Some of this year's songs were already hits at home before they came to Kyiv. Francesco Gabbani's Occidentalis Karma was one example, which had already been certified 4 times platinum in Italy prior to the Eurovision Song Contest.
After the contest This Is Love by Demy was at #3 in Greece, France's Alma is currently at #5 in the French singles chart with Requiem and Manel Navarro's Do It For Your Lover peaked at #8 in the official singles chart in Spain in the week after the contest, and it's still at number one in the Physical Singles chart.
Besides these strong results from iTunes it's worth mentioning that the Top 4 placed songs Amar Pelos Dois, Beautiful Mess, Hey Mamma and City Lights, have entered the Spotify Top 50 chart in 15 European countries, meaning the younger generation (13 – 23) are not only watching the shows but also enjoying the music. Many of the songs have been especially successful in Spotify's Viral Global Top 50 (Amar Pelos Dois is currently at #1).
If we focus on the songs placed inside the Top 5 in the Grand Final ranking, they have charted in several territories.
Portugal won the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time, and of course Amar Pelos Dois became a big success at home, but also charted in most of the European charts translating into a Top 15 entry at the Euro Digital Songs, hitting #13 this week.
Completing the Top 5 we find another Eurovision successful country in this decade, Belgium. Blanche and City Lights managed the biggest chart impact out of all the participants, excluding the winner, so far: it made the Top 40 in Finland (download), France, Germany, Iceland, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and UK (download) and of course it's a big national hit in Belgium.
Other finalists that were succesful in the international charts include the rest of the Top 10: Italy (even managing to peak at #10 in the Euro Digital Songs chart), Romania (charting in seven countries), Hungary (in three other countries), Australia (in two more countries) and Norway (in two other countries).
Even some of the songs that didn't qualify from the Semi-Finals had a life in their national charts (Peak position): Iceland (1), Estonia (2), Latvia (6), F.Y.R. Macedonia (8), Finland (10), Slovenia (12) and Switzerland (37).
