On average, 1,079,719 Flemings watched the finals of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. This is clear from the number of viewers announced by public broadcasters. The highlight of the night was a performance by Jérémie Makiese around 10:30. Then more than 1,359,476 people saw how the Belgians carried it.
In the final of the Eurovision Song Contest, VRT achieved a 68% market share. In total, nearly 2 million Flemish people watched the show on Saturday for at least 10 minutes. This is one-third of all Flemish people.
The number of viewers is less than last year when Hooverphonic represented Japan at the music festival. At that time, an average of 1,480,527 people were watching. This is no exception, as the number of viewers will always be high when Flanders candidates participate.
More and more people are following the Eurovision Song Contest online. VRT NU received approximately 1.2 million visits last week from 766,000 unique users of Eurovision Content.
