Google has examined searches for countries' contestants to see who is attracting the most interest for the Eurovision Song Contest, The Sun reports.

According to Google, the top spot is almost certainly going to Duncan Laurence, who represents the Netherlands.

"If you look at which contestants people are searching for – awarding Eurovision-style points based on search activity for other countries' contestants – you'd find that the Netherlands is currently projected to win, followed by Russia and Italy," Google explained.

Google has also compared its search data with YouTube's – and the results are different.

According to YouTube, the country with the most YouTube views related to Eurovision is Italy, followed by Malta and the Netherlands.

But if you exclude a country's own views, it turns out that Malta is in the top spot.
