    • Eurovision 2021 was huge!

      The annual international song contest took place in Rotterdam, Netherlands across May 18 to May 22.

      This year’s competition was seen by 183 million viewers across 36 markets, officials reported Monday (May 31).

      The Grand Final achieved a 4% higher TV audience share than the previous contest in 2019. (The 2020 competition was scrapped amid the pandemic.)

      The contest was especially popular among young viewers, with the 15–24-year-olds bracket up 7% versus 2019.

      50.6 million unique viewers across 234 countries watched on the official YouTube channel, up 28% from 2019, and of those, 18-to-34-year-olds made up 71% of the viewers.

      Individual countries saw big wins, including the winning country Italy, which saw 4.3 million viewers tuning in for the Grand Final, or 24.4% of TV viewing in the country.

      “We’re thrilled to see that audiences welcomed back the Eurovision Song Contest in such huge numbers and very proud to have brought millions together at a time when so many are still apart,” said Eurovision’s Martin Ísterdahl.

      • I guess it's 183 million viewers in all platforms (TV, web, live and on-demand) . I am also certain this is not a figure for viewers watching the whole show from start to end but rather for at least 5 minutes. Do they also include views for individual performances?

        I think the 2016 contest was watched by 200m people, but the 2017 show had a sharp decline due to Russia's absence.

        Curious to know the number of people that watched it on Peacock (US).

        • Great singer. Recent single (she's need to cut the entry down a lot more of course):


          All of these people showing interest should be put forward for a public vote - like Song For Europe.

            • Gemma Collins has expressed interest now, you want to throw her name in the mix too? She wants to do a song with Snoop Dogg. We already know Snoop isn’t choosy what he lends his voice too.

                LMAO, she wants to be the UK answer to San Marino. If they keep the pre-recorded vocals for next year, i guess she won't sound too bad LOL

                    • Truly a missed opportunity for Norway
                      Even though I think it probably would've been too gay even for Eurovision, the thought of Moldovan grandmas possibly being confronted with gay bear culture does make me chuckle

                      • oh god that song/performance was a campy mess but i have to admit Norway had one of the strongest national finals this year (if not the strongest).

                        my guilty pleasure:



                        it could have been a tiktok hit, imagine the filters etc

                        Unpopular opinion: i think it would've done better in televoting than TIX.


                        Norway had another great 80s throwback entry, a bit similar to Greece:

                            By the way, SanRemo was so good this year they had another massive hit (52 million views at the moment). Very Empire Of The Sun-ish.

                                wow first time i hear this song, it's really good (yes very Empire of The Sun-ish) and not the typical San Remo song.

                                it got the 4th place (out of 26 entries) and peaked at number 1 in the Italian Singles chart (Maneskin peaked at number 2..)

                                It wouldn't have won Eurovision but it's another good Italian song.

                                    omg an hour of it it wasn’t even an impressive note it was just a very long flat sound. It’s how I imagine tinnitus.

                                          • How could Poland not make it to the finals? Seriously, their song is one of this year's best.

                                              ...I guess that‘s based on the recorded version. His vocals were rather bad live and I thought he even missed some of the lyrics. And the performance is what people vote for.

                                              • I see. That's a pity then because the song itself is extremely catchy and cool. I would even prefer it to some other current synthpop songs.
