Eurovision 2014: What do the Youtube views show?

by Robin Scott 68 views

A few days ago the deadline passed for submitting this year’s songs in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 and we take a look on how many views the official videos got so far.

One way of analysing how popular the songs are is to see how many views they have had on the official youtube video site. While there is no such thing as an exact science it does provide an interesting statistic, and shows how often the fans want to see the entries which will be participating in Copenhagen.

As of this time these videos are a mix of recordings from National Finals or videos specifically made for the song. Only one country has yet to provide a video to the EBU, and this is Russia.

From these figures, taken at 13:00 CET on Sunday 23 March, you will see Armenia is at the top of the pile with over double the number of views that Austria has. Closely behind, in third place, is Montenegro
