Netta, SuRie and Eleni Foureira Enter the UK Singles Chart!

Only three of this year’s Eurovision songs have entered the UK Singles Chart this weekend.

The highest placing of the Eurovision songs was the Israeli Eurovision winner Netta Barzilai. Her song ‘Toy’ entered the Chart at number 49.

Meanwhile the UK’s very own SuRie entered the chart one position behind Netta. Her song ‘Storm’ was a new entry at position 50 on the Chart.

Cypriot representative Eleni Foureira’s song ‘Fuego’ which finished second in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest debuted at position 64 on the UK Singles Chart.

Though none of this year’s Eurovision songs manager to crack the Top 40, this is not uncommon. The best placing Eurovision song in recent years has been Loreen’s ‘Euphoria’ which entered the top 10 in 2012, peaking at number 3. This is the highest chart position for a non-UK Eurovision entry since Johnny Logan’s ‘Hold Me Now’ in 1987.

This week the number one spot continues to be occupied by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa who’s song ‘One Kiss’ sees a sixth week in the chart. Second spot went to Drake’s ‘Nice For What’, while Ariana Grande rounds out the top three with ‘No Tears Left To Cry’.
