When the entries for the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest were being revealed, there was somewhat a moment in time when somebody stated that Sweden will be the song to beat this year as Loreen was set to take to the stage with the wonderful track Euphoria which mixes together pop and dance to create a song which many people would definitely listen to either in the sanctity of their very own homes or even within a club. Technically speaking, the song would have been an amazing winner one to be remember by many in years to come and when it was the runaway leader last night, it seemed that everything would be going perfectly right and so far that seems to be the case. Earlier on this evening, the Swedish Head of Delegation, Christer Bjorkman confirmed that the country is ready to host next years' event with a number of venues and cities to be confirmed even though the brand new arena in Stockholm which opened this year seems to be the early front runner. The winning song of this years' competition is already a huge hit in Europe.

Digital sales have somewhat become accountable to the way that things go about within the music industry at the moment and therefore, it definitely comes to no surprise that the people have already made their purchases of the track so much so that it has already climbed to the number #1 position in six countries being none other than MaltaCyprusDenmarkFinlandGreece and of course Sweden but then again it is also found in the runner-up position of number #2 in a total of three countries, these being none other than IrelandNorway and The Netherlands whilst one of the biggest markets in Europe, that being the one of Germany is also putting her in position #3 at the moment with the possibility of going higher very much realistic in the morning. We have compiled a list of the charts in Europe in order to show how much diversity there is when it comes to this entry. Below you will note the full lists of countries where the track has already hit the charts including the ones that have been mentioned above.

  • Malta (#1)
  • Cyprus (#1)
  • Denmark (#1)
  • Sweden (#1)
  • Greece (#1)
  • Finland (#1)
  • Ireland (#2)
  • Norway (#2)
  • The Netherlands (#2)
  • Austria (#4)
  • Belgium (#5)
  • Spain (#5)
  • United Kingdom (#12)
  • France (#32)
  • Portugal (#39)

This is only the beginning because it is important to note that Loreen and this track have been somewhat leading over these iTunes charts for quite some time and when having a look at them this evening, there are many songs coming from the Eurovision Song Contest including that of Malta whose This Is The Night seems to have managed to keep up the number #2 position in Malta as well as a brand new placing of #122 within Estonia who this year managed to finish in sixth place. It is always an interesting couple of charts to keep an eye on especially due to the fact that success on other charts, the official ones does not stay too far away most of the time. Stay tuned to for all of the latest updates from the world of the Eurovision Song Contest.
