Eurovision 2019 – The EBU has today released viewing figures for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. 182 Million people watched the Eurovision semi-finals and / or final on TV for at least a minute. In the week running up to the Grand Final, 40 Million watched content on the official Eurovision YouTube channel. These views came from 225 different territories.
Backing up the theory that Eurovision is attracting a younger audience, three quarters of the viewers online via YouTube for the final were under 35 years old, and the youth audience (15-24 year olds) of the show was a large proportion.
There were 5 million engagements on Eurovision’s official social media, with Instagram taking 70% of the share.
The winner, Duncan Laurence, of the Netherlands, made 4.5 million impressions on social media.
