Eurovision is not just a stage for the competition contestants to showcase their talents to European audiences – interval acts can get a boost from the contest too.
After their Eurovision grand final performance, the Ukrainian electronic folk band Onuka has entered the charts around Europe, and their videos have racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
Onuka’s EP “Vidlik” that consists of the tracks “Svitanok,” “Vidlik,” “Other (Intro),” “Other” and “1986,” two of which they performed during their mash-up “Megamix” at Eurovision grand final on May 13, is currently number 26 in the U.K.’s iTunes album chart and number 24 in Germany’s iTunes chart. Onuka’s music video for the song “Vidlik” is also ninth in the U.K.’s iTunes video chart. Onuka’s songs were not even in the top 100 as of May 12.
