A spokesperson from JohnSlots commented on the findings “Countries participating in Eurovision are sometimes accused of tactical voting based on national allegiances, rather than judging each song by its merits. That’s why it’s fascinating to see how songs are performed on the internet before the competition begins, when people are choosing to listen to a song because they like it rather than because they like the country that the artist is from. It will also be interesting to see if the Italian entry’s impressive number of streams will translate into success on the night.”
