The UK Charts last year following Eurovision 2014 in Copenhagen were awash with songs from the contest. Would it be the same in 2015?
Sadly the answer is unfortunately NO. Last year you may remember that 13 songs from Copenhagen made the Top 100 with 4 making the Top 40 – SEE HERE. The Top 40 for the week ending May 31st have just been released and only one song from Vienna has made the Top 40 chart.
It comes as no surprise but it is the winner of the contest – Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw and his song ‘Heroes’. In the mid-week charts Måns was riding high in the Top 5. When the last download was purchased last night ‘Heroes’ finally entered the UK charts at #11 just outside of the Top 10.
Outside of the Top 40 Belgium’s Loic Nottet entered the charts at #69 with his song ‘Rhythm Inside’.
Then at #97 we have Russia’s Polina Gagarina and her second place song ‘A Million Voices’.
