Due to strong promotion and higher interest in many countries, the songs from the ESC can be found in the charts all over Europe. No wonder there were more than 70 million viewers at the final. The aim of every participant is to be popular throughout Europe and selling their CD’s or downloads. This used not to be in former years. This is how it looks in the first week of June:
Ireland - > Jedward #2 (from #1) Germany - > Jedward #12, Blue #23 (from #7), Ell & Niki #32, Lena #43 (from #16), Eric Saade #47 Austria -> Jedward #9 (from #3), Blue #28 (from #8) France -> Amaury Vassili #7 (from #5) Sweden - > Jedward #11 (from #18), Eric Saade #25 Denmark -> A friend in London #40 (from #8) Bulgaria - > Poli Genova #5 United Kingdom - > Blue #38 (from #25)

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
