Top Facebook Moments of 2014

30 December 2014 at 13:06 CET

With over 925,000 "likes", our Facebook account is the most popular social media outlet for Europe's favourite TV show. Now we will look at our top 10 posts of 2014, based on the number of "likes" they received. Will we make it to 1 million by May? We hope so!

10. Minipop Icons

Every year since 2011, Ben Morris has produced cartoon figures of every artist participating in the Eurovision Song Contest. This post showed each of the 2014 participants on a map of Europe, a post which became a hit with our fans! 

9. Tomorrow... You're always a day away!

The excitement was difficult to ignore and with just one day to go until the Grand Final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, it was quite obvious that this was not just reserved for those of us lucky enough to be in Copenhagen. 

8. "Tolerance, Acceptance and Love"

These were the words uttered by the lovely Conchita Wurst, winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. This powerful statement resonated well with our fans, whose "likes" made this our 8th most popular post of 2014. 

7. Thank you!

The day after the Grand Final we shared this picture of Conchita, which she took on arrival back home in Vienna. She just wanted to say thank you to everyone out there who supported her. 

6. Europe, we are now live!

At 21:00 CET on the 10th of May the Grand Final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest went live. Always an exciting moment that can be felt throughout Europe!

5. 800,000 likes!

Saturday the 10th of May was a special day for a variety of reasons, and was also the day we achieved 800,000 likes on our Facebook page! Since then this has grown by a further 125,000 so we are pretty confident we will have reached 1,000,000 by May next year. 

4. Tonight is the night!

Just hours before the Grand Final went live, we posted this reminder to watch the show and it became our 4th most liked post of 2014! In the arena you could really feel the atmosphere, something that was captured by our developing article, which you can still view by clicking on the link in our post. 

3. She can't be beaten!

Towards the end of the voting, it became clear that Conchita Wurst could not be beaten and that Austria had won the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. Our post announcing this subsequently became the 3rd most liked of 2014. Cool, eh?

2. That's it from us!

After two weeks of rehearsals and live shows it would have been remiss of us not to thank DR, Conchita and our wonderful fans for making the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest so spectacular. 

1. "This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom" 

Soon after Conchita's victory, we shared this picture posted by the BBC's Eurovision page quoting her now famous speech where she called for a world of peace and freedom. This instantly became our most "liked" post of 2014.
