TV viewers of the Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden 2009-2019

The number of TV viewers of the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Sweden slightly decreased in the last years. Roughly 2.6 million people watched the last broadcast on May 18, 2019, when John Lundvik represented Sweden in the music competition show in Israel. This was an audience share of 79.1 percent among people aged 3 to 99 years. By contrast, the number of viewers amounted to approximately 3.63 million in 2016.

Where to watch the ESC?

The ESC is broadcast on the public TV channel svt1 or online on svt Play. Also, the national preliminary round of the European Song Contest Melodifestivalen is organized by the Swedish public service broadcasters. Notably, Melodifestivalen is more popular than the Eurovision Song Contest itself, having one million viewers more than the ESC in 2018.

Sweden’s success at the ESC

Sweden is the second most successful country at the Eurovision, with six wins between 1956 and 2018. In general, the Nordic country ranked in the highest places in all recent years. In 2015, Måns Zelmerlöw was the last Swedish winner of the competition show.
