Eurovision 2024: Which rehearsal had the most views on the third day?

Yesterday, rehearsals continued energetically, with the Malmö Arena hosting the first eight countries of the second semifinal! Be sure to also read our article from yesterday regarding the views of the eight countries that completed their rehearsals on Sunday.

However, as we know on TikTok, all the first rehearsals are uploaded. Apart from their performances, we’ll also get a sneak peek backstage before they take the stage for the first time in a video of about one minute.

One of the many features of TikTok is the ability to add songs to each user’s video creation. However, the TikTok algorithm is usually able to detect the song used in the video, assign it to the correct track, and then include it in the total number of videos where that sound has been used. Based on this capability, the most popular songs before rehearsals were from the Netherlands and Italy. Will they receive the same promotion as before?

In less than 24 hours (April 30, 2024, time  CET), since the first clip from the rehearsals was uploaded, we have a indicative sample of which rehearsal was favored by the audience (here it should be noted that the videos were uploaded one after the other with a one and a half hour interval and there was a significant delay in their publication).

The rehearsals that had the most views are:

  1. Greece: Marina Satti – ZARI – 1.6 million views
  2. Switzerland: Nemo – The Code – 391 thousand views
  3. Albania: Besa – TiTan – 221.7 thousand views
  4. Austria: Kaleen – We Will Rave – 199.4 thousand views
  5. Armenia: LADANIVA – Jako – 183 thousand views
  6. Malta: Sarah Bonnici – Loop –  175.3 thousand views
  7. Czechia: Aiko – Pedestal – 165.2 thousand views
  8. Denmark: SABA – SAND – 156.7 thousand views

With this small sample, we can infer that:

  • It’s worth noting that with the first rehearsal of the Greek entry has been published 18 hours prior, within this timeframe, ZARI achieved a record number of views compared to any other entry in previous years – where TikTok is used as a platform for posting snapshots of the first rehearsals. The Greek entry seems to have resonance across Europe as it has gathered 170 thousand likes.
  • Second in the ranking is the favorite for victory, Switzerland, which trails the Greek entry by 4 times in views.
  • Many rearrangements can occur between the fourth and eighth positions since there are countries whose rehearsals were published at the end of the day, resulting in them not receiving enough publicity.

The top six countries with the most views from the two days are as follows:

  1. Greece: Marina Satti – ZARI – 1.6 million views
  2. Poland: LUNA – The Tower – 1.2 milion views
  3. Serbia: Teya Dora – Ramonda – 842.2 thousand views
  4. Ukraine: alyona alyona & Jerry Heil – Teressa & Maria – 817.7 thousand views
  5. Croatia: Baby Lasagna – Rim Tim Tagi Dim – 682.7 thousand views

TikTok has played a significant role in the success of Eurovision songs in recent years. For example, Duncan Laurence’s winning entry “Arcade” became a global hit a year after winning the competition when it was used in over a million videos on TikTok. One of the earliest TikTok successes from Eurovision was Getter Jaani’s “Rockefeller Street”, which went viral on the platform in 2018 and has since been used in over two million videos. Let’s not forget that Armenia’s entry in 2022 by Rosa Linn with “Snap” gained over a billion views on the platform. Finally, Norway’s entry last year gained significant worldwide publicity months before the competition week, where it secured fifth place.

Switzerland: Nemo Things, singing “The Code”, will represent the country in Malmö!

The days for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest are approaching and more and more countries around Europe keep on announcing their official entries and representatives. So, the time has come for even one more country to announce its representative, that is going to travel to Malmö in May and compete among thirty six (36) entries, and this is Switzerland!

Thus, only a few minutes before, at 11 a.m., the official channel of Eurovision Song Contest on YouTube, announced that it is Nemo Things that will represent the country in Malmö, singing the song “The Code”.

As it is already known, the final selection for 2024 was conducted not only by a Swiss jury who had aproximately listened to 450 different songs, that had been submitted during August of 2023, but also from an International jury coming from different places all around Europe. Also, on December the 5th, the very final five artists had recorded their songs. Furtermore, it is worthy to mention here that one mumber of the Swiss jury was Luca Hänni, who represented Switzerland in 2019, while also Teya, the representative of Austria in 2023 along with Salena-Maria Edbauer, was also a member of the International jury and shared her feelings of excitement and support towards this year’s Swiss entry.

Who is Nemo Things?

Nemo Things is this year’s second artist that identifies as a non-binary person, after Ireland’s Bambie Thug. In 2017, they released their single “Du”, while some years later, in May of 2022, they moved in Berlin, where they released the song “own shit”, which marked a step away from Nemo’s first origin in rap sound. Their songThe Code that will be performed in May, has been composed by Nemo themself, but also from Benji Alasu, NYLAN (Lasse Nymann) and Linda Dale as well, who also wrote “Queen of Kings“, the Norwegian entry for 2023.

On Monday, the 26th of February, the Head of the Swiss Delegation, Yves Schifferle, posted on a story on Instagram that this year’s entry is not going to be a ballad, while he had also erased the term “male” out of respect towards the artist’s gender identity.

Switzerland will not be represented by a male ballad at Eurovision 2024!

The head of Switzerland’s Eurovision delegation, Yves Schifferle, disclosed via an Instagram story that this year’s Swiss entry will not be a male ballad.

The country sent ballads performed by male artists to the song contest between 2020 and 2023. That’s about to change after four years. It’s unclear, though, if the performer is going to be a man or what music genre the song that will represent Switzerland in Malmö will fall into.

Five artists vying to represent Switzerland

Almost 420 songs were submitted for the country’s representation at Eurovision 2024. On December 5, five shortlisted artists recorded their songs in the SRF studios in Zurich. After hearing all five songs, a jury and an audience committee consisting of more than a hundred people will make a final decision, early in the new year. In March 2024, the final result will be disclosed, revealing the contestant who will represent Switzerland in the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest.


With his song “Watergun”, Remo Forrer represented Switzerland this year, placing 20th in the Grand Final.
