Chart success for Eurovision songs in Sweden

Last year Emmelie De Forest topped the swedish download charts the week after the Eurovision Song Contest with Margaret Berger and Anouk completing the top 3. This year proves to be another success for the Eurovision participants with the Common Linnets topping the chart ahead of Conchita Wurst.

Every Sunday the swedish chart "Digilistan" presents the most downloaded songs of the week. And just like in 2013 the chart is invaded by songs from the Eurovision Song Contest.
