charts – Top 50 – 23 May 2021

Unlike the main chart which counts just streams, the viral chart is calculated by an algorithm based on additional factors such as social media shares. So while the viral countdown can help highlight tracks with online buzz, it doesn’t necessarily equal mainstream popularity.

  • #2 – Ukraine’s Go_A “Shum”
  • #5 – Finland’s Blind Channel “Dark Side”
  • #6 – Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears “Tout l’Univers”
  • #7 – France’s Barbara Pravi “Voilà”

Today the Maneskin are the third most listened to artists in the world and have beaten the likes of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Pink, Coldplay and Bruno Mars. Better than Damiano, Victoria, Ethan and Thomas only BTS and Olivia Rodrigo, current queen of all charts with her debut album. 10 hours ago

This Eurovision edition is SUCH a success. A success for national languages, for cultural diversity, for high level production, for good music in general. I’ve seen a lot of very positive reviews saying that the contest is much more modern that what people expected. I think we’re moving away from the « trollfest » that ESC used to be in people’s mind. I’m so happy about it. The Dutch team did an amazing job and all the delegations as well for selecting their songs. I hope that this will motivate even more quality artists to participate next year.

I know I’m about to get boo’d for this bit but I so happy the contests has moved away from the camp drabbness of the 2000s, it is almost indistinguishable besides the call backs. The show has become so much slicker, cooler, diverse and much more in touch with music today. I can’t see a dancing turkey ever performing in this eurovision which makes me happy Previously, in all editions I really disliked the vast majority of the music, this is the first year where so many songs were amazing and everyone (almost) elevated good or bad songs via staging.… Read more »

I am very happy too. When I discovered Eurovision as a kid in the 90s, Eurovision was a very decadent thing, I think it’s a miracle it didn’t die back then. Now it’s something that you can share with lots of people and it does have an impact on society. Still lots of haters but the quality and the level of the music and the shows have improved beyond any expectation I could have ever had.

I agree. This year it also showed that to succeed in the contest you need to be authentic – 4 out of first top five songs are sung in national language, and 9 out of first 10 songs are written by the performers themselves. This authenticity translates when delivering the performance on stage and it gets you votes. I also don’t think Eurovision should ever scrap jury (like some of wiwibloggers are saying) because they are the ones who ensured rise in quality of the contest over the past decade and brought it back from the camp drabness that was… Read more »

Flabbergasted by Ukraine’s popularity but good for them! There are a few ESC themed memes circulating around Serbia, the one about Ukraine is hilarious – it shows the Ukrainian singer giving the “evil eye”, and the text says: “Ukrainian performer accidentally puts a curse on 180 million spectators” 🙂 (no point in sharing it here, it’s in Serbian, and I haven’t found it in English, it’s probably local).

Greeks thought she had a winning chance. I remember greek media saying after the final ” we should have sent Kostas Martakis ( a big name competing in the national final that year ). Theres no way he would have done better though.

Of course, many greeks were rational enough to celebrate and love Kalomira to death till this day.

At first I thought that the one year break of the contest will harm the brand but apparently with all this diverse line up this year the contest is leading in a new direction which I absolutely love. Unique acts, impressive visuals, music for everyones taste without being -very- cheap or annoying. Cant wait for the italian flavour in the contest next year

The Sanremo stage has been designed by various people throughout the years. In 2021 and 2020 it has been designed by the veteran Gaetano Castelli and his daughter. In 2015, 2016 and 2017 by Riccardo Bocchini (you can find the timelapses on youtube by searching “scenografia festival sanremo”. In 2018 it was Mrs. Emanuela Trixie Zitkowski, daughter of the deceased myth Zitkowski, an old stage designer of the old RAI shows of the seventies and eighties. For the multicam director, the most acclaimed for the role is Duccio Forzano, who directed the Sanremo Festival 6 times in 2010, 2011, 2013,… Read more »

The stages of Sanremo are oldfashioned and unpractical for Eurovision stagings. I don’t like most of the stages Wieder has designed over the years, but they were mostly appropriate for the show. Sanremo is miles worse than Eurovision in every sense so I hope they don’t do nothing remotely similar to it.

I feel I may have to lay of Wiwibloggs comments for the next year as they are getting quite frustrating to read. By all means compliment Italy 2021, but do not do it at the detriment of others. We as euro fans should still be happy about other artists making it into the mainstream like Duncan and Dadi. On Twitter someone said maneskin were the first commercially successful Eurovision artists as europhoria was a commercial flop…
Be excited, but do not rewrite history.

Why do you take Twitter coments seriously? lol Especially during these days, a lot of comments come from people that know nothing about Eurovision (and that’s ok, I’m not saying that they should know what eurofans know). For example, how many tweets can you find from UK and Spain talking about leaving the contest using fake information? Thousands, easily. And like that, a lot more things related to the contest.

But should she? Wasn’t the whole appeal of sending Stefania that Greece were essentially sending a Dutch act? Granted Stefania got Greece its best result since 2013, but she didn’t write the song (which is totally fine because she sold it well, but I’d give Dimitris more credit for balancing an 80s homage, an epic grandeur and modernity sonically).

I can’t see why Stefania would be a huge draw in 2024 unless ERT know that she’s going to release a killer album and become a mega star.

I think that ERT is trying the same as with Helena Paparizou, born and raised in Sweden, went first in 2001 and got 3rd place, went again in 2005 and got 1st. Stefania was born and raised in the Netherlands, went in 2021 and got 10th place and if she goes again in 2024 she might get a better result, but im only making assumptions What I mean by that is that ERT is capitalizing on the fact that stefania got more know to the continent for this act, she will be more familiar with everything and everyone for 2024… Read more »

The difference between Helena and Stefania is that Helena was (and still is- probably the most successful ESC 2000s act in terms of her post ESC career, still going on today) a dynamo force in the Greek music scene, so despite being Swedish was probably more known in Greece than in Sweden.

Stefania has based her career in The Netherlands, and so doesn’t have the same position in the Greek music scene. Unless she reconfigures it, she’ll be more of a Dutch rather than Greek singer.

I think the days of typical Europop in Eurovision are over. I didn’t watch any previews to the big 5 just what I saw on the night and there really is something about Maneskin.

It’s got a serious groove and sticks in your head, how is that not a song? It’s pure rock, I’m an 80s child and to me this reminds me of the greatest classics of that time and the late 70s as well.

False idea. Many winners were really good sells like Euphoria, Mans and Heroes, Sobral also.
Last year despite no winner, Iceland Daði og Gagnamagnið did great on overall charts.
The exposure seems better this year because of the quality of the whole field. IMO of course.

The great quality of songs this year and the need of people to forget their problems and have fun made this contest one of the most remarkable ones i think

Fact is that Heroes was by far the most commercially successful song that year.
