This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is just around the corner and it’s bringing many amazing new songs our way. Now it’s a better time than ever to look back at some of the best songs from the past few years, and here are three viral Eurovision hits that got everyone talking.
Rosa Linn – “Snap”
Rosa Linn’s “Snap” didn’t make much of an impression at the Eurovision, finishing in the disappointing 20th place, but that didn’t stop it from going viral on TikTok. It became the first Eurovision song in 21 years to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart and led to Linn touring with Ed Sheeran and signing a deal with Columbia Records.
Måneskin – “Zitti e buoni”
Måneskin is one of the rare Eurovision acts to find international fame. They performed on SNL, scored a Grammy nod for the best new artist, and made quite a splash with their viral “Beggiin’” cover, but most of their fans discovered them long before that. “Zitti e buoni” started it all after it brought them a win at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
Daði Freyr – “Think About Things”
Daði Freyr was one of the favorites coming into the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest and everyone was raving about his viral hit “Think About Things”. It all went downhill after the contest was canceled in the face of the COVID pandemic, and the replacement song “10 Years” failed to replicate its success, finishing in the fourth spot.
