UK Chart Update: Emmelie de Forest Lands in Top 20

The victor at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, Emmelie de Forest, has secured a Top 20 hit in the UK. It was announced yesterday that her winning song, Only Teardrops, has entered the British chart at Number 15.

It's slightly disappointing, as the Midweek chart had indicated that Emmelie was set to storm the Top 10. However, it seems that other songs around her continued to shift more copies forcing her debut placing lower. But, how is Only Teardrops performing in selected music charts across Europe? Here's the current positions:

National Chart Position
Austria 63
Belgium 13
Denmark 1
Netherlands 28
Finland 17
France 79
Ireland 5
Spain 14
Sweden 3

Emmelie has also crept into the Top 50 of the Australian chart at Number 47.

Other Eurovision-related songs to register on various European charts this weekend are:

Tomorrow (Malta)
You (Sweden)
Euphoria (Sweden)
L'essenziale (Italy)
I Feed You My Love (Norway)
Marry Me (Finland)
Glorious (Germany)
Believe in Me (UK)
Birds (The Netherlands)
What If (Russia)
You and Me (Switzerland)
Shine (Austria)

Aside from Denmark's winner, only the songs from Norway and The Netherlands are making any great impression - specifically on their own country's national charts: Number 11 and Number 8 respectively. Italy's Marco Mengoni still appears on the Italian chart at Number 13, having earlier completed a run of eight consecutive weeks at Number One.

Not only are these singles finding some success, but in the UK, the 2013 Eurovision Album has now entered the Official Compilations Album Chart Top 10 at Number 10.

Should we expect a better showing of Eurovision songs on national charts across Europe?
