"Waterloo" was voted as the British public's all-time favourite

Following a night of Eurovision programming yesterday, the BBC have revealed the results of the 10 most voted songs in “Eurovision: Come Together”. ABBA’s “Waterloo” was voted as the British public’s all-time favourite Eurovision song, while Conchita Wurst and Loreen completed the top three.

All four entries from the UK made it to the top 10 in the voting, along with other past winners including Mรฅns Zelmerlรถw and Alexander Rybak. The British public were able to vote via the BBC Eurovision website. The voting figures from the show were not published by the BBC. According to overnight viewing figures, 2.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the show.

“Love Shine A Light” missed out on top three

Despite the song being the main focal point of last night’s “Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light”, Katrina & The Waves only managed a fourth-place finish in “Come Together”. The full top 10, as voted by the British public, can be seen below:

Many of the newer entries in the voting missed out on the top 10 including the top two from 2018 – “Toy” and “Fuego”. Last year’s runner-up, “Soldi”, also failed to make it into the UK’s top 10 of all-time.

Elsewhere in the UK’s Eurovision coverage, overnight viewing figures revealed that “Europe Shine A Light” averaged 2.4 million viewers and BBC2’s “The A-Z of Eurovision” averaged 1.13 million viewers.

After joining the team in 2018, I've been lucky enough to cover four Eurovision seasons and I'm excited to see what 2023 has in store for us! I'm a music enthusiast, but also enjoy learning - so you'll likely find me in a classroom or listening to the best new music!
